However, today Daljeet Bhanot released her official statement and spoke to Tellybuzz confirming her participation in the show. She told us –"I'm not quitting Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? I am very lucky to have a production house that is so accommodating and I'm fortunate to have a cast that is very supportive." She further added that –" I was considering another show but then I realised that the future track of IPKKND will involve a lot of Anjali's participation and I will not be able to afford another show."
We quizzed her on what prompted her to consider another show and she replied saying that Anjali's emotions had drifted apart –" Arnav and Anjali always had this envious brother – sister bond and somewhere down the line I felt that the emotions drifted apart. However, future episodes will again focus on the brother-sister bond."
She further stated that viewers and fans are in for an emotional ride in the future –" I'm glad all issues have been ironed out and viewers are in for a lot of tears and emotional ups and downs." She said that she was overwhelmed with the love and support showered by her fans- " Anjali's character is almost my baby and it was very difficult for me to think of letting it go. Even if I was plagued by an iota percent of doubt the fans were always there to support me and guide me – I'm so very grateful to them. Any number of awards or nominations cannot match the love and support shown by the fans. I'm a winner all thanks to my fans."
We asked her for the future track and she told us that Anjali will need all the shoulders she can get –"We all know that Anjali is a pious lady and believes in goodness of others. For her Shyam is her god and has immense faith in her relationship. She is going to need all the emotional strength and shoulders to cry on. People should give Anjali benefit of the doubt in the future track."
All the fans of the show can now heave a sigh of relief and sit back and enjoy the emotional ride they are in for !
