Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon: Is Star Plus trying to defame Barun Sobti?

The serial on Star Plus is nearing its unexpected end and explanations are being offered in the most bizarre way. So what’s up here? We dig in to find out…

Almost a fortnight ago, we woke up to the news of Barun Sobti, the lead actor of Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, quitting the show to explore greener pastures of B-town. And while there was a persistent buzz about Viraf Phiroz Patel, a new hottie to be roped in to replace Sobti, it seems the makers now reveal a totally different story.

Whoever glued in to Star Plus between 9-9.30 pm yesterday would have been privy to the message displayed on the channel that was somewhere on the lines of – ‘Barun Sobti has decided to quit the show to pursue a career in films. And our repeated attempts to change his decisions have gone in vain. So the show will be abruptly ending on November 30.’

But hey, it isn’t the first time that a lead actor is quitting a show on television for a future in films. Remember Sushant Singh Rajput aka Maanav quit Pavitra Rishta to play a role in Abhishek Kapoor’s Kai Po Che? But that never resulted in the show shutting shop, did it? So why is the case so different with Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?

It may be because the makers earned a lot of flak from the fans after news of Sobti leaving the show broke out. And that must’ve given rise to the notion that Patel, how much ever handsome he might be, would never be able to fill in the void that Barun will leave.

But is it fair to put the entire blame on Barun Sobti in full public view by displaying the message? Die-hard Sobti fans who are loudly protesting on social networking sites are of the opinion that Star Plus is trying to defame Barun.

Is that so? What’s your take on it, BollywoodLifers? Do you think Star Plus is trying to defame Barun Sobti?
