2016 was the year when many prominent Television actors left their respective shows. Whether it be the heartbreaking departure of Hina Khan from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai or Kapil Sharma's highly publicized exit from Comedy Nights With Kapil - we had to say goodbye to many of our beloved characters.
1. Hina Khan

As the beloved Akshara, Hina managed to entertain the audience for 8 straight years in Star Plus' Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Speculations were rife about her quitting for months but it was finalized by her that she would indeed be leaving the show. Well, rumours suggest that her reason for quitting was because of her apparent tantrums on set and also for the fact that the younger actors were hogging her spotlight. But, Hina claims that it was because of her health issues and the fact that the show was getting monotonous, that she ultimately parted ways with the show.

2. Kapil Sharma

Comedian Kapil Sharma became a household name with Color's Comedy Nights with Kapil. As he rose to fame, Colors added another comedy show - Comedy Nights Bachao. Kapil claimed that his show was used to raise the popularity of CNB and that was affecting CNWK. When he asked for a raise, the channel refused and hence Kapil moved on to Sony TV with The Kapil Sharma Show.

3. Karan Mehra

Fans were disheartened to find out that Karan Mehra aka Naitik was leaving the beloved show Star Plus' Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. While rumours suggest that it was the tiff between him and Hina Khan, Karan claims that it is because of health issues that he left the show.


4. Rohan Mehra

Rohan Mehra, who is currently a favourite on the show Bigg Boss, initially rose to fame with his character Naksh in Star Plus' Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. But, recently the makers have decided to replace Rohan with someone else as they could not keep his character hanging in the balance. And also because the makers feel that Rohan left them in a lurch by participating in Bigg Boss.

5. Shilpa Shinde

The news of Shilpa Shinde leaving Sab TV's Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai went viral and was all over the news. While Shilpa lashed out at the makers of the show stating that they tortured her and favoured Saumya Tandon over her. According to the makers, they revealed that Shilpa had been throwing tantrums since her first day on the show.

6. Nikita Dutta

Nikita Dutta won hearts with Sony TV's Ek Duje Ke Vaaste. Unfortunately, she suffered from Dengue and Leptospirosis and was hospitalized for a very long time. This led to a shortage in the bank of episodes that were shot and hence it was difficult for the makers to shoot without her. The show ultimately ended.

7. Mihika Verma

Mihika Verma played Ishita aka Divyanka Tripathi's cousin in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. The show had recently taken a 7-year leap and Mihika decided to call it quits with the show as she did not want to age onscreen. And also for the fact that she got married to NRI-businessman husband, Anand.

8. Vishal Singh

Vishal Singh aka Jigar was one of the prominent characters in Star Plus' Saath Nibhana Saathiya. But this year, the actor left the popular show because he felt that he could not do justice to the shoot took place seven days a week.

10. Kavita Kaushik

Kavita Kaushik was the lead in Sab TV's Dr. Bhanumati On Duty and was appreciated by the audience. But, as Kavita was unhappy with the way, the show was shaping up, she quit the show. The show then had a revamp as Dr. Madhumati On Duty and Kavita was replaced by Debina Bonnerjee
