Exchange of Roles – Karan Arjun of Arjun – Har Yug Mein Aayega Ek and Shaleen Asad of Qubool Hai?


No it is not a rumour and no it is not real. This is a what if situation. We have two men who play roles of guys who are stoic, uncommunicative and reticent. There are women in their lives who try to bring them out of their shell. Asad Ahmed Khan (Karan Singh Grover) and ACP Arjun Suryakant Rawte (Shaleen Malhotra) play their parts beautifully. Or so we think.

Ok, so our imagination is a little wild (may be more than wild) however, in a conversation with Karan Singh Grover, a sudden thought struck us that if for some reason, Karan Singh Grover were to play Arjun Suryakant Rawte for a day and vice versa for Shaleen Malhotra how would that be?
Both men have pain in their lives. Both men talk very little. Both men have women in their lives who are chirpy and boisterous. Would these two actors find it difficult to play the other’s role? Is it unimaginable to see Shaleen in Asad’s role and the other way around? Perhaps. Perhaps not. We shall never know.

However, it struck as an interesting scenario to share with you all viewers and no we are not going to have the exchange happen. Yes, we like Asad the way he is played by Karan Singh Grover and Arjun played by Shaleen Malhotra. So, then why are we talking about it?
The basic reason is to ask you, if you have ever envisioned anyone in a role that may or may not seem like the perfect match. We know, you the viewers recently had loads of suggestions about who should play Ayaan Ahmed Khan. So, the hypothetical question is, if Asad was to be played by Shaleen, would Asad then be expounding words like Samjhe ya Samjhaoun and if Karan was to play Arjun, would he say, woh Bechari nahi hai?

What mannerisms of Shaleen would you see in Asad and What about Karan would you see in Arjun?
Lets Talk.
While you watch Qubool Hai every Monday to Friday on Zee Tv at 9:30pm and Arjun – Har Yug Mein Aayega Ek every weekend on Star Plus at 8pm, would you imagine anyone else doing the roles the actors are doing right now; to bring alive the characters of Asad Ahmed Khan and ACP Arjun Suryakant Rawte alive for you with any other face?
