SSRS: line chart is not displaying during integration in live server

Scenario: I created one SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services) report which was containing few line charts. During quality check of these reports, it was observed that some graphs were not displaying which were containing less or no data.

We did some analysis on this and observed that an unwanted style sheet has been applied into this chart, which is affecting visibility of the graph.

This style sheet was containing the following properties -
