Star Plus’s popular daily soap Ishqbaaaz has been in the headlines since the time the news came that the maximum leading characters of the show including Anika aka Surbhi Chandna, Kunal Jaisingh, Shrenu Parikh, Leenesh Mattoo and Mansi Srivastava and only Shivaay aka Nakuul Mehta will continue in the show. The makers have decided to drift the story of the show and a huge generation leap will be taken in the show in the upcoming episodes.
Surbhi recently took to her social media account to share the confirmed news by posting three goodbye videos and thanking everyone from the cast and even her fans who showered her with so much love. Just after that her fans got agitated against the producer of the show Gul Khan for forcefully asking Surbhi to leave the show and said that they won’t watch the show if she wasn’t there later which many hashtags such as #NOSURBHINOISHQBAAAZ and SpeakUpStarIndia started trending in which the fans wanted justice and answer from the makers of the show.
Now, the producer of the show Gul Khan has opened up on all the fiasco and has given her clarification over the same.
When a leading entertainment portal contacted her she said, dig this “How am I being biased? I am the same person who retained Surbhi Jyoti for 4 years and changed 6 heroes in Qubool Hai. So how is retaining Nakuul Mehta (which suggests that he has had a change of mind, for he was contemplating to exit until 3 days back) signalling that I am gender-biased? Shocking to hear! If you talk about Ishqbaaaz, a few more characters other than Surbhi will also be terminated after leap. Clearly, people are not being changed on the basis of gender here. So, it’s idiotic to accuse me or Star Plus’ of being gender biased. All I can say is that creating issues because you have no logical reason is terribly funny and frustrating.”
