Rebel with a cause

Vikrant Sabharwal, who was playing major roles in Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyaan and Maayka is out of both shows. Vikrant opposed Zee’s decision to sack the production house of Maayka and subsequently was ousted from the show. Maayka has been taken over by Dheeraj Kumar’s Creative Eye from Klassic production house. Vikrant’s other show, Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyaan, was anyways produced by Creative Eye, and consequently he’s been sacked from that too for his rebellious attitude.

However, Vikrant seems unperturbed by this sudden development in his life. He says, “I stood for Klassic Production house because I thought it was not ethical on channel’s part to give the show over to Creative Eye. I know, it’s all a part of a bigger conspiracy, and if you don’t fit in the system, you will be thrown out. Although, I was in the most vulnerable position, because I was doing Creative Eye’s Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyaan too, I stood for my beliefs. Consequently, I was out of Maayka and my association with the character of Jeet Khurana ended there.”

The actor approached actor’s association to complain. Consequently, Creative Eye was asked for an explanation by the association. He then got a call from Creative Eye and thought he was not ousted. But Vikrant’s misunderstood. He says, “They just sent me a letter that read like an obituary and said it had been a good experience working with me. I have been told that my character Kshitij has been replaced by someone else. ”

Vikrant believes that he should keep walking. He says, “I don’t want to continue this rubbish. I stood for what I felt was right but I have moved on. I have a couple of offers, but it’s too early to talk about them now.”

Ashish Kaul, vice-president of Zee Telefilms, said, “I guess this specific actor was bad-mouthing the channel. However, he being ousted from shows is a completely creative call. At the end of the day, the channel has to protect its interests.”
