After the much-hyped wedding of Naksh (Rohan Mehra) and Tara (Umang Jain) was called off in "Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai," the makers of the Star Plus' show will soon treat viewers with another interesting sequence in the upcoming episodes.

According to the latest reports, Naitik (Karan Mehra) would go missing after the storyline takes a time leap. The new development adds to the drama that is expected when Naira (Ashnoor Kaur) would reportedly be separated from her family after a huge argument.

According to Tellychakkar.com, the entire Singhania family, including Naitik, Akshara (Hina Khan) and Naira, will plan a trip to cheer up a heartbroken Naksh. "As per the track, the family will be out on a trip to cheer up Naksh after his wedding got called off. And there, while Naitik will be out to run some errands he will go missing," a source associated with the show told the website.

Karan is apparently planning to take a short break from the shoot and with him being away from the show, the makers have decided to introduce a new track in which viewers will be left wondering over Naitik's whereabouts.

Meanwhile, Karan has said he has no knowledge regarding the upcoming track and clarified that he is not taking any leave from the show. "I don't really know what tracks the creatives are planning post leap. As for my leave, well I have been hearing about it for the last four months now, [sic]" Karan said.

For the past several months, rumours of Karan planning to exit the show have been doing the rounds. Rumours had it that the show-makers were planning a generation leap, after which, the 33-year-old actor would be seen as a 50-year-old. This apparently didn't go down well with him, leading him to decide on quitting the show. However, the popular actor has been refuting these reports, claiming that he is very much a part of the show.
