We called up Akshay and asked about the matter. He said, “Yes, I wasn"t so happy the way my character was progressing before but now I am very satisfied. I just felt that from quite some time my character was losing its importance and I felt like withdrawing the show but now it"s shaping as per my expectations. The show has taken a generation leap and I think all of us will now get to play something different from what we used to play before."
Well, even we wouldn"t have liked a talented actor like Akshay moving out of a long running and successful show like Saat Phere.
