 It will be interesting if fans accept Manjiri with open arms as the news of Surbhi Chandna’s exit had wreaked havoc with the viewers asking the makers to end the show. In fact, they had even taken to the streets to showcase their demands. For those who missed it, Surbhi spoke EXCLUSIVELY to SpotboyE.com and revealed that she was never part of the leap. She had said, “it's the producer's call. She is the maker. Who am I to ask her a question about her creative decision? Usko jo theek lagega, woh karegi na. I have been a part of Ishqbaaaz for two-and-half years and received so much of love and appreciation from people. It is far more than I would have ever imagined. I am signing off on a contented note. I have no hard feelings. Producer ne bhi kuch socke plan kiya hoga na.” Apart from Surbhi, Shrenu Parikh, Mansi Srivastava, Kunal Jaisingh and Leenesh Mattoo’s characters will also bid goodbye to fans. 

Mansi had also spoken to us exclusively and confessed that she will miss the show. “We had a great run and the show has given us a lot of love. Shooting with the team has been amazing and we have become great friends along the way. It feels sad to bid goodbye, but nevertheless, change is a part of life and we should accept and embrace it gracefully,” she had said.
