In a 2016 report by Asian Age, Karan Mehra revealed the real reason behind bidding Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai adieu. The actor had said, “Honestly I never wanted to quit but I just could not continue anymore. My health woes were worsening day by day. I am on immunotherapy shots. I have developed HAH (High Altitude Headaches) & Back Spasms. My allergies have boomed and the doctor asked me to take it easy or I would collapse and reach the ICU. It was high time I looked after myself. So I left the show”.

This site had also reported that Hina would demand her scenes be shot first, and after a point, it was reported that Mehra felt he was like a piece of furniture on sets.
