In a surprising turn of events, Muskan Bamne, known for her portrayal of Paakhi in the popular television series ‘Anupamaa,’ has announced her departure from the show after a three-year stint. The young actor exclusively revealed her decision, citing her reluctance to portray a motherly role at her age as the primary reason for her exit.
Confirming her exit from the show, Bamne expressed, “Yes, I am no longer part of it. I just got the confirmation from the makers.” The 24-year-old actor disclosed that the makers intended to introduce a track wherein her character would become a mother through IVF. However, unwilling to portray such a role at a young age, she opted to step away from the show.
“It was not working out for me. The makers are introducing a track, in which I am supposed to play the role of a mother. They want to show my baby, which would be born through IVF. But I didn’t want to do it as I am too young for this,” Bamne shared. Her decision stems from a desire to explore diverse opportunities without being typecast into similar roles, fearing it might limit her future prospects.
Expressing gratitude for her time on ‘Anupamaa,’ Bamne acknowledged the growth and learning she garnered during her tenure. She reflected, “I was part of the show for three years, and I am thankful for this opportunity because it’s because of this role that I became a household name. I got to learn a lot on the set and become a better performer.”
With her eyes set on future projects, Bamne aspires for a lead role in her next venture, aiming to leverage the recognition gained from her ‘Anupamaa’ stint. “I don’t want to let the name and fame I have earned in the last three years go to waste,” she emphasized. Open to opportunities across OTT, films, and television, the actor remains determined to showcase her acting prowess in a prominent role that aligns with her aspirations.
Bamne’s departure coincides with the evolution of her character in ‘Anupamaa’ from a teenage schoolgirl to a married woman approaching motherhood. Speculations about her exit surfaced post the show’s narrative leap.
As Bamne bids farewell to ‘Anupamaa,’ her decision to pursue new horizons reflects her determination to explore diverse roles and carve a path that aligns with her professional aspirations.
