Jasmin Bhasin has reportedly opted out of the show because she did not want to play a mother onscreen and that too in a series which went on-air just six months ago. Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji took a five-year time leap recently. As per the new storyline, the lead character will be seen taking care of her husband’s son from his first wife.

Opening up about the entire episode, Jasmin says, “The storyline of the show underwent a change recently along with a time leap. Initially, I wasn’t aware, but when I read the screenplay, I realised that I would have to play a mother. I didn’t want to do that, as that is not what I signed up for. I informed my producers and the creative team, accordingly.”

The actress goes on to add that she is unhappy with the makers as they did not keep her in the loop about upcoming changes in the storyline of the show. “The time leap was premature. When the script was narrated to me, I had asked the producers whether there would be a child, too, on the show. I was told that my character wouldn’t get married for at least a year. However, it’s just been six months and there has been a change in the plan already. I was unhappy about this sudden turn of events, but I am glad that we have parted ways amicably. You can’t blame anyone, because everyone is dealing with the pressures of ratings and competition,” concluded the actress.
