Yes! It might be shocking for some, but Ishaqbaaz actor was not the primary choice to essay the character of business tycoon Ram Kapoor.

According to BollywoodLife, Ekta Kapoor planned on casting Iqbal Khan as the first choice to play Ram in Bade Achhe Lagte Hain 2. However, things didn’t work out. Talking about the same in a recent interview, the Dil Se Dil Tak actor said that while he was in talks with the makers of BALH 2, things didn’t work out due to budget issues.



Mehta further contended that due to dropping viewership on TV, the show makers are slashing budgets. With that, producers were forced to look for actors with low cost. He said that whenever initiating a discussion for a role, he straight away asks for the budget so that things are clear right from the start. 

Iqbal Khan, who was tipped to play Mr Bajaj in Kausautii Zindagii Kay, also said that while coming down to 80% of what you expect is okay, but settling for a budget below that is a strict ‘no-no’ for him. 



The buzz around Bade Achhe Lagte Hain 2 doesn’t seem to end now. However, that wasn't the case always, there have been reports that the show will be taken off air due to low TRPs. Although Ram Kapoor and Priya Sood’s love story finally emerged, and the show has grabbed the audience’s attention.
