Hiten Tejwani and Gauri Pradhan will bow out of "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi" in style as their screen characters Karan and Nandini, respectively, will die at the end of an hour-long Janmashtami special episode to be aired next Tuesday. The two will jump to death in a valley in Varanasi, holding hands the same way as Kamal Hassan and Rathi Agnihotri had done in hit film "Ek Duje Ke Liye". The real life couple has been playing husband and wife in the serial for quite a few years now.
A close source revealed: "They will die holding each other's hands and the scene has been shot beautifully. Tanya will be the one responsible for Karan and Nandini reaching Varanasi as she doesn't like Nandini's presence in Karan's life. The whole plot revolves around the Tanya-Karan-Nandini love triangle."
The source added that only two characters in the serial, including Tanya, are aware of the tragic incident and the two try to save Karan and Nandini in vain. Right from the beginning of the soap, the lovers had never wanted to stay apart, hence, their end is quite an appropriate wrap up of their screen tracks.
The deaths shake up the entire Virani family, with Bhoomi and Tulsi being the most affected as they were very close to the couple.
Hope scriptwriters of all soaps think of such practical conclusions whenever they want to withdraw any character from the story, instead of sending him/her off to a foreign country and expecting the audiences to forget about them.
