Actor Mukesh Khanna, who plays Lalaji in 'Waaris', will soon quit the show after his character expires.
'Waaris', which is based on cultural issues and shows a mother bringing up a girl child as a boy, will soon take a seven-year-leap. Before that, Mukesh will leave the show after his character will die in a thrilling horseriding sequence featuring the actor.
"It was a great experience working on a different show like 'Waaris' which focuses on the practices prevailing in the society such as a male child being preferred over a female child".
"Also, the last scene I shot gave me chills literally, and was a very memorable experience. My exit in the show is necessary to take the story forward and I request all viewers to watch the show as it creates awareness," Mukesh, popularly known as the small screen's 'Shaktimaan', said in a statement.
'Waaris', aired on &TV, features Aarti Singh in the lead as Amba.
