Star Plus' press release puts the final nail in the coffin; Barun Sobti all set to become history in Iss Pyaar Ko...

Whatever trickle of doubt or non-clarity sniffed the air has now vanished. Here we are mentioning about the great hullabaloo pertaining to Barun Sobti shedding the cloak of Arnav Singh Raizada in Star Plus’ Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon.

If readers scratch their memory cells a bit, they will recall that was the first news and entertainment portal which broke the news of Barun throwing in his towel. The information did create a lot of buzz and lot of relevant articles kept flowing in since then.

As days passed by, Barun’s exit became more or less certain with fans all over the world resorting to campaigns to avert the impending.

But a press release sent to media houses from the channel has rest the case.

The write up had a headline, “Barun Sobti chooses films over TV”.

And here’s the release (we are publishing it as it is)

"Fans loved him as ASR (Arnav Singh Raizada) and the news of Barun Sobti quitting the show created a wave of disappointment not just with the Indian viewers but also with global audiences. In a move that might break millions of hearts, Arnav will soon bid an adieu to his viewers from the show. "I loved playing ASR and I am very thankful to Star Plus for giving me this opportunity. I also wish to thank my fans who have appreciated my character and showered me with unconditional love. However everyone wants to explore new avenues and I plan to work on a few movie projects now. In future I might comeback to TV someday. I would like to request my fans to continue loving me the same way," says an emotional Barun. However the good news for his fans in the UK is that they will get a chance to meet him at an event being hosted by Star Plus in Birmingham.

Nachiket Pantvaidya, General Manager, Star Plus, said, "ASR is hugely popular with our viewers however Barun has decided that he wants to pursue films. As for the show, there will be some very interesting twists making the story extremely interesting."
