Why did Harshad Chopda leave Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai?

There were whispers that Harshad Chopda left Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai due to a disagreement with Rajan Shahi. Though Harshad has never discussed it publicly, Shahi recently broke his silence and "confirmed" that they don't get along creatively.

In a conversation with TellyChakkar, Rajan confirmed while there were creative differences between him and Harshad, they have never fought. The producer acknowledged that he and the actor did not share the same creative vision but they were professional about it. He added that the stories about the problems with Harshad and Pranali were heavily embellished in an attempt to generate publicity.


Rajan said, "Creative differences the Harshad se, kuch baateon mei. But wo har bande ko, director ko bolta hai 'Sir, mai iss scene se convinced nahi hun.' Wo toh hota hi hai na. (There were creative differences with Harshad but that’s everywhere. Every actor says to his director that he is not convinced with the scene. That happens.)" The producer added that he first called Harshad after returning from the Mahabaleshwar shoot of the new generation, and they had a long conversation. According to Rajan Shahi, he even expressed to Harshad his desire to work on a series with him in the future.
