Ever since we've heard about the impending leap in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai there have been several stories about the current actors - Karan Mehra and Hina Khan moving on.

Most lead actors don't wish to age on screen and they've often walked out of shows when time leaps are announced.

We got in touch with Karan Mehra aka Naitik of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai to find out if he is happy with the changes in storyline and if he is planning to leave the show.

"Since January people have been speculating about me leaving the show. So many rumours have come up and I am tired explaining myself. I am loving how the new storyline is turning out. The current leap is a very small one, just a few years nothing more. And in any case I am not leaving the show. I am an actor and I have no issues playing any age. While I can't reveal much on what will happen next, I can tell you that the family will get estranged post the leap. It's an interesting track," said Karan.

Well that definitely clears it.

Karan is also gearing up for a different kind of project with his wife Nisha, which is still under wraps. Stay tuned to find out more.
