Star Plus' long-running show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has been in the news for several reasons. While rumours about lead actress Hina Khan aka Akshara quitting the show continue to make headlines, the makers are set to introduce a major development on the show.

The makers are planning for Kartik (Mohsin Khan) and Naira's (Shivangi Joshi) wedding, which will also see new actors entering the show. While rumour had it that Sandeep Rajora and Parul Chauhan were roped in to play Kartik's parents; the latest report said that Sandeep has been replaced by popular actor Shakti Anand.

However, Shakti, best known for Bharat Ka Veer Putra-Maharana Pratap, has denied being approached for the show. "No, I am not doing 'Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai'. There are no talks about it too," he told India Forums.

Meanwhile, rumour has it that Star Plus channel and the creative team of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai have decided to end Hina's character. Hina's co-star also confirmed the news to Mid-Day saying that her lack of punctuality and absence from the sets have resulted in the makers taking the stern decision. "Her lack of punctuality and truancy have been a headache for the makers. Recently, she claimed to be suffering from dengue but somehow managed to give interviews to channels," Hina's co-star said.

Earlier, rumour had it that the actress was not happy with the show's focus shifting towards the young actors and wanted the makers to put her in the limelight once again.
