Though unbelievable, Iqbal Khan aka Abhimanyu posed for Chhoona Hai Aasman on Saturday for the last time ever. "Yeah, Iqbal is out of the show", confirms Sandiip Sikcand, creative head of Miditech, the producer of Chhoona. Reasoning his statement Sandiip further adds, "His contract with us was over which he didn't want to renew".
Albeit Sandiip is in deep gloom about the reason of Iqbal abandoning the dwindling show, Iqbal makes clear that he has problem with someone in the show. Here, again the statement leads to a Chhoona Hai... track with a shadowy character that Iqbal denies to unveil.
On the other hand our source describes the matter as Iqbal's unhappiness regarding the way the character was shaping up in the show.
Whichever be the truth behind Iqbal leaving the show, it's all about show-business and, as the saying goes on in the industry, the show must go on. Thus, Sandiip makes clear, "We would not be killing the character and are thinking of the new replacement." Likewise, Khan also confirms that his conversation is on with some other show and will be back on the small screen, soon.
Maybe that's how the end of the show on the screen gives birth to another show of unseen rivalry off screen. Oops yeh show-wale!
