Television actor Vishal Singh, who joined the Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai team as Naitik, can't stop praising his co-star and lead actress Hina Khan aka Akshara.

The actor, who replaced hugely popular Karan Mehra on the show, said that his on-screen wife Hina has been helping him in understanding his character.

"Hina is an extremely warm person. She was very cooperative and she even gave me insights on how to be during the scenes with Akshara and Naitik," Vishal was quoted as saying by Indo-Asian News Service (IANS).

"We exchanged a lot of tips and valuable nuances about Naitik's character. It didn't feel like I was shooting with this team for the first time. It felt like home," he added.

Vishal recently shot for a romantic sequence with Hina in Switzerland. Talking about his experience shooting with the Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai team in the beautiful country, Vishal said: "Shooting in Switzerland was a surreal experience. Having said that, the entire cast was extremely warm and I was welcomed very well on board. I had a blast with the team."

Hina has also been in the news for the wrong reasons. The actress was said to have been throwing starry tantrums on the sets. Rumour had it that the actress was not happy with the show's focus shifting towards the young actors and wanted the makers to sideline the younger actors and their ongoing love story, and put her in the limelight once again.

However, the actress put an end to all the rumours when she attended the 2,200 episode completion party of her show. Hina and producer Rajan Shahi refuted the rumours and said that they were baseless.
