Mohnish Behl backed out from Namak Haram

It’s a no show for Mohnish Behl. He backed out from TV serial Namak Haram because he wasn’t willing to shoot intimate scenes with lead actress Narayani Shastri. He felt his fans wouldn’t accept it, so after shooting for a day, he opted out.To find out the truth we contacted Mohnish who said, “I was not convinced by the tone of the entire show. Also it didn’t go well with my image. After doing work like Hum Saath Saath Hai, Sanjeevani and Hum Aapke Hain Kaun..?, I think my audience wouldn’t have appreciated me in a role like this. That’s the reason I opted out of the show. In fact I even told Meesha Gautam, creative director and producer of the show, that I was not informed about those sequences.I have a certain body of work and I wanted to do stuff which the entire family can watch together with their children.”

Did Mohnish’s decision hamper the show? Meesha said, “Since Mohnish was not comfortable, we replaced him with Sachin Tyagi. The story is about a couple who has been married for around five years and shares much intimacy. Mohnish thought that the intimacy was not required. There are no ill feelings. We have done some wonderful work in the past like Devi and Ek Ladki Anjaani Si.”
