For a while, there was buzz going on that Jasmin Bhasin will soon bid goodbye to Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji. And it has finally happened, the reason being the age-old drama of actresses not wanting to play mothers on-screen. The track of the show recently took a leap of 5 years, after which Happy (Jasmin Bhasin) was to be seen playing the role of a mother figure to her husband’s child. However, the actress has made an exit from the show, citing not wanting to play a mother on-screen as the reason. Revealing what led to her decision, Jasmin told Bombay Times, “The storyline of the show underwent a change recently along with a time leap. Initially, I wasn’t aware, but when I read the screenplay, I realised that I would have to play a mother. I didn’t want to do that, as that is not what I signed up for. I informed my producers and the creative team, accordingly.” Jasmin Bhasin Looks Smouldering Hot in Black Beachwear!

Jasmin also posted a farewell message for the cast and crew and makers of her show.

However, citing that the makers did not keep her in the loop with regards to the leap happening on the show, Jasmin told the daily, “The time leap was premature. When the script was narrated to me, I had asked the producers whether there would be a child, too, on the show. I was told that my character wouldn’t get married for at least a year. However, it’s just been six months and there has been a change in plan already. I was unhappy about this sudden turn of events, but I am glad that we have parted ways amicably. You can’t blame anyone, because everyone is dealing with the pressures of ratings and competition.”

And stepping into her shoes is actress Donal Bisht, who was last seen in Colors’ Roop… Mard Ka Naya Swaroop. However, Donal mentioned that she was told that her character’s storyline is not ‘mother-son relationship-based’. “It’s not a mother-son relationship, but one between a young woman and a child. At least, that’s the brief given to me. As a performer, I wish to explore every possible character given to me,” revealed Donal.
