However, when Times of India reached the actor, he expressed surprise at the rumours and said, "I am not quitting the show. I wonder where these rumours have come from. I was babysitting a child in my first show 'Banoo Main Teri Dulhan', and later in 'Maharana Pratap' too, I played a father. Even 'Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki', I essayed the role of a father. So, why would I quit a show now because of that? I have no qualms about playing a father on screen.In fact, I am looking forward to the new track in Muskaan." Ssharad Malhotra and Ripci Bhatia Complete One Month of Marriage, Share Mushy Pictures on Instagram
