hina-khan-759 Hina Khan plays the lead role of Akshara ever since the show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai began airing in 2009.

Actor Hina Khan, who made her debut on the small screen with the popular television show, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has been in news for some time now. First, because of her ill-health leading to the delaying of the show’s Switzerland schedule, then her tantrums on the sets and ultimately getting insecure from the new generation of the show. Though later she cleared the air about all the rumours in an interview saying that everyone should get a fair chance, the real picture looks quite different.

More from the world of Entertainment:


Looks like things just don’t seem to settle down around Hina. Now we hear she has finally decided to call it quits. According to the reports, Hina who plays the protagonist Akshara in the show feels that her role has been sidelined and more attention is being given to newbies Naira, played by Shivangi Joshi and Kartik played by Mohsin Khan.

Reportedly, Hina has demanded 70 per cent screen time for her character from the creatives of the show. Also, she asked for equal footage in the Switzerland track which was otherwise planned around the love track between Naira and Kartik. But, since the makers of the show are not very happy with Hina’s unprofessional attitude and Naira and Kartik’s love track is also attracting more ratings, they are planning to ease out her character all together. The makers have now started to work out her exit.
