Hina Khan and Karan Mehra became household names with Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. The actors, who played the roles of Akshara and Naitik, are still considered an epic jodi. After their exit, Mohsin Khan and Shivangi Joshi led the show. Recently, the show completed 3,000 episodes and producer Rajan Shahi had shared a special video, which featured the team. Although fans congratulated him and the team, they were disappointed the video did not even have a single picture of Hina Khan or Karan Mehra's, who were part of more than 2,000 episodes and were considered as pillars of the show.
While Hina Khan was gracious and wished the team on the milestone, fans were furious with the makers. The actress commented on Pooja Joshi's post, "Many congratulations to the team 👏👏." - (sic). When Rajan Shahi was asked about him not crediting Hina and Karan for the success of the show, he made a shocking comment.
Rajan Shahi Says…
Rajan told Pinkvilla, "If you ask anyone who remotely knows me, they will tell that I speak my mind. I am also someone who is very appreciative of my team members. When there is someone to appreciate, I do it. Today, I am honestly saying that appreciating them makes me happy."
‘If I Don't Talk About Something, There Is A Reason’
"I have done it in the past and if I don't talk about something, there is a reason. The 150 people in my unit really know the reason why. I really want to keep the respect and dignity and that is why I don't speak. What matters is what the 150 people who work with me think of me and I think right now, it is the time to be happy." Well, this indeed is a shocking statement.
