Have you ever wondered—what makes a telly show superhit? Is it the star cast or is it the plot? In the last couple of years, there have been numerous cases in which a lead actress moved on from the popular daily soap she starred in. However, the show went on without a hitch!
A lot of times, the makers get tired of their actors’ unprofessionalism and other times, their leads get frustrated with their roles. Stardom is a tricky path to tread on and in the end, everyone picks their path.
We’ve listed down some stars who left popular television mid-way for a variety of reasons. Check it out!
When Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi 3 was launched, everyone was excited to see Erica Fernandes as Sonakshi Bose once again! As the show progressed, the actress grew dissatisfied with the way her character shaped up. Recently, she announced her decision to quit and explained her stance. In a detailed note, she explained her reasons. A part of the same reads, “To start with I would like to thank everyone who loved Kuch rang right from its conception. The immense love we were showered with was heart touching. Due to various reasons when the show had to go off air the first time, the power n love from the very same Kuch rang family pulled us back once again on screen nearly after a month of it going off-air. Because of the very same Kuch rang family we were more than thrilled to come back once again with so much enthusiasm (sic)”
Before she was an iconic TV vamp Komolika, she was the quintessential bahu named Akshara Singhania in the serial Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. The actress was associated with the show for over 8 years but in 2017 she quit the show. Hina spoke about her decision in an interview and said, “I was part of the show for eight long years. It became monotonous and therefore I had to move out. My character had done all that she could and there wasn’t anything new left to do”
Who can ever forget the OG Gopi bahu? Her scenes from the daily soap Saath Nibhaana Saathiya have birthed millions of memes and she is still ruling the ‘Gram! As shocking as it sounds, Gia was actually replaced overnight by the makers! In an interview, she shared, “I did not leave the show because I wanted to take part in the reality series. My producer was torturing me. So I chose to leave. The buzz that I won’t be allowed to work on any other show is a rumour. No one else should have any problem.” It was quite a scandal at the time.
Jyoti Sharma and her co-star Pranav Misshra slammed their show Aisi Deewangi Dekhi Nahi Kahi’s makers in many explosive interviews. The actress alleged that she had to work for 18 hours a day! In an interview, she said, “There would be no food, tea or even water during these extended hours. Even though it would get late, they never checked on how I was commuting alone at that hour. There have also been times when I have been called back mid-way, to shoot.”
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah star Disha Vakani left the show in 2017. She has not returned to the show since! Over the years, we have been waiting for her comeback but the actress has not commented on it. Here’s hoping she graces our TV screens soon!
