Karan Mehra, who played the role of Naitik is rumored to make a comeback in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Apparently, Karan met the show’s producer Rajan Shahi at an awards function and there are chances the actor will make a comeback to the show. However, the actor has denied this news.
"I don't know from where this news is coming but no such discussion has taken place with me. I am also trying to figure out why these kinds of rumors are being reported,” Karan said in a statement.
When questioned if he will take up the elderly character if producer Rajan Shahi approaches him? To which he replied, "This was not the case even when I left the show three years back. And of course, the show has also gone way ahead in storyline. So, I don't see myself in that character anymore. I don't even see any relevance to the character. I think it will be better to do a new thing with him (Rajan Shahi) than doing the same old character. The story is already progressed to the life of Naira (Shivangi Joshi), Kartik (Mohsin Khan) life. Getting me to play Dadji now, is something I don't see myself doing. Logically as well, it will be quite a jerk in the storyline and I don't think it will work in the flavor of the show. It will be nice to work on a new project with Rajan ji.”
Karan Mehra was last seen in a cameo in Ek Bhram Sarvagun Sampanna starring Shrenu Parikh and Zain Imam in the lead roles.
