Wondering why he is second time lucky? Rushad was the original choice to play Iqbal Khan's elder brother in Sangini however bad luck struck and Rushad was down with Malaria exactly when the outdoor shoot for the show began. This left the production house with no choice but to replace him. Harsh Khurana later bagged the same role. Now destiny smile once again on Rushad as he gets the same role yet again.
Our Source tells us "Harsh Khurana is busy with a film, and this prompted the production house to get back their original choice to play Iqbal brother."
In Rang Badalti Odhani play Akshay which was till now played by Sahil Anand. When contacted Rushad Rana confirmed the reason for a double treat and said " yes I am doing both the show my character is very positive, mature. Akshay is a guy who loves his wife a lot. The coming track will focused on both on them. The character I play in Sangini is complexly contrasted; I play a guy who is calculate, money minded and strict".
Sahil Anand who plays the negative lead in Zee TV's Mera Naam Karegi Roshan "Since I am playing a prominent role in Mera Naam Karegi Roshan I felt that I couldn't do justice to both the show. Hence I decided to quit Odhani.
As for Rushad, we are sure that he would enjoy his double treat.
