From past few days Mrunal Thakur is in news for quitting Balaji Telefilms’ Kumkum Bhagya that airs on Zee TV from Monday to Friday at 9 pm.
Is She Really Quitting Kumkum Bhagya?
Well, reportedly Mrunal is quitting Kumkum Bhagya due to the never ending track of Abhi and Pragya. This isn’t an impulsive or a sudden decision but has been going in her mind from quite some time now . It all started months ago when Bulbul was offered the role of Sita in Star Plus’ upcoming show ‘Siya Ke Ram’ and both, the production house (Balaji Telefilms) and the channel (Zee TV) didn’t approve of her decision to leave Kumkum Bhagya.
This was the reason why she decided to stay back in the serial. However, something else transpired between her and the producers and Mrunal Thakur decided to quit Kumkum Bhagya. No wonder, she thought she has very little to contribute in the show that is highly dominated by Shabbir Ahluwalia and Sriti Jha.
Interestingly, when Mrunal Thakur was asked about the same, she rubbished reports of her fall out with the channel and the producer. So, it is still not clear whether she has quit Kumkum Bhagya or not.
Talking to Bollywood Life, she cleared her stance by saying the following –
“I don’t want to give any comments on this right now. Please don’t quote me saying that Balaji didn’t allow me. It is actually not true. So it’s better not to make an issue out of this as I share a very good rapport with Balaji,”
However, the buzz is that Mrunal Thakur has already put down her papers and she is on her notice period. Her notice period is till December 2015.
Why is she quitting now?
Well, though Siya Ke Ram went from her hands, Mrunal has still decided to quit the show because she is not happy with the way her character is turning out. Mrunal was promised a substantial screen space meatier role however the script stretched and the makersof the serial didn’t stick to their word at all. Kumkum Bhagya is still all about Abhi and Pragya) and revolves only around them. Despite public demand, Kumkum Bhagya doesn’t show much about the second lead of the show -Purab (Arjit Taneja) and Bulbul (Mrunal Thakur).
Perhaps this can be a reason why she decided to move on. On the other hand, Arjit Taneja has started shooting for another Balaji Telefilms’ serial.
So will Mrunal’s Character Die in the Serial?
Well, sources reveal that Bulbul will meet with a tragic end in the show. This means we won’t have any replacement of Bulbul and Aaliya will succeed in her plan. It would be interesting to see whether Aaliya will marry Purab and let the serial move on further.
Meanwhile, Mrunal Thakur has nothing in hand as of now. She is waiting for offers to come.We do not have much information as of now but stay tuned and we’ll update if something comes up regarding the issue.
