Prachi Tehlan, the diva who plays the leading lady in Star Plus’ Ikyawann is all set to bid bye to the show.  This news comes as a big shock for many reasons. Firstly, the entire show revolves around Susheel, played by Prachi.  Secondly, the show is just few months old. Hence, lady lady’s exit is indeed a big decision by show makers.

But before you move on to assume anything, let us already clarify that Prachi’s exit is temporary! Yes, she is not leaving the show forever.  She is not even being replaced by any other actress.

It was none other Prachi herself, who buzzed the internet about her exit from the show. She posted a selfie on her Instagram and wrote, “Last selfie on the sets before I leave for a long gap.” When asked about the break, Prachi told a leading newspaper, “In the upcoming episodes, you will see me doing mud fight with a professional wrestler. It is actually a very important sequence that would contribute to the progression of the story. Post the sequence, the story will take an expected turn which demands my exit from the show. You have to wait and watch to know what comes next.”

However, that’s not all! The actual reason behind her sudden exit is a little more than that. Prachi is actually all set to do a film with South Superstar Mammootty. She had signed the film last year and the film is now going on floors. Hence, Prachi has shifted there for a month.

She will return to the show somewhere in June.

Also, despite having a unique storyline, the show hasn’t been able to make a mark in TRP charts. Hence, show makers have used the trick of ‘actress exit’ to bring the show back on tracks. Hina Khan’s exit did wonders for Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Moreover, in Yeh Hain Mohabbatein also, Doyanka’s character was all set to die but makers introduced a twist. But the entire sequence around her death brought back the show on top positions. We hope the same works for Ikyawann as well!
