Here's extremely disappointing news for fans of television queen Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya.
The actress, who plays the role of Ishita on the hit show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, is set to bid adieu to it.
In a major twist in the storyline, producer Ekta Kapoor has decided to end Divyanka's character Ishita and bring in some new faces to add some freshness to the long-running series.
Confirming the news, Divyanka told Mid-Day: "I will be seen dying on the show. It's a great track, so anything for it."
The track will see Ishita ending her life while trying to rescue her daughter Pihu (Ruhaanika Dhawan), who has been kidnapped by goons.
The news will break millions of hearts given that Divyanka is the face of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. Also, we feel her absence will affect the show immensely as she is highly popular — the only Indian TV celeb with 6 million followers on Instagram.
However, since defying death is a common thing in Hindi TV shows, it won't come as a surprise if the makers decide to bring back Divyanka if the show fails to garner good viewership in her absence.
Meanwhile, fans are already upset with the news of Ishita's death, although they are assuming that Divyanka will not quit the show. Check out some Twitter reactions on Divyanka taking exit from Yeh Hai Mohabbatein:
