Rohan Mehra and Kanchi Singh who play Naksh and Gayatri in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai are not getting enough screen-time because they’re dating in real life! Yep, the actors who play cousins on-screen have been repeatedly warned by Star Plus to tone down in their off-screen shenanigans as the audience won’t be able to accept a couple play cousins on screen. Here’s what a source close to Spotboye.com has to say about this strange situation –
The channel had repeatedly hinted to Rohan and Kanchi that they should be a little more secretive about their relationship. They play cousins on screen and most daily soap viewers are extremely sensitive and conservative about image. So, the more Rohan and Kanchi become open about their feelings, the more it will clash with their on-screen image of siblings. Obviously, the channel did not like it. Whenever the duo got candid during interviews, the channel would warn them. But they took it lightly and finally, the channel has decided to sideline their track.
Apparently, the channel is now planning to give prominence to the track of Naira (Shivangi Joshi), Naksh’s sister. Wow!
