Actor Karan Patel has confirmed that he will return to the popular soap Yeh Hai Mohabbatein to reprise the role of Raman Bhalla. The actor had quit earlier to take part in the reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi. Karan, who played the lead role in the serial was replaced by Chaitanya Choudhry.

Karan, in an interview with Times of India, confirmed the news. He said, "I don't know why people speculated that I quit the show. I was just away from it for a while because I was busy with something else. This show will always be an integral part of my career and life."

He also opened up on reports of the show ending in December. "I don't think so. Though we have been playing these characters for long, people's love and admiration for us haven't dipped. It means that I am doing something right. Playing Raman Bhalla will always be a matter of pride for me. If a few think that 'YHM' has run its course, they need to recheck their facts with those who think it should go on."

Later, Karan took to his Instagram account to share the good news with his fans confirming his much-awaited return. He posted a picture of himself in a pool. Karan captioned the image as: "Aa raha hu mai"
