When you’re in entertainment industry, expect some overnight replacements. But for Hiten Tejwani, things have been always working in his favour. Being the face of Indian television, the 44-year-old actor had never expected that he would be replaced overnight ever in his life. It came to us as a shocker when the seasoned actor Hiten Tejwani was replaced in the comedy show Namune. And another surprising fact is that he was not even informed about it.
While speaking to a leading daily Hiten revealed, “So far, I have replaced actors, but this is the first time I have been replaced without intimation. I have been a part of this industry and such things are quite common. I shot for four days for the pilot of the show. I did a lot of prep for it, as this was also the first time I was venturing into comedy. It’s not an easy genre. It takes effort to get into the skin of the character. I was very excited about the project, but now, what can I say?”
He also added, “After the look test was done, I was wondering what happened, as there was no communication from their end. So, when the shooting date came near, I got in touch with someone I knew in the production team and the person was shocked that I wasn’t informed about the development. He broke the news to me that I had been replaced.”
As per the reports, Hiten Tejwani will be seen in Abhishek Varman’s Kalank, which stars Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha. He will be playing the role of a man who works in Sanjay’s company.
