The cast of "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" recently celebrated the completion of 500 episodes, but Karan Patel aka Raman Bhalla, didn't quite attend the event.

According to a Daily Bhaskar source, the TV star came, lit the candles placed on the cake and left.

Does this mean that the actor isn't interested in the show's success? While he may have his reasons to rush from the spot, Divyanka Tripathi (Ishita Bhalla) reportedly stayed back and expressed her happiness.

"I am very glad that our show has completed 500 episodes and I want to be a part of this show for many more years. Viewers have showered lots of blessings upon us and we promise to entertain them in the coming days too," she told the daily.

However, since no one from the team has talked about Karan leaving the event early, this can, at best, be considered a speculation.

In other news, the upcoming episodes in "YHM" will reportedly see Shagun, played by Anita Hassanandani, turn surrogate mother for Ishita and Raman. The team is apparently handling the new plot twist delicately as it has the potential to spark major controversies.
