The past few months have seen many actors quit popular shows like Balika Vadhu, Uttaran and Pavitra Rishta, which have been going on for years. Reason? They are simply bored! While some of these actors openly admit that they were tired of the ratings game and their talent was being wasted courtesy the endless twists, turns and time leaps in the story others have blamed their exit on 'lack of creativity'. Read on:

One of the most popular shows on TV, it has had a successful run for the last six years. But recently, three actors in pivotal roles Anup Soni, Smita Bansal and Satyajit Sharma walked out, citing lack of creativity and lesser scope for performance as reasons.

The show's lead actress, Rashami Desai, had made an exit earlier, only to come back. But recently, she quit for good, blaming it on unhappiness with the way her track was shaping up. Gaurav Chopra, who was paired opposite Rashami, has also quit the show.

Actors Siddharth Arora and Aadesh Chaudhary quit after the makers could not live up to their promise of a track that focuses on the duo. Siddharth, who played male lead Samrat's friend, was told he would be Urmi's (Neha Marda) love interest, but that did not happen. Similarly, Aadesh was promised a meatier role parallel to Samrat, but he also quit owing to lack of creativity.

Even after leaps and a new time slot, the show's makers are not ready to say goodbye to viewers. However, some actors Rithvik Dhanjani, Asha Negi and Shruti Kanwar bid farewell to the show. Shakti Arora, who played a small role, also moved on to play the lead in another show.
