How do you look back at your exit from Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?I left the show simply because I wanted a break. I wanted some personal time. But it was made out to be something else. I have been spending all my time with family lately. They were extremely upset that I haven’t been able to be with them in the last couple of years. What’s been the feedback on the show going off air? I actually met a few friends the other day, and everyone was discussing the same thing. I realised no one knew exactly what I want. Every time I tried to explain, my words were misunderstood. I kept saying I wanted personal time as I had been working for long, and that was the sole reason. I am free for the next five months but people still think I left for a movie role. I think only my wife understands me.
You sound hurt…I don’t expect anything from anyone. I am a simple guy, but the way I am being projected is so different. I don’t feel the need to justify myself. I have decided to let things go as I have to carry on working. I have come out of this feeling more thankful to my audience for their love and support. Words can’t express how grateful I am.
