After weeks of rumours, Chaitanya Choudhary has confirmed that he will be stepping into the shoes of Raman Bhalla, originally played by Karan Patel.
Choudhary will take the show forward as Patel left to focus on reality show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ in Bulgaria, for Colors.
Confirming the news, Choudhary told IWM Buzz, “It was a big decision to get into Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. I started my career with Balaji Telefilms. Recently I did Dil Hi Toh Hai with them. So when they called me for this, they shared with me the idea on how they want to take this role forward. I got on board and yes, I will be starting shoot soon.”
Asked about news of him replacing Patel on the show, he added, “I am not very clear on that. I am coming in his place for sure. But I am not aware of whether I am replacing him or not. As and when the show progresses, we will also get to know more about it.”
He was also aware that fans may not accept him as Raman opposite Ishita’s character, played by Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya. To this, he replied, “Quite possible!! I am here to do my work. I keep a very micro-view of things. I am here as an actor and I will do my job. For me it is like a task given to me and I will put in my best for sure.”
It is not clear if Patel will reprise his role after completing ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’.
