Parul Chauhan quits Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai
Talking exclusively to the TimesofIndia.com, the actress confirmed the news and said, “Yes, I have quit the show as I was not ready to play the role of a grandmother’s role at such an early stage of my career. I felt I won’t be able to do justice to the role. I spoke to Rajan sir (Producer) and thankfully he understood my concerns.”
Speaking about the same, she further told TOI that, “I am enjoying the break and not in any hurry to return to work. I went to stay with my parents at my house for few days. Doing a daily soap becomes very hectic, you end up getting no time for yourself. Hence, I am also working on body and taking care of myself. I am enjoying the break.”
Reports also suggests that show’s producer, Rajan Shahi, is highly upset with Parul. She gave a notice to the production team saying she wants to quit the show. Apparently, Shahi was unaware of this development and was too shocked to react. The leading daily asked Parul’s stance on it and she replied, “As for our relationship going sour, I have not felt anything of the sort. But, if he is upset or hurt with my decision, then I will surely have a word with him. Ek baap apni beti se bahut dino tak naraz nahin rahe paayenge. He has been there for me every step of the way in my life and I will make it up to him.”
On the professional front, Parul Chauhan became a household name after playing the lead role of ‘Ragini’ opposite Kinshuk Mahajan in ‘Bidaai’ & later featured in various popular shows like ‘Rishton Se Badi Pratha’, ‘Punar Vivah – Ek Nayi Umeed’, ‘Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi’ among others.
