A couple of months ago, Kullfi Kumarr Bajewala was moved out of the primetime schedule to make way for supernatural series Yehh Jadu Hai Jinn Ka. It was again shifted back to a primetime slot. The constant reshuffle in its timeslot affected its TRP, which led the channel to decide to bring the curtains down on it after completing 450 episodes.

News also had it recently that the makers were planning to introduce a generation leap in the show, which will pave the way for the exit of lead actor Mohit Malik. The actor had himself confirmed quitting the show post leap as he was not comfortable playing a father to two grown-up girls.

“I was fine with playing father to two small girls in the show. But I do not want to play a father to grown-up girls because I don’t think it will look convincing. I am still shooting, and so the feeling that I will no longer get to spend time with my on-screen daughters (Akriti Sharma and Myra Singh) is yet to sink in. I shot for the show like they were my real daughters and it’s going to be tough,” Malik had said.

According to reports, Mahesh Bhatt’s upcoming fiction show Jannat will replace Kullfi Kumarr Bajewala. The promo of the new show is expected to air from next week. More details are awaited.
