'I accepted the role for my India-forums fans' - Abhay Vakil

Abhay Vakil fans have a reason to rejoice as the talented actor replaces Prashant Chawla in Teen Bahuraniyaan..

Replacement seems to be the new trend in television today at least in Teen Bahuraaniyan. After the replacement of the third bahu Manjeet (Manwa) by Kajal (Soni Singh), it is now the son’s turn to be replaced. Prashant Chawla who played Mahesh will now be replaced by Abhay Vakil.

On taking up this new role Abhay says, “The show is doing very well and right now Mahesh’s track is quite strong. That was one of the reasons I chose to accept the role. Another reason to accept the role was because my India-Forums fans wanted to see me in a Zee serial. So I thought this was a good opportunity for me.” But Prashant was accepted by the audience too, so will the audience accept Abhay as the new Mahesh now? Abhay quips, “Replacement happens in every serial. Even popular shows like Kyunki have their main characters like Tulsi and Mandira getting replaced. As an actor it is upto us to justify the character we are playing. To get a feel of Mahesh’s character, I have watched quite a few episodes of the show so that I can pick up his mannerisms.”

When contacted to know about his sudden exit, Prashant Chawla says, “I am quitting the show by the end of April. It was a sudden decision as my mom was unwell and she is currently in . She needs me more, so I decided to leave the show. The production people were very cooperative and accepted my decision very well.”

We sure hope the audience too appreciates this change!!!
