Many hearts broke when actor Hina Khan aka Akshara announced her exit from popular daily soap Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. But her fans might get some happiness. If reports are to be believed, there are talks that Hina will be seen playing the lead role in Color’s upcoming series Chandrakanta, which is being made under the banner of Balaji Telefilm.

Chandrakanta is the adaptation of the famous novel Chandrakanta, which inspired a TV series by the same name, on Doordarshan in the 1990s. When asked about the reports concerning her casting on the show, Hina put a no comments reply. “I don’t want to comment on this right now,” the actor told

In a recent interview, Hina had said that she was looking forward to having a good break considering she worked on Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai for seven years. So, it will be interesting to see if the actor will ditch her break for Chandrakanta. Given a thought, it’s actually not a bad option. First of all, the show is riding high on nostalgia for almost every 90’s kid. Secondly, it is being helmed by the biggest television production house, Balaji.

From Rajan Shahi, the producer of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai to Ekta Kapoor, it would be a great professional jump for Hina. Also, after becoming a household name by playing lead character Akshara, the titular role in Chandrakanta is a great opportunity for her.
