Sara Khan, who played the lead as Sadhna in Bidaai, has now quit the show. Asked what prompted this, she says, It was a mutual understanding between Rajan Shahi and me. I'm really happy that it was on a good note.

Adds Sara, It will always be a part of me. I cant ever forget my experience of working with the lovely team of Bidaai. I wont miss anyone because Ill continue to stay in contact with everybody from the show."

What was the best moment of the show? The most unforgettable moment was when I got selected to play the lead role of Sadhna. I still cannot forget that day.

Does she regret quitting the show that gave her instant recall with the masses? "Bidaai has given me a lot but I dont regret my decision to quit. Every show has to end one day. Its part and parcel of a soap."

She adds, "My friends and family were also in tears with my decision to quit as they all loved me in Bidaai. I've been getting smses and emails from fans saying they will miss me. The most touching was when my assistant director cried on my last day of shooting. This incident was a mixed bag of sorrow and happiness."

Now that she won't be shooting round-the-clock for a daily soap, what will she do in her spare time? Sara says, "Im busy shooting for ads, giving more time to my beauty salon and spending more time with friends and family, which I couldn't earlier."

Was the time leap for Bidaai a TRP strategy? I dont agree. The TRPs were still at their peak when I left the show. The show's success all depends on the plot, the channel and the script writer.

There are rumours that Sara will be working with Riteish Deshmukh in a film directed by boyfriend Ali Merchant. Sara doesn't deny this but says, "I dont want to comment on it but there are talks on many projects. I would like to comment once things are finalised.

Did Bidaai open doors to Bollywood? She remarks, No, not at all. Working in a daily soap is very different from a movie.

Is she ready for another daily soap? Sara confesses, "I'm not that keen to do a daily soap, but Im always ready for reality soaps. I'll be participating in a reality show soon."
