says actor, Rishi Dev aka Naksh, on reports of insecurity on the sets of the show.
Star Plus recently went all out to promote the wedding sequences in three of their shows Ishqbaaaz, Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? And Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. While the weddings of Iss Pyaar… and Ishqbaaaz will be telecast soon, there seems to be a delay in Yeh Rishta’s wedding track.
If reports in a daily are to be believed, Naksh (Rishi Dev) and Keerti’s (Mohena Singh) wedding, which was to be telecast this month (August), will now be telecast in September.
And the reason for this delay is said to be the leads of the show, Mohsin Khan (Kartik) and Shivangi (Naira). The report states that the leads are insecure of the screen space and also the focus shift from them to the parallel leads Rishi and Mohena’s characters. And in order to make Mohsin and Shivangi happy, the makers have suddenly shifted the track.
We got in touch with Rishi who said, “I honestly do not interfere in these matters (wedding track shift). Shifting the wedding track was clearly the writers’ and production’s call.”
When we quizzed the actor about Mohsin and Shivangi getting insecure of the screen space he and his co-actors were getting, he laughed off the statement and said, “There is no such insecurity or competition on the sets. Also, the show has been running for 9 years now and every character has been given equal importance. Nobody in the show has been sidelined and I am sure that these are just rumours and there is no truth to it.”
The wedding track of Naksh and Keerti will now be telecast sometime around the third or fourth week of September.
