Actor Mrunal Jain joined the long-running show, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, starring Pranali Rathod and Harshad Chopda, with great hopes. The family drama marked his comeback to the fiction genre five years after his stint on Naagarjuna – Ek Yoddha. However, it’s been barely a month and a half and his track has wound up prematurely. According to sources, Mrunal shot his last episode last week, and chances of his return are unlikely.
Mrunal’s character has wrapped up. He says,
“There was no scope for my character to grow in the ongoing storyline. So for the time being, they have kept it open-ended. It can be brought back later but I wouldn’t be able to tell when.”
Ask him if he will return to YRKKH if the track reopens and he replies,
“I have prior commitments. I have to commence the shoot of a South film and a web series soon. I am also focusing on music videos and my tennis league. At this point, it looks difficult. So, if I am required on YRKKH, I will inform Rajan (Shahi) sir about my schedule. Having said that, I would love to work with them again.”
He further adds,
“I am open for new work. I will like to explore reality shows like Khatron Ke Khiladi”
