The news of Kairav aka Shaurya Shah, the child artiste who was loved by everyone for his role in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, quitting the show spread like wildfire yesterday. A social media post from Shaurya’s Instagram account read that he was quitting the show owing to health issues. However, the post was later deleted. Some reports also suggested that the real reason behind this step are the tantrums thrown by both the kid and the parents.
When Spotboye.com contacted Shaurya’s mother and asked her about the same, she replied, ‘’I know. By now 100 stories must be floating around but the truth is that Shaurya is down with viral fever, past 5 days and he couldn’t go for shoots. In fact, he has not attended his school even today. I have all his medical certificates as proof too. So, they (production house, Director’s Kut) had to replace him on immediate basis.’’
When asked if it was the production house’s call to replace him, she told the portal, ''Yes, in a way. They had called Shaurya for a one-day shoot, but we said he is not in a condition. Although after a bit of discussion we went ahead for the shoot yet he couldn’t sustain for more than 2 hours and we had to get him back. However, they required him for 8-10 hours, which was not possible, so they had to go for a replacement.''
On why the post was deleted from his account, Mrs. Shah said, ''The production team called me and said to pull down the post because they didn’t want the news of Shaurya quitting the show to go out before they introduce his replacement.''
Shaurya had shared cute note on social media which was later deleted from his social media account. He wrote, "GOOD-BYE” I am grateful to the entire team of YRKKH for all the love, support and care. I extend a big thank you to all my fans for loving me as “Kairav” you all will be missed until me meet again. Last but not the least thank you Jai sir for believing in me. Naira didi u will always be my favourite and will be missed forever. Miss u all.’’
