Sivaji Satam aka ACP Pradyuman, who is synonymous with CID - one of the longest-running shows on television, has decided to call it quits.

And with this, the 15-year-long association will come to an end. Apparently, the entire cast and the crew is in a state of shock with his decision to bid adieu to the show.

Informs a source from the show, "Shivaji has informed the production house of his decision to quit CID. His tenure will end in the second week of December. The channel and the producer is trying their best to convince and retain him on the show. There is no confirmation whether a new actor will be roped in to play the famous role of ACP Pradyuman or the character itself will be wiped off."

When contacted, Shivaji Satam said, "I have no idea. I haven't told anything to the producer."

We sent a text message to the producer, but he didn't revert.

While the fans of the show and the producer would hope that the actor changes his decision, if Shivaji quits the show, one would dearly miss him and the famous dialogue 'Daya, darwaza todoo'.
