Actor Rishi Dev will replace actor Rohan Mehra as Naksh in popular soap opera “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai”.

Rohan is currently seen as a contestant on “Bigg Boss 10”.

The character of Naksh was shown to have gone on a trek. But he will be seen returning to his house.

The show will take a six months’ leap forward, after which the entire family will be seen gearing up for Naira (Shivangi Joshi) and Kartik’s (Mohsin Khan) engagement ceremony.

“Being a part of the show that is an out and out audience favourite, feels amazing. ‘Yeh Rishta…’ as a show, is a brand in itself. I am really excited about entering the show,” Rishi said in a statement.

“Naksh, as a character, is extremely popular amongst the audiences and I really wish to do justice to the character and live up to the audience expectations. I am really looking forward to playing Naksh,” he added.

“Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” is aired on Star Plus.
