After impressing with her stint as Swarna in Star Plus' much-celebrated show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai for almost three years, Parul Chauhan bid adieu to the show. Confirming the news, the actress told Times of India, "Yes, I have quit the show as I was not ready to play the role of a grandmother's role at such an early stage of my career. I felt I won't be able to do justice to the role. I spoke to Rajan sir (Producer) and thankfully he understood my concerns." However, the actress' exit came as a surprise to not only her fans, but also Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai's team members and producer Rajan Shahi, who gave Parul her first break in the telly industry with one of his hit shows, Sapna Babul Ka... Bidaai. Yes, you read that right. Parul's exit was unexpected and precisely why the producer of the show was shocked and upset with the news of Parul's exit!

Hindustan Times quoted a source as saying, "Apparently, Shahi was unaware of this development in Parul's mind and was too shocked to react. He let her go," further adding, "Parul has been missing on the hit primetime drama since January first week. Her co-stars are aware of this but as she wasn't very close to any of them, and therefore, no one has reacted. It was too sudden and unexpected for all of them, but mostly for Shahi who treated Parul like family. Even Parul always praised Shahi and treated him like family and this sudden change in behavior has taken everyone aback."

Meanwhile, Parul is currently on a break from daily soaps and it seems that she is making the most of it. Parul, who tied the knot with her BFF - Chirag Thakkar last year (December 12, 2018), is making sure she devotes her maximum time to her personal life. Talking about it, the actress told the daily, "I am enjoying the break and not in any hurry to return to work. I went to stay with my parents at my house for few days. Doing a daily soap becomes very hectic, you end up getting no time for yourself. Hence, I am also working on body and taking care of myself. I am enjoying the break."
