After enough hide-and-seek about the exit of Hina Khan, we got confirmation from the channel that the actor who plays Akshara has officially quit Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. She will be shooting for the show only till this month’s end. The only thing left for the script writers is to decide how they are going to show her exit. Will they follow the age-old technique of killing the character, or have a justified exit? But that’s not all.
The show is set to get a new face. Actor Parul Chauhan better known as Ragini from Bidaai, will join the cast and will begin shooting for her part in the coming days, said our sources in the channel.
After a season of quitting Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, looks like now the popular show is on the verge of a revamp. That’s the most evident move left for its makers after its lead pair for eight years bid adieu to the show. After Karan Mehra aka Naitik quit the show, his onscreen son Rohan Mehra who played Naksh also took a break. Currently, both of them are locked up inside the Bigg Boss 10 house. And before we could breathe, news began coming from its sets that even lead actor Hina Khan who plays Akshara has left the show.
Hina’s reasons for quitting were her ever decreasing screen time and focus being shifted on the love track of Naira and Karthik. And now that Hina has left the show, Parul has stepped in, but not as a replacement. Parul will play the step-mom of Karthik. This will be very different from what she has done till date. The character will be “an over-ambitious, money-loving mother”. We also hear that actor Sandeep Rajora has been roped in to play the role of Karthik’s father.
If you thought eight years was a long run for a show and it was high time it was wrapped, the makers of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai are weaving a completely new track, with a new love angle and new characters with shades of grey. After all, it’s all in the same family for this show.
