Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon: Why did Barun Sobti quit the show?

The actor who played main lead Arnav Singh Raizada has decided to bid adieu to this show on Star Plus. We dig in to find out why…

After winning the ITA (Indian Television Academy) award for the best actor and winning numerous trophies at the Star Parivaar Awards 2012 Barun Sobti has decided to quit Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon. But why? Are those cliched ‘creative differences’ to be blamed? “I am planning to take a break. I am very happy with the production house, but have been thinking about taking a break for a very long time now to spend some time with my wife,” Barun reveals. Really?

While Barun would like us to believe that the reason is THAT simple, sneaky birdies reveal the actor might be aiming for the bigger screen. We are also told that the chikna had taken a short break a while ago to shoot for a Bollywood movie ( Bappi Lahiri’s Main Aur Mr Right, perhaps). Hmmm, so what’s the truth, Barun?

Anyway, the actor refuses to speak up, so we let it be. But to accommodate his exit, we hear, the show will get Arnav Singh Raizada kidnapped (Wow! A genius twist, right?). And then, emerging as the new Arnav will be actor Viraf Phiroz (of Mahi Way and Kismat fame). But guess what – even Phiroz refuses to share any juicy details! “I cannot talk right now. There are a few things in the pipeline but I can only talk about it post Diwali. People who are taking the decisions are on leave.” Ahem ahem.

So while the going-ons remain hazy, we would like to ask you, readers – will you miss Barun Sobti in Iss Pyaar Ko Main Kya Naam Doon?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    i totally disagree with barun quit.. all fans effort are waste now.. nothing helped

    • Ipsita

      Barun has made ASR iconic in television. ASR is a very desirable character. It is very well written by the writer and extreemly well executed by Barun Sobti. It is as though his looks are made for a character like ASR. He looks handsome, arrogant, attractive, sensitive, naughty and smouldering hot.Its small wonder that he is winning many awards for his role. Some of us who hardly watch hindi serials, got addicted to IPKKD mainly because of Barun. I dont think anyone will suit in the character of ASR as much as Barun did. If IPKKND has to go on without Barun, then some new character should be brought in as most of us will not be able to accept anyone in the role of ASR except Barun.
      Cheers to ASR aka Barun, who lights up our evenings and increases our heartbeat with his scintillating performances.bye bye ipkknd gonna miss u so much!
      barun we are going 2 miss u so much
      please dont leave!! :’(

  • nhung

    barun please don’t give up if next without him, the result of all the actor to achieve is pointless because he is the soul of Arnav Singh Raizada

  • Syrah

    Don’t put the blame always on the actor… May be Star Plus and 4Lions are too at fault… They are reporting contradictory details every now and then, may be they are just trying to save their names and put the blame on Barun. Think befor u write something.

  • Mariya(kerala)

    Barun dont quit ipkknd

  • MINAL
