Shoaib Ibrahim on being ousted from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai audition

In 2007 or 2008, Shoaib Ibrahim auditioned for one of the longest-running TV serials, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. However, he was ousted from the audition. 

He said, “Pehla audition maine diya tha Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai Ka 2008 main. Mujhe auditon room se bahar nikal diya gaya tha, us waqt mujhe bohot hurt huya tha (I gave my first audition for Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai in 2008, and I was thrown out of the audition room. I was very hurt at that time).”

Further, he added that he took that rejection personally. “Wo maine bohot dil pe liya, and us waqt maine soch liya kuch bhi ho, papa se bhi main bolta tha, main engineering karunga aur Mumbai main job karunga, waha pe struggle karunga (I took that to heart and at that time, I decided, and I told my father also, no matter what happens, I will complete engineering and get a job in Mumbai, I will struggle there),” stated the Sasural Simar Ka actor.
