MUMBAI: Even as Romi (Aly Goni) is happy to get married to Sarika in “Yeh Hai Mohabbatein”, the actor seems to be having a difficult time off-screen.

According to reports, Aly — being a Kashmiri Muslim — is finding it extremely difficult to get a house on rent in Mumbai.

Although it has been a couple of years since Aly moved to the city, the hunk has not been able to rent a house as he is from Kashmir. He has been staying with his cousin ever since he shifted to Mumbai.

Disappointed at the discrimination, Aly told The Times of India: “I am sure every house has a TV and people watch us for entertainment. So why is it so difficult for an actor to rent a flat in Mumbai? Is it a crime to be born in Kashmir?

“We have the same documents, have the same passport, same voter card and same pan card. Then why do we have to face this discrimination? Not letting someone rent a house anywhere in the country is undemocratic. I am heartbroken that I am looked down upon as a threat to the society just because I am a Kashmiri Muslim.” added the popular actor.

Meanwhile, in “Yeh Hai Mohabbatein”, it’s celebration time for Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi) and others as they have decided to welcome Vandita’s (Shruti Bapna) newborn baby with a grand celebration.

Further, Ishita and Raman (Karan Patel) along with the entire Bhalla family will soon start preparing for Romi and Sarika’s wedding. The event will be a grand one and will include pre-wedding ceremonies such as sangeet and mehendi. –IB Times
