Even as "Saath Nibhaana Saathiya" is ruling the TRP charts, a crucial character will soon make an exit from the show. Popular actor Amar Upadhyay's character Dharam is going to die in one of the upcoming episodes.

The death sequence has been carefully scripted by the makers of the telelseries, recent reports reveal. Amar, who is upset with the sudden change in the track, had believed that the storyline would develop a good chemistry between the unusual couple, Dharam and Meera (Tanya Sharma), considering that the viewers had accepted thepair.

However, now he seems to have accepted that the makers must have decided to end his track keeping the script in mind. With his stint coming to an end, Amar now plans to take rest and focus on his health.

"It is sad that my character is ending in the show. The audience had accepted the unusual jodi of Meera and Dharam wholeheartedly, so this twist is bound to dampen their spirits. Initially, I thought they (the makers of the show) will build the chemistry more between our characters but suddenly I get to know that my character is being bumped off. I was quite shocked but guess it is okay. I trust the makers and I'm sure whatever they are doing is as per the requirement of the script," Amar told Asian Age.

"I don't know if I will be brought back in the show. For now, a heavy schedule has taken a toll on my health. So in a way it's good that they are ending my track. For now I am going to take proper rest which is much required," he added.

While Amar's exit is confirmed, it is also being said that Devoleena Bhattacharjee, who plays Gopi bahu, is quitting the show as another generation leap is being planned in the plot.

Devoleena, who already plays a mother in the show, is reluctant on playing a grandmother. The actress had said in an interview to the Times of India that she is not happy with the track. "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 had told the daily.
