Surbhi Jyoti, who played the famous Zoya Farooqui on the show Qubool Hai acting alongside Karan Singh Grover. Their onscreen characters Asad and Zoya were such a spectacular success and the fans went gaga over them. But after nearly a year on the show Karan lef the show and was replaced by Raqesh Vashisht.
The audience slowly started accepting this pair, though they created a lot of resistance in the beginning. But with the makers of the show failing to come up with interesting story to go with the characters, the show failed to get back into the run. Thus forcing the makers to decide on an alternative.
The show's continuing drop in ratings got them to start over again. The show took a 20 year leap and so did the story and the characters. Asad and Zoya were killed and thus ended the story about them. With AsYa's end Raqesh Vashisht's role to came to an end.
What was more interesting is that Surbhi Jyoti who played Zoya with Karan Singh Grover for almost an year missed Raqesh more, with whom she acted for a couple of months. When asked if she missed Karan when he left the show, she replied saying, "Not exactly; he was more of a teacher than a friend. I learnt a lot about acting and TV shows from Karan. But I miss Raqesh more."
Currently the show, Qubool Hai, is starring Surbhi Jyoti and Karanvir Bohra, post leap, and is written and directed by Gul Khan.
