Popular television actor Karan Patel, who plays the lead role of Raman on "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein," gave tiny heart attacks to his millions of fans worldwide on Thursday, when in a series of tweets he expressed his disappointment with the show and hinted at a possible exit. His tweets were followed by a hue and cry from the show's ardent fans who dreaded the actor is ending his journey in "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein."
But Karan was quick enough to clarify his tweets and said that he was very much a part of the show and had no plans to quit. Karan tweeted: "I was and will always be a part of #YehHaiMohabbatein ... Its inseparable from me. I did not mean to give out the message that im quitting!"
Apparently, the entire cast of "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" is unhappy with the production team owing to issues with their contract renewals. The actor was reportedly frustrated and hence was using his popularity to send across the message to the production team.
"Karan and the entire cast at YHM are very unhappy with the way the production people have treated them when it comes to contract renewals. It's been due since December 2015. Imagine if someone like Karan, hero of such a popular show, is kept hanging in the air. His tweets reflect his frustration and anger," a source told Tellychakkar.com.
"Apart from that, he has also been facing issues at the creative level (thus the second tweet). Right now the track is focussing only on Shagun (Anita Hassanandani) and Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi), and he has not much to do. Yesterday, Karan had a meeting with the creative team and it did not end on a good note. He was visibly upset. The tweets are a culmination of his distress," the source continued. "He has had it. He is using his popularity and fan base to send across a message to the production people. He wants them to treat him better," concluded the source.
Meanwhile, fans of "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" have also been expressing their disappointment on Twitter with lack of romantic moments shared between their favourite couple Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi) and Raman. The on-going track is more focused on other issues and characters, such as Pihu's (Ruhaanika Dhawan) custody and Shagun (Anita Hassanandani) turning negative, thereby leaving little screen space for the lead pair.
