New Delhi: Actor Ram Kapoor is likely to leave popular show ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain’ in which he plays a rich businessman.

Ram, a known name on the small screen, is not the quintessential hero. His weight issues added to the charm of his character in the show, which started as the story of a middle-

aged mismatched couple who find love after an arranged marriage.

But a recent promo of a special episode, an integration of ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain’ and ‘Kya Huaa Tera Vaada’, indicates Ram will be at the receiving end of a gunshot, and will

be taken to a hospital. But doctors inform his family that they couldn't save him.

Asked about his rumoured exit from the show, Ram told IANS: "No comments."

When IANS contacted his wife, actress Gautami Kapoor, she too refused to give a direct comment.

However, a source revealed that "Ram is leaving ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain’. Maybe he wants to concentrate only on his film career that is why he is walking out of the show."

Well, the news could be a strong possibility, considering the sudden barrage of films he has in his kitty.

After featuring in films like ‘Udaan’, ‘Agent Vinod’ and ‘Student Of The Year’, Ram will now be seen in Yash Rah Films’ ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’ and in Asha Bhosle's first acting

project ‘Maaee’.

The episode showing Ram being shot at by Anushka Sarkar, a character from ‘Kya Huaa Tera Vaada’, will go on air on December 4.

However, Ram's exit from ‘Bade Achhe Lagte Hain’ could be a big blow to the Ekta Kapoor’s show, which features actress Sakshi Tanwar as Ram's wife Priya.

The soap, which airs on Sony, is currently at a crucial juncture, considering an ongoing custody case between Ram and Priya for their daughter Pihu.

The show took a five-year leap earlier this year and completed a successful run of 300 episodes earlier this month.
