Rashi the original antagonist of 'Saath Nibhaana Saathiya' is soon going to bid adieu to the show. As reported by us a few months ago, Rucha Hasabnis, who plays the part, is settling down in real life and hence, wants to give acting a break. She won't be replaced, but the makers will introduce a new character opposite Jigar (Vishal Singh), her on-screen husband.

The new girl in Vishal's life will be played by Falaz Naaz, who was last seen in 'Sasural Simar Ka'. It will be a negative character. Rashi will be killed by Masterji (Manoj Chandila). Says a source from the show, "Masterji secretly loves Gopi and wants her at any cost. He will try to kill Ahem thinking that this would leave Gopi with no option but to marry him. But Rashi will come in the way and get killed." Rucha didn't revert to our text message. Rucha confirmed, "Yes, I am quitting the show, but there is no clarity regarding my last day of shoot. It could be either July 31 or August 1. However, I can't disclose what will happen to my character."
