Zee TV’s popular family drama Tujhse Hai Raabta, starring Reem Shaikh in the lead, has been winning hearts since its inception. And while the audience has been loving the storyline of Tujhse Hai Raabta, the family drama will see a change in the cast now as Shagun Pandey has walked out of the show. To note, Shagun was seen playing the role of antagonist Atharva Bapart in Tujhe Hai Raabta. The handsome hunk confirmed the news on social media with a special video.

He shared a video of himself from Tujhse Hai Raabta sets and announced his exit from the family drama. Expressing his gratitude towards fans for showering immense love on him, Shagun asserted that the hopes his character of Atharva did entertain the viewers. “Reporting from the #tujhsehairaabta set Well crazy 5 years on the same set and in same room #Badhobahu first and then Raabata but now I think it’s time to say goodbye here. I hope #Atharvabapat entertained you guys. THANK U for all the love thank u each and everyone for making this happen. cheers to #goodtimes.... Stay tuned there’s a lot to come #Aaishaapat @zeetv. Doston show ki trp kamm nai honi chaiye,” he wrote in the caption.

Take a look at Shagun’s post announcing his exit from Tujhse Hai Raabta:

Shagun also asserted that walking out of Tujhse Hai Raabta has been quite difficult for him as he has been associated with the show for two years. However, he feels that his character had reached a saturation point. “Quitting is quite a harsh term, let’s put it like my track has ended in the show, which can be temporary. I believe Atharva has been utilised enough in the show. I started the show as an innocent guy then regressed to become the negative character post which I got to play a five-year-old child to playing rarest of rare role of a transgender. What more can Atharva do? I can't be doing monotonous character just because I want to earn. It has been two years of my association with the show and anything more from Atharva's end would bore the audience. Having said that, the production house has not ended the chapter, the doors have been kept open and they would call me whenever they require Atharva and I’ll love to come back to the show if I won’t be bound by commitments,” Shagun was quoted saying to Telly Chakkar.

Calling his journey on Tujhse Hai Raabta an enriching experience, Shagun also asserted that there is a possibility of Atharva’s return in another wicked avatar.

While the young actor’s sudden exit from the show has left his fans heartbroken, his co-star Reem Shaikh also got emotional with the news. She shared a picture of herself hugging Shagun on Instagram and thanked him for adding new energy to the show. Calling Shagun her best buddy, Reem asserted that nobody could pull off the role better than him.

“Hey there @i_shagunofficial we all saw your last post on Instagram. Let me not get all emotional and just come to the point. Thank you for putting in so much while doing Raabta because it brought a lot of energy in the show. I don’t know about others but I’ve seen you, giving everything to the scenes. You will always remain my best buddy. You’ve seen me from being a mushroom (the hairstyle) to this all grown up Reem, hahahhahaha Raabta will surely miss you, and “aai shaapat” no one will ever be able to do justice to the kind of performance you’ve portrayed onscreen while playing #athavabapat,” Reem wrote, followed by a heart emoticon.

Reem’s overwhelming message did get Shagun emotional who also showered love on his good friend and said that he is glad that Tujhe Hai Raabta happened to him.
