In the serial Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, whenever Raman and Ishita Bhalla are in legal trouble, their lawyer Pathak came to their rescue. The character of Pathak was essayed by Neel Motwani from the start.
However, it seems that Neel has quit Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. Yes, this is the reason why you do not see Pathak in the serial these days.
Neel Motwani was not Happy with His Character
Pathak was an integral member of the Bhalla family though he was just a lawyer. He had small but important role in the serial. However, with each passing day his screen space reduced. So, post the leap, Neel was not at all happy with the way his character was shaping up. He was not content with his role as it is the role of Pathak had no meat in it. All he did was move here and there whenever Ishita and Raman faced issues with each other.
So, when Neel mentioned the same to the production house they amicably decided to part their ways. This is the reason why we see that Pathak is not in the show.
Avdeep Sidhu is the New Man
The makers didn’t replace Pathak in the serial. Instead, they have shown that Pathak is away in Singapore. However, Pathak has sent a replacement to solve Raman and Ishita’s problems and this new guy is none other than Avdeep Sidhu. Avdeep is a newbie who is also seen in &TV’s Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum as Yugant.

Will Neel Motwani Make a Comeback on Yeh Hai Mohabbatein?
Neel left Kumkum Bhagya too when he had nothing much stored in the serial and now he has quit Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. The actor will mostly not return to the show after all the team and him have parted ways. However, in case his role gets meatier he might return not with Yeh Hai Mohabbatein but with another Balaji drama.
When he was buzzed about his exit, this is what he said –
“Yes, I am no more part of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. It was indeed one great journey with the team and I will miss them all. But as an actor, you sometime need to take decisions to satisfy your creative instincts rather than just being part of a project for namesake. I wish the team great luck ahead.”
We wish you all the best too Neel!
