Over the years, the popular daily soap has managed to win hearts, thanks to Kartik and Sirat aka Mohsin Khan and Shivangi Joshi’s sizzling chemistry and the surprising twists and turns. However, if recent reports are to be believed, Mohsin Khan is quitting the show.

A source close to the development was quoted as saying, “Yes Mohsin is planning to move on. Since the show is going in for a generation leap, he wouldn't want to play an older character.
