Ishqbaaaz is one of the most popular running shows on Star Plus and has attracted the audience mainly because of its characters, plot, costumes, acting, dresses and what not. It has been in the highlight ever since the reports of its leading characters Anika aka Surbhi Chandna, Kunal Jaisingh, Shrenu Parikh, Leenesh Mattoo and Mansi Srivastava leaving the show came. Later when Surbhi took to her social media account to bid the show goodbye, her fans revolted against the decision of the makers and producer Gul Khan and various hashtags such as #EndIshqbaaaz and #NoSurbhiNoIshqbaaaz started trending but now a really shocking news has come to the town.
The producer of the show has finally taken a call on the same and has finally decided to put an end to the show after people started putting allegations on her that it was because of her that Surbhi had to leave later which she gave a statement about the same and opened up about the same. She said, “How am I being biased? I am the same person who retained Surbhi Jyoti for 4 years and changed 6 heroes in Qubool Hai. So how is retaining Nakuul Mehta signaling that I am gender-biased?”
Further she said, “Shocking to hear! If you talk about Ishqbaaaz, a few more characters other than Surbhi will also be terminated after leap. Clearly, people are not being changed on the basis of gender here. So, it’s idiotic to accuse me or Star Plus' of being gender biased. All I can say is that creating issues because you have no logical reason is terribly funny and frustrating.”
Even Surbhi opened up about her exit and made it clear that she was not upset about what has happened. She said, “I am not disappointed with the producer's call. She is the maker. Who am I to ask her a question about her creative decision? Usko jo theek lagega, woh karegi na. I have been a part of Ishqbaaaz for two-and-half years and received so much of love and appreciation from people. It is far more than I would have ever imagined. I am signing off on a content note. I have no hard feelings. Producer ne bhi kuch sochke plan kiya hoga na.”
Gul took to the Instagram page of Star Plus to share the news of Ishqbaaaz curtains falling down and bid farewell to the show’s beautiful journey and the video was captioned as, “Beautiful stories create beautiful memories. Let’s cherish the memories of our wonderful six and welcome new beginnings. Thank you for all the love. #Ishqbaaaz”
