"The year is ending on a very good note for me as my fans will see me all seven days! Monday to Friday on 'Qubool Hai' and over the weekend on my dance reality show ('Nach Baliye 6'). Karan (Singh Grover) has already wished me luck and I'm hoping that I can make a make a place in the hearts of the viewers also soon," he added.

The creative team from the production house 4 Lions and the channel were unanimous in selecting Raqesh as the lead opposite Zoya (Surbhi Jyoti) in the TV show.

"Raqesh is handsome and good-looking and he looks amazing with Zoya. The best and most important part is that he is known in the industry for his professionalism' We're glad that he has agreed to come on board," they said.

Raqesh will start shooting for the show soon and will be seen as Asad on "Qubool Hai" from the beginning of the New Year.

The channel had dropped Karan from the show two days ago following his "unprofessional behaviour".

So far there has been no comments from Karan on the same.
