Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata has been in news recently for Karan Mehra’s exit from the show. But now the longest running show on Indian television is rumored to go all out by shooting at a foreign location post its much hyped and most awaited five year leap which took place last month. Though the makers have added a lot of twists and turns in the show post the leap, the viewers are feeling let down because of Karan Mehra’s exit and this special shoot seems to be a way to pay back to the loyal fan base.

Yet another outdoor shoot for Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai

This is not the first time the show has been shot outdoors apart from their sets, but Switzerland is a first since foreign shoots on Indian Television are quite rare due to the cost constraints.

The plot for which Switzerland is being chosen as the location will showcase Mohsin Khan’s character Karthik , Shivangi Joshi’s character Naira and Kanchi Singh’s character Gayatri i.e the young brigade of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. There is yet no official confirmation on the destination of the special shoot from the makers themselves but since the show had earlier shot in Cape Town and Hongkong, Switzerland seems to be the next exciting location.

Karan's exit disappointed a lot of fans

Karan Mehra’s exit from the show post a long association of seven years created a lot of waves recently with many of his diehard fans even threatening to stop watching the show if he wasn’t brought back. His exit not only disappointed his loyal fans but also angered them largely. Though Karan through his social media posts cleared that his exit was a result of his health problems, rumors still believe that it was a result of his long time cold war and fights with his co star Hina Khan who plays Naitik’s wife Akshara on the show.

Amidst all the tension and drama which unfolded post his exit, a special foreign location shoot seems to be a great idea to keep up the ratings of the show.

All we can hope is that the Switzerland shoot brings the show to normalcy and keeps the fans of the show happy and content. The showairs on Star Plus Monday to Friday at 9.30 pm IST.
