Hina Khan, who rose to fame with ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ finally left the show after eight years of association. This news came as a shock to everyone as no one was expecting such a huge surprise from the popular and loved actress. The actress in a recent interview, said that the entire schedule was badly affecting her health. Few days back, the actress was down with dengue and also suffered from a Kidney stones problem.

In an interview, she said, “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.” She further even added saying that, “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.”

Few days back, there was a buzz which stated that Hina has problems with her co-stars, but she denied those allegations and was quoted saying, “It was a show that gave me everything I have in life. I formed bonds that will last forever. In the past few days, my co-stars haven’t been looking at me [directly], because if we make eye contact, we will start crying. It has been a sweet ending for me.”

She even said that it was difficult for her to end the eight years long association and said, “I broke Tulsi’s (a character from Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi) record of being the lead on a show for the longest time- and none of the actors in the current scenario on TV, have reached the stage where I have. So, you see, fame comes with its fair share of issues.” It seems as if Hina’s die-hard fans are not able to accept the fact that she has already left the show. The makers of the show decided that Hina’s character in the show will come to an end and they planned an accident sequence. Akshara has fallen into a valley after getting hit by Karthik’s car. But still fans are hoping to see Hina Khan back on the show as Hina aka Akshara’s body has not been fought. It seems as if Hina has no plans of making a comeback on the show. She was even asked that there were rumors which were doing rounds on social media which stated that she had a problem with the show’s primary focus on Karthik and Naira’s love story. She said, “Not at all. There have been stories floating in this regard, but if there was any truth to them, I would have quit long back. Even when I finally put in my papers, I debated for a long time.” ALSO READ: Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai: Hina Khan aka Akshara confirms EXIT from show! Here’s what she said!

Hina recently said that she has been receiving some threatening calls from her fans telling her not to leave the show. Thought the diva was quiet overwhelmed by their love, but she even said that she was not at all encouraging such acts. “People are surprised. Fans have been angry and I have received threatening messages such as, ‘We will not watch the show from now on’ and ‘We will hurt ourselves [if you don’t return]’. If they don’t want to watch the show, it’s their prerogative, but I don’t appreciate the messages. In fact, one girl sent a video of her holding a knife saying she would hurt herself if I quit. That was scary. I will put up a video on social media telling fans not to take such drastic steps,” she said. Talking about her future projects, Hina told the daily, “Since the news of my exit from the show broke, I have been getting offers for other shows, but I want to relax for a few months…I am tired and want to rest. I don’t mind a weekly show but I will not do a daily soap.”

Hina even confirmed the news of her quitting the show and was quoted by ABP News show ‘Saas Bahu Aur Saazish’ team saying, “Yes, I am quitting the show this month. With heavy heart my journey in Yeh Rishta has come to an end. Ofcourse, I know people are emotionally attached but everything has a saturation point.” “I want to progress in my life. Many times I have said I am gonna part of this show but Rajan Sir has taught me that never say never,” Hina further added.

Well, we wish Hina all the luck in her life and look forward to see on back on small screen.
