Lead actor of ZEE TV’s hit show ‘Qubool Hai’, Karan Singh Grover has sensationally quit the show.
Grover who played the character of Asad since its launch last year, has been rumoured to be unhappy with the show due to differences with the producer, 4Lions.
Sources at Times Of India have branded the actor “unprofessional” for taking excessive time off from the show. The report said he was calling in sick to work but was spotted holidaying.
Grover talking exclusively to BizAsia confirmed his departure from the show. He added, “Yes. I would appreciate if you don’t believe all the crap that is going to be said about me tomorrow.” Asked, why he was leaving the show, he said, “Will give an official statement soon.”
Sounding bitter about his decision to leave, he said, “I was just waiting to see how low they can go.”
Ajay Bhalwankar, content head of the channel, confirmed the news to Times Of India, “No actor can hold shoots or dictate their terms and conditions to an extent that it hampers the show. We have initiated legal action against him.”
The channel will soon announce a new actor who will take over the role as Asad on the show.
