Vaishnavi Dhanraj, fondly known as Tasha of CID has quit the show and the character will be bumped off in tonight's episode..

Vaishnavi Dhanraj who is today known as Tasha of Sony's popular and long-running show CID has decided to quit the show as she has bagged the lead role in COLORS' Na Aana Is Desh Laado.

Laado which is soon to take a generation leap of 20 years will rope in the two grown-up daughters of Sia (Natasha Sharma), and the girls to play this role will be Vaishnavi Dhanraj and Simran Kaur of Love Ne Mila Di Jodi fame.

As a result of this, Tasha's character in CID will be bumped off in tonight's episode.

Our source states, "In the episode, Tasha will be shown having an encounter with a lady criminal. Tasha picks up her gun to shoot her, but the other lady stops her and they have a tussle with the gun in their hand. This is when accidentally a bullet goes off and hits Tasha. The officer will breathe her last, thus bidding adieu to CID".

We called up Vaishnavi who confirmed the news and said, "Yes, it was a very tough decision to make. But I guess this is what every actor goes thro' as he/she grows in career. I will certainly miss my entire team, the unit, my co-actors who are like family to me. It has been a glorious two years for me in CID with Fireworks Productions and the channel. Having said this, I would want to get back to CID one day".

When asked about Na Aana Is Desh Laado, she said, "It is true that I am playing one of the leads there. But I am not supposed to talk of my role as of now. I start my shoot next week".

Well, CID fans get ready to watch Tasha's last episode tonight..
