A source from the channel though confirmed that the actor was terminated from the show. Piyush on the other hand says, "I wanted to leave Shapath as it's been two years I was playing the same character and thought that there was no growth in the character. Also I wanted to take some time off and wanted to spend some time with my wife for a long vacation so I told channel that I'm quitting the show."
Piyush was lucky enough to have bagged the show Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke as he says, "After I decided to quit Shapath... the channel approached to me to play the character of Ram in Devon Ke Dev. Mahadev and as soon as I completed my stint in the show I fortunately got this Zee show. Though the channel wanted me to come back but I declined as I knew that there is nothing more that I can give to my role of Abhigyan. All I can say is that I was not terminated from Shapath but I quit the show. Also the channel was ok with this decision."
He says that he is very happy to be a part of the
show Sapne Suhane... as it is his dream role, "I've moved on and am very
happy to be part of the show Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke as it's my dream role.
Firstly I look very stylish in the show and people had loved my character too. I
think roles like that of Vivian Dsena as RK in Madhubala- Ek Ishq Ek Junoon or
Gurmeet Choudhary as Maan Singh Khurana in Geet Hui Sabse Parayi is something
that audience like. My character too is similar to that."
Piyush is happy with the way the audience has liked his character and says that the audience loves his character the most, "I know mostly such characters are or have been played on TV but each individual has different style. Vivian has his own style and I've my own. The best part is that audience loves it thus the TRP ratings have gone up from 2 to almost 3 after my entry."
Way to go Piyush!
