Actress Leena Jumani; who shot to fame with her stint in Ekta Kapoor's long-running daily soap Kumkum Bhagya, on ZEE TV, has now decided to quit the show and here's why!


In an interview with SpotboyE; Leena has revealed that she will never leave the show on a bad note, but her decision to quit the show comes after the makers have decided to give the show 20-year leap.


The actress was quoted saying," I don't want to play a 51-year old woman, for now at least. I am not saying what I will do after 2-3 years in my career. But for now, I don't feel from within that I should age by 20 years in the show. I guess I am already 30-31 in the show now. FYI, I was earlier shown as 22-23 and I did the 7-year leap without any fuss, lekin ab iske aage nahin please."


The actress; who say's that she has not heard back from the makers after she informed them about the decision further went on to say," I can always come on the sets and meet my friends whenever I want. I won't leave on a bad note. So of course, I am attached. But I have been asked to do something jiske liye mera mann nahin maan raha. I wouldn't have left if things hadn't changed. This is the only reason why I have decided to leave."


Considering the fact that Leena's character; Tanu, is the main antagonist of the show, it sure did come as a surprise for the fans of the show as Leena had received great reviews for her acting chops and styling sense on the show. The show also features Sristi Jha and Shabbir Ahluwalia as the lead pair


Well; the unfolding of these events is something that only time will tell; but we certainly shall miss seeing the actress play the chick-modern age vamp!
