Sanaya Irani to Tina Dutta and Digangana Suryavanshi – Here are which actresses said no to playing Naira and why
While Star Plus’s Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai started in 2009 with Hina Khan and Karan Mehra playing the lead roles Akshara and Naitik Singhania, the show now features Mohsin Khan’s Shivangi Joshi and Naira and Kartik Goenka as the main stars. But did you know that Shivangi was just one name in a list of other prominent women on TV to play the coveted role?
That is true. While we recently told you about the actors who said no to playing Kartik Goenka (Mohsin Khan) in YRKKH, today we tell you which actresses rejected the role of his wife Naira in the series.
From Sanaya Irani to Tina Dutta, Digangana Suryavanshi and others, here are which great ladies in the world of TV said no to playing Naira in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and why.
Sanaya Irani has captured our hearts with her talent in shows like Miley Jab Hum Tum, Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? and Rangrasiya. Not only were we impressed with his acting, but the creators of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai were also impressed at the time of the casting of Naira Goenka nÃ©e Singhania. According to TellyChakkar reports, the creators of YRKKH approached Sanaya, but the Ghost actress said no because she apparently didn’t want to play the second female role of Hina Khan.
Tina Dutta, who won our hearts as Ichcha in Uttaran, was also among the YRKKH makers’ picks to play Naira Goenka in the daily Star Plus. According to reports from the aforementioned publication, Tina was offered the role of Naira in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, but turned it down because she apparently did not want to appear in family dramas after the hit show Colors. .
Digangana Suryavanshi became a household name when she starred in Ek Veer Ki Ardaasâ¦ Veera from Star Plus. According to reports from the aforementioned publication, Digangana was approached to play Naira in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai but turned it down as she wanted to focus on her Bollywood career. Since the show and her participation in Bigg Boss 9, Ms. Suryavanshi has starred in a few B’wood films, including FryDay, Jalebi, and The Battle of Bhima Koregaon.
Ishita Dutta Sheth
Ishita Dutta Sheth, who rose to fame for her role as Poonam in Star Plus’s Ek Ghar Banaunga, was also approached by the creators of YRKKH. According to reports from the same publication, Ishita rejected the offer, but the underlying reason is still unknown.
Last on the list is Roopal Tyagi. The actress, who has appeared on shows like Hamari Ek Nayi Chhoti Si Zindagi and Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke, has reportedly expressed interest in playing Naira in YRKKH. But according to reports from the portal mentioned above, things did not go as desired due to its weight. She is currently playing in Colors’ Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki.
