Telly actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who is popularly known as Manav of Zee TV’s show Pavitra Rishta, will be quitting the show soon.
According to sources, Rajput has put in his papers and will be quitting the show around Deepawali. Apparently, he has taken this move due to his fall out with show’s producer Ekta Kapoor.
While the 25-year-old actor, who has also been part of dance-based reality show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, was unavailable for comments, his publicist confirmed the news of his quitting, saying, “Yes, it is true that Sushant is leaving Pavitra Rishta by this Deepawali. There is no doubt that the show is very close to his heart, but Sushant wants to tread on new grounds now. He has been getting a lot of offers from television — both reality shows and numerous fiction shows in the last few months, but he is tired of doing the same thing over and over again. He wants to learn as well as try new and interesting things.”
It is also rumoured that the actor is gearing up to learn filmmaking from the US and dance from Broadway.
