Normally you hear cases of female actors getting insecure about each other. This is the first time we are getting a hint that Star Plus fantasy show male lead Harsh Rajput did not like the attention shifting to Malhar Pandya, who had an on-screen romantic equation with Harsh (character name Ansh) on mom, played by Mona Lisa.
Ever since Malhar’s character was killed in the show a few days back, the above buzz has gained credence, with some fans going to the extent of blaming Harsh for Malhar’s exit from the show.
Another fly on the wall quipped that Harsh felt overawed by the better built Malhar. Also, the sizzling chemistry between Malhar and Mona Lisa was making Harsh further hot under the collar.
In the interests of fair play, we reached out to Harsh directly, who laughed at the above insinuation, saying, “Why should I, who is the lead, be insecure about anybody. As an actor, I am only competing with myself and nobody else.”
“Also, as per our storyboard, Angad was in a relationship with my mother Mohana and not my love interest Piya (Niyati Fatnani), so what you say is a non-starter.”
Here, our sources deny any such ulterior motive, adding that Malhar’s character had a logical end and that the team was happy with his work.
We tried to reach both Malhar and producer Gul Khan, but could not get through to them.
