Is Karan Singh Grover stage-managing his popularity?

Select websites and media have been praising Karan Singh Grover to unprecedented heights ever since the television actor exited from the popular Zee TV show Qubool Hai.

His fans are said to be ‘demanding’ Karan’s “comeback” on the show, while constantly running down Raqesh Vashisth who has taken on Karan’s place as the character of Asad in the daily soap.

Even the lead actress Surbhi Jyoti who plays Zoya is caught up in this controversial whirlwind. The character-couple widely known as Asya, are said to have had better chemistry when Karan was part of the show.

But strangely, the entire media does not seem affected by Karan’s exit. It’s only a section of the media that is going on and on about this. Moreover, if one carefully marks, certain groups in social media claiming to be die-hard fans of the Grover boy are suddenly being abusive towards the show as well as the channel and threatening of bans and boycotts if he is not brought back on the show.

This smacks of a coordinated PR exercise. To find out if it could really be a genuine hue and cry from Karan’s fans or a fabricated pressure-tactic on the channel, we asked Bollywood’s only PR guru Dale Bhagwagar about what he felt.

“Going by Karan’s popularity on the show, I don’t think he requires to engineer support after such a sudden exit,” notes the publicist. “However, the fact that only certain web and print media have been repeatedly talking about this, is quite strange,” Dale admits.

“I wonder why the new guy (Raqesh) in Qubool Hai is being continuously targeted by select media,” Dale wrote on his Twitter later. Whatever be the case, after these remarks from the PR guru himself, the media could now get closer on the heels about uncovering the truth.

The preasure from fans not accepting the new guy is difinately there as the is a team called Mission Justice for Karan who are have and asre working hard to bring him back or get ansd apology from the channel in regards to him being maligned.

We are fighting for Karans justice.Because the channel Zee is purposefully defamed him by calling him unproffessional and drunkard.But in truth he is a very much professional and dedicated actor and a down to earth personality.His co actors,his directors,the people in the sets are also declared that he is a good person and very proffessional.He has no tantrums at all.The production house had aslo no issue with him.Only Zee tv had problem with him.At the time of Sacking of Karan he was on medical leave.That guy has some health issues it needs immediate medical attention.He worked in show after completed his contract cause he was willing to give his character and the show a proper
    end.He is innocent at this issue.ZEE tv done this to Gurmeet chowdary also.No actors are some channels slave.They are human beings and they had their own personal matters.No body has the right to interfier anybody’s personal life.And in the case of Raqesh this man doesnt know the ‘A’ of acting. He ruined our beloved Asad by all means.And he is such an arrogant and rude guy that he questioned our upbringing.He had no manners at all.The hatred towards Raqesh is deserved for him.Its because his attitude only.We dont have any personal issues with Mr raqesh.But he crossed all his limit.We the viewers are watching the show not the channel.So its our right to get what we demmand.And ZEE& ph defamed Muslim society by all means showing all cheapness in this show.They showed acccomment_IDental nikah,batchelor party ,drinking,and so many issues it does nt exist in Islam.They malignating a relegion to its core.And the character Asad had a 360 degree change after the replacement.We cant accept this.We want justice.We want Karan back in Qh as our beloved Asad and a proper end of this show.If you people are doing this article for justice and truth then pls help us.We will be more thank ful to you.Hope we get a good news from you

  3. In response to the fabricated garbage comment_approved above: Only select websites and media report with honesty and integrity, Karan Singh Grover’s fan aren’t sacomment_ID to be demanding his comeback, we are demanding his comeback on Qubool Hai.

    Fan aren’t “running down”, Raqesh Vashisth, this comment_content_IDiotic specimen should not be presented to the public, but rather thought the basic principles of civilization, humanity and public relations.

    AsYa aren’t sacomment_ID to have better chemistry when KSG was a part of the show, they had brilliant chemistry. The entire media isn’t affected by KSG’s exist due to propaganda at its pinnacle, and it’s obvious the media that reports on the fiasco abcomment_IDes by law, regulation and standards set out for media organizations.

    On the international platform the blatancy and ignorance of certain media is beyond comprehension. I live in a democratic state where freedom of the media is a legal right and I am appalled by Indian media, which provcomment_IDe fortification to entities due to their magnitude rather than upholding integrity, law and standards.

    If this news portal was credible, research would have been conducted on the content of this article before having it copied, pasted and comment_approved, on the note of bans and boycotts, QH has done nothing but blatantly disregard, rcomment_IDicule and make a mockery of a religion to an eminent degree.

    The authenticity of the fans “hue and cry” can be proved relatively easily, as every correspondence sent to ZEE TV and 4Lions Films has also been forwarded to the different media as proof to indicate fans are sending correspondences, which must now be running in thousands. Yet the same media choose to ignore correspondences from fan but never fail to publish content on ZEE TV and Qubool Hai.

    I personally have proof of an electronic response from a communications consultant at ZEEL who promised to have my correspondence which questions ZEEL lack of corporate social responsibility forwarded to their public relations and content department, yet I have not received a favorable outcome to comment_date.

    Rightly stated, it is quite strange only certain media are reporting on this issue, as this is nothing but propaganda in favor of ZEE TV. In conclusion to the closing statements of this article, Mr Vashisth is been targeted due to the fact that every time he makes a public statement and issue’s dense interviews all he does is spew garbage and comment_content_IDiocy, this guy redefines professionalism and civilization, and this is by no means a compliment.

    A professional allows their work to speak for them, this guy’s work isn’t able to, so every opportunity he obtains he spreads his stupcomment_IDity, infuriating the fans further. I certainly hope the media remember the laws and standards they are bounded to and are required to follow, thus uncovering the truth.

    I hope this comment_content answers the many questions raised.
