Dr Rahul is proving to be a headache for the crew of Dill Mill Gaye and the only cure may be to kick him off the show

Mayank Anand aka Dr Rahul from Dill Mill Gaye may be given the boot for his high-handed ways on the sets. Reportedly, he ordered lunch worth Rs 17,000 and is known for throwing tantrums during the shoots.

As a result, the script may just take unexpected twists where Dr Rahul might get a bulawa by his mum.

Then he may just have to pack his bags and head off to the US in a hurry, thus cutting his character off the show with surgical precision.

The wound is deep, as the production house insists vehemently. Sources say, that Mayank has been asked to leave the show. According to a source from the production house, “Mayank was throwing tantrums on the sets. It was becoming very difficult for everyone to work with him.

Once, many artistes waited for four hours to shoot one scene with Mayank, but he did not show up and the production team was clueless about where he might be. Everyone was so upset that they complained about it to the producers Cinevista.”

The list of complaints doesn’t end here. Apparently, Mayank is blissfully unaware of the recession and decided to splurge on a lunch, while passing on a fat bill to the production house. The source added, “Once he wanted to eat food from outside.

This lunch was worth Rs 17,000, (meant for other people on the sets as well). The producer paid for his expensive lunch. At times, actors can order food from outside, but there is a limit. These are only two incidents, but there are many more like this.”

Mayank admits that he is leaving the show, but denies there are any rifts between the production house and him. He said, “Who told you this? I am leaving, but there is no problem with the other artistes or the production house.

Initially when I joined Dill Mill Gaye, my role was for four months only. The role picked up and was liked by Cinevista, so they increased it. I asked them to give me a break as acting is not the only thing I do. Things did not work out, so I am leaving.”

Siddharth Malhotra, Producer, Cinevista is reasonably diplomatic about the issue. He said that they had a long discussion, but he was unable to meet Mayank’s demands.

He concludes, “We have still not written the script for next week’s episode. We will try and come to a mutually beneficial conclusion but if things do not work out, then I hope that Mayank leaves the show on an amicable note.”
