BADE ACCHE LAGTE HAIN: Mohit Malhotra quits the show

The handsome actor has decided he doesn’t want to be a part of BALH anymore. Why are we not surprised?

It’s official. After months of speculation, it has finally been confirmed that Mohit Malhotra aka Kartik will not be a part of Bade Acche Lagte Hain once the show’s storyline leaps forward. Eva Grover (Niharika Kapoor) has already quit the show while Chahat Khanna, who essayed the role of Kartik’s sister Ayesha, has decided to continue after having a discussion with producer Ekta Kapoor. Mohit too had been in talks with Ekta about the way his character will develop after the leap. Now, we hear, he is dissatisfied with the track planned for Kartik and has decided to quit.

We can believe that version. Hey, we are not half as eager to tune in to BALH today as we were the same time last year. The way the story is going… the show is more blah than BALH. What we don’t understand is the other buzz doing the rounds – that Mohit did not want to play a father at such a young age and so decided to quit. C’mon! The show is taking a leap of only five years! Kartik’s child could not be older than four years. We would have understood if the show was taking a 20-year-leap, but we don’t see how having a small kid would make any difference to his on screen image. We won’t be surprised if the falling TRPs had anything to do with his decision. Or a better offer, maybe?
