Actors of Kumkum Bhagya are on quitting spree!
After Shikha Singh (who played the role of
Alia), we hear another important character of the show, Purab aka
Arjit Taneja is leaving the show! It has to be recalled that
Arjit's on-screen girlfriend, Mrunal Thakur (who played the role of
Bulbul) had left the show as she was not happy with the way her
role was shaping up!
Apparently, Arjit has put in his papers, and is serving the
notice period. He will be shooting his last episode on August
A source was quoted by a leading daily as saying, "Arjit
acknowledges that he has got immense popularity with the character
Purab. He didn't want to quit the show as he has gotten too
attached to the unit. But there is nothing much left for him to do
in the show as Purab's character lost prominence over a period of
time. And this prompted him to take the step to put in his papers
On the show, after Bulbul's death, Purab has been constantly
supporting Pragya in her fight with Tanu, Nikhil and Alia. He is
also helping his best buddy Abhi. But, we have to agree that after
Bulbul left, Purab's role has lost prominence!
We wonder how the makers will end Purab's role on the show!
Although his fans will miss him on their favourite show, here is
good news - Arjit will soon be seen co-hosting Vikas Gupta's show
Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya with Abhishek Malik.
