Before you jump to any conclusion, let’s clear it – we are talking about the actor and not the character she plays
Sonali Verma who plays Gayatri in Star Plus’ Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has put down her papers ‘coz the actor is all set to tie the knot with her beau Sachin Sachdeva. The actor has apparently wrapped up all her commitments and finished shooting for Rajan Shahi’s Yeh Rishta…
According to the trailers, Gayatri goes on a rock climbing expedition with Naitik (Karan Mehra), Akshara (Hina Khan) and Naksh (Shivansh Kotian). While the little kid is doing stunts and the family is watching him with their hearts in their mouth, Gayatri slips. Akshara’s mother-in-law loses balance and falls from the top of the mountain. She somehow manages to hang on to a branch while the family screams in shock.
One of the trainers, swings down to help Gayatri back up the mountain, but unable to hold on for long, she loses her grip and falls. Gayatri falls down thousands of feet and breathes her last. This will be the first death sequence in the Rajan Shahi show. Yeh Rishta… will then showcase the Sighanias grieving and then finally trying to get back to normalcy, after losing their loved one.
However, Sonali is in seventh heaven! The actor claims that it has not yet sunk in that she is leaving the show and Mumbai for good. After being in the industry for 17 years and in Mumbai for ten, it would be very difficult to leave everything and go back to Delhi. Sonali also said that she is excited about her new life in Delhi and hopes to come back to TV some day.
