Remember Rakhi Sawant? Of course you do. But do you also remember her ex-boyfriend, Abhishek Awashti? He was Rakhi’s partner for the dance reality show Nach Baliye, where they were the first runners up. Popular TV couple Aamir Ali and Sanjeeda Shaikh had beaten them, and Rakhi, as per usual, had created quite a scene at the announcement of the results. Good times.
Anyway, she and Abhishek didn’t last that long and they soon parted ways. After that, not much was known about him, but it looks his career has got a fresh lease of life. As per a report on Mid-Day, Abhishek has been roped in to play the role of Nandi in Mahakali: Anth Hi Aarambh Hai. The same show which lost two of its actors and a spotboy to a road accident last month. Abhishek will be replacing the late Arijit Lavania. Earlier, Manish Bishla had stepped in for the late Gagan Kang, who played Lord Indra.
