Amar Upadhyay reveals the reason behind quitting ‘Kyunki… Tum Hi Ho’
Amar Upadhyay was quite excited about his new show Kyunki…Tum Hi Ho (KTHH), which launched in December last year was also producing the show. The actor has now quit the show and is no longer associated with the production house either.
Talking about it, in an interview, Amar said, “Yes, I quit the company three weeks ago and exited the show around that time. My partner and I had creative differences even before the show went on air. However, I continued to be a part of the project hoping that issues would get resolved with time. Our vision for the company was different and it seemed best to part ways.”
He added, “The show has been close to my heart. I was involved in the casting and other production aspects, right from the beginning. In fact, I had met the channel officials who commissioned the show based on my narration. They were adamant that I should play the lead but I was skeptical initially because I was also producing it. But, eventually, I agreed.”
When asked if he will return to the show if the channel asks him, he replied, “I don’t want the show to suffer at any cost. As per the original storyline, my character is supposed to return from the dead. If my returning to the show can help, I will do it for the faith the channel showed in me as a producer.”
The good thing is that the experience hasn’t deterred Amar from going ahead with his production aspirations. “I have revived my wife’s production house and we are approaching every medium possible with interesting concepts,” he concluded.
