Zee TV sacks KSG from Qubool Hai; channel keen to sign Gurmeet, Barun, Mishal or Kushal......
The happenings of the television world are pretty erratic at times.
This morning the world woke up to media reports of beefy actor Karan Singh Grover being sacked by the channel from the popular show, Qubool Hai (4 Lions Films).
The buzz was indeed hot and our readers kept asking us on the credibility of the news. Well, we would like to say that the information is true.
But why would the channel let go such a promising actor and a popular figure?
Media reported of Karan being “unprofessional”. Here’s more from a credible channel source: “Things became really difficult for the channel in the last one month or so. He came on the sets only five to six times in the last one month. He kept cancelling his shoot dates. Even when on the sets, he was usually not in his senses as he was either drunk or had a hangover. Things went out of hand and after meeting with him yesterday, we asked him to move out of the show.”
Ahh…strong words, we must say.
Zee TV is expected to send an official statement to clarify more on the issue by the end of the day.
When we buzzed Karan he sent us a sms saying, “I will send an official statement by the evening.”
He also went on to share on his Facebook page, “Folks ! don't bother if I'm IN or OUT from #QuboolHai. Will give an Official Statement Soon. There is an old phenomena of the FILM INDUSTRY the show must go on.. !! Stay Tuned.”
Well, we shall wait on the respective official statements!!!
We also buzzed Producer Gul Khan but she chose not to comment anything on the issue.
Now if one man is out, another has to be in. The show is not going to shut shop with KSG’s exit.
The above credible channel source said that they have zeroed in on four names who can come in as the replacement.
“We are looking at a big alternate. Gurmeet Choudhary, Mishal Raheja, Kushal Tandon and Barun Sobti are the names we are pondering on. And one actor the channel is very keen on roping in is Mishal.”
Hmm…Gurmeet and Barun look difficult as they have been signed for another 4 Lions project on Star Plus (we reported about it).
Kushal on the other hand denied of being offered Qubool Hai (yet) and said that he is not keen on taking up television projects as of now as he just did Bigg Boss season 7 and intends to try his luck in movies.
So the bet can very well be put on Mishal. But given Mishal’s lack of interest towards television, let’s see if Zee manages to convince or cajole him to join Qubool Hai.
We buzzed Mishal and Gurmeet but did not get any response till the time of filing the article.
Well, let us know who do you think should come in as Karan’s replacement in the show. Hit the comment section below!!!
