Only a while ago, we reported about how actor Randeep Rai was quite irked with the makers of Sab TV's show Hero - Gayab Mode On which you can read here. The report stated how Rai was sealed to be a part of the show in one way but was left hanging for a long time before bring rejected in the end and replaced two days before the shoot.
This led to a lot of trolling for Abhishek Nigam, who currently plays the lead in the show. Responding to that himself now in an interview with ETimes TV, Nigam said, "I too got a call from the makers of Hero before the lockdown asking me to send them an audition clip. After I had sent them, they liked my work. I always wanted to do this show. When I had auditioned for this show, I never knew what the show was and even its title. But after auditioning when I didn't get any call from the makers, I though that I hadn't been selected for it. Not many people know that I had given Hero's audition thinking it to be the last audition of my life because if this was not happening I would have left acting and pursued my masters in law."
He added, "When I saw the promo of the show, I got to know that Randeep is doing the show. I didn't feel much at that point in time, because this is all a part of the industry. Mere saath bhi aisa ho chuka hai. In fact, it has happened with me around three to four times, that I have been finalized to play a character but then I didn't get the role. But it is all up to the makers to finalize the actor in a role. They have this creative liberty to choose who is best for their show. It is fair on their part. At the same time, I feel Randeep is a fantastic actor. I have seen him in Yeh Unn Dinon Ki Baat Hai. He would have done complete justice to my role in the show. I am nobody to judge him."
