It is common for the TV actors to abandon their shows to pursue greener pastures. Be it to pursue their career in films or to jump to another show, very often the actors are found abandoning their shows, like Barun Sobti and Sushant Singh Rajput, left their shows Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naa Doon and Pavitra Rishta at their peak time to pursue their career in films and Karan Singh Grover and Vivian Dsena exiting their show Qubool Hai and Madhubala for other yet-unclear reasons. The question now is, which of these exits shocked the viewers the most.
In case of Barun Sobti and Sushant Singh Rajput it was very clear that the actors were going to enter films right from the beginning. Barun had even announced that he would stay for a fixed amount of time on the show and will pursue his career in films no matter what. And in case of Sushant, there were talks about him working for Kai Po Che for a long time and the fans were prepared for it by the time he left his show.
It comes down to Karan Singh Grover and Vivian Dsena. The two actors had crazy fan following and the shows along with their characters had become household names for a very long time. When the exit of both these actors were announced, the viewers were left shell-shocked. And coming to whose exit was most shocking, the award definitely goes to Karan Singh Grover.
In case of Vivian Dsena, Madhubala EK Ishq Ek Junoon was having difficulties with the rating for a long time and the show and the actor stopped being interesting over a period of time. Whereas in case of Karan Singh Grover, he left the show during Qubool Hai's greener days due to health reasons. And with the channel blaming the actor for being unprofessional and that he showed up to sets under influence was enough to shock the entire industry for a long time to come.
So, the exit that shocked the most, is Karan Singh Grover's exit from Qubool Hai.
