Hina Khan aka Akshara finally walked out of the popular daily soap, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, after eight years of association with the show. The makers of the show chose the age-old tradition of killing the character instead of giving the fans of the show some sensible reason for the exit of their favorite star. Hina’s character Akshara falls into a valley after getting hit by Karthik’s car who was driving under the influence of alcohol.
In an interview with a website, she confirmed saying, “It was taking a toll on my health. Of late, I was down with dengue and kidney stones. I want a break for 2-3 months, the producer and the channel suggested that I go on a sabbatical and then come back, lekin ab nahi, bahut monotonous ho gaya tha. They had shown me in every character and shade, Akshara’s journey was over. So yeah, I am still shooting for it, a few scenes which will later be shown in flashback mode. But I am not coming back to Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai for sure. I would like to return and do something different and fresh.”
But some shocked and disheartened fans are going overboard to express their sorrow. “Some of them have threatened to kill themselves. One of them even sent me a video with this threat. It’s scary. Naa chahte hue bhi you tend to think that you’re responsible for all this, jabki actually yeh nahin hai,” informed Hina.
We just hope, Hina’s fans take her advice and refrain from doing anything foolish to express their love for the actor. Also, the actor will be back soon in a new role. She has left the show only to explore herself as an actor. “I’m open to comedy, I’m open to all the genres, I really want to try something new,” said Hina.
