Raqesh Vashisth replaces Karan Singh Grover in 'Qubool Hai'
New Delhi: Raqesh Vashisth is all set to play the lead in 'Qubool Hai' after Karan Singh Grover was asked to leave the show for his alleged unprofessional behaviour.

"The year is ending on a very good note for me as my fans will see me all seven days! Karan (Singh Grover) has already wished me luck and I'm hoping that I can make a make a place in the hearts of the viewers also soon," Raqesh said in a statement.
The creative team from the production house 4 Lions and the channel were unanimous in selecting Raqesh as the lead opposite Zoya (Surbhi Jyoti) in the daily soap.
"He is handsome and good-looking and he looks amazing with Zoya. The best and most important part is that he is known in the industry for his professionalism. We're glad that he has agreed to come on board," they said.
Raqesh will be seen in the new role from the beginning of the New Year.
