Popular TV actor Iqbal Khan is disappointed with reports about his insecurity as an actor.

Iqbal, who has been part of hit show Tumhaari Paakhi for a year now, has decided to quit the project. "I have heard stories about creative issues being a problem, but, it was weird to read that I got insecure because the makers were planning to introduce a new character. I am not a new kid on the block, I am a fossil," says Iqbal.

The actor informs that he is leaving the show because he didn’t like the way his role was panning out. "I have quit because I didn’t like where the graph of my character was going; I was not happy with the direction in which it was heading. I couldn’t see myself doing it. Maybe the track will work, but what was offered didn’t work for me," says Iqbal.

The actor says that the rumours and inappropriate reports don’t affect him, as he has not made the decision in haste. "I had a chat with the producers and we mutually agreed to part ways. So, such stories surprise me. I don’t understand how they come up. Though I had a wonderful time on the show, I had some issues. I am certainly low because of leaving the show, as I had made some great friends."

Senior TV actor Varun Badola is the new entrant on the show, and will have a major role.
