Vineet Raina was last seen in Zee TV's Punar Vivah season 1 and was a part of Star Plus's Ye Hain Mohabattein. But along with the replacement of the lead actor played by Cezanne Khan in the show Vineet's character (Mihir) too was replaced. Raj Singh Arora was signed in the show in place of Vineet.
TellyBuzz got in touch with the actor to know more about his sudden ouster from the show, other plans and much more...
On being asked Vineet to describe his character in the show Ye Hain Mohabattein, he says, "I was supposed to play the character of Mihir, who is Raman's brother-in-law. But Cezzane Khan (Raman) got replaced and Karan Patel came in his place. I shot with him as well but the requirement of the show didn't match and I was told that I would be replaced."
As per him, his character was looking the same age as that of Karan Patel and that is why he was replaced, "Earlier Cezzane was Raman and I was Mihir and on screen it was looking perfect. Then I don't know what happened between Cezzane and Ekta, and he got replaced. When Karan filled in, I was looking the same age as that of him. Ekta wanted the brother-in-law to look younger and thus I was replaced," says Vineet.
Vineet initially felt bad but now has no regrets of being replaced in the show and says, "I gave my 5 to 6 months for the show, first with Cezzane and later with Karan so it's obvious to feel bad. Even though in the meantime I missed out on many opportunities of new shows and entering in an on-going show, I was disturbed but have no regrets of doing this show. It's ok."
When we asked him the lost opportunities he says, "Well, I was supposed to play the lead in Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke, when a new lead was being introduced but I had to say no to them. There were few other shows but as I said, I'm ok with it. I'll get new shows and I am also doing a new documentary."
Telling us more about the documentary he further adds, "It's a Norwegian film for the festival. The story revolves around musicians and their journey and I'm reading scripts for the same. People have come down for the shoot and will soon start the shooting of the film."
Actor Raj Singh Arora has replaced Vineet Raina in the show, so when we quizzed him about if he has ever met Raj Singh Arora, Vineet says, "Who is Raj Singh Arora, sorry I don't know him, I will Google and see him. But I with all the best to Ekta Kapoor and her on-going show Ye Hain Mohabattein."
Well, Vineet we wish that you come back soon on TV!
