Gopi bahu of "Saath Nibhaana Saathiya" aka Devoleena Bhattacharjee has threatened to quit the show due to the time leap. Devoleena, who replaced Giaa Manek for the lead character's role, is not happy with the show going for another leap.
One of Gopi's daughters is shown pregnant in the show and soon she will have to play the role of a grandmother. Devoleena is not happy with the track and has said that she will quit, as she won't be comfortable playing the role of a grandmother.
"Isn't it enough that a young woman like me is playing mother to such grown-up girls? I was patient so far. But I certainly won't be comfortable playing a grandmother. I will wait till the creative team takes a decision. If they take a leap, I will quit," Devoleena told the Times of India.
Last year, Lovey Sasan aka Paridhi made an exit from the show stating that she was not happy with her role and also she was not comfortable playing the role of a mother. But she returned to the show this year.
"The production house had told the actor about the entry but it got delayed for certain reasons due to which, the actor got confused whether she was to make a comeback or not... However, the actor finally got the call and the creative person narrated her entry to her and she has finally agreed to be back on board," a source told India Forums.
"Saath Nibhaana Saathiya," which airs on Star Plus, is one of the top rated televisions shows in India. The show tops the TRP chart along with Colors' "Naagin" almost every week.
