Kumkum Bhagya star Naina Singh speaks up about her decision to leave the show, says 'I didn't want to play a negative role'

The show Kumkum Bhagya has been in news for quite some time due to the characters working in it. In an interview with a leading daily, Naina Singh who was a part of the show for so long opens up about her decision of calling it quits. She told the website that the makers offered her a role but did not inform her that it was a negative character and since she did not want to play a negative character in her first show, she decided to leave it.
 
Naina said, "Honestly, I can't sugarcoat. When I joined the show, I wasn't told that my character is negative, and I did not want it to be shown in a negative way because this is my first show. People get typecast as antagonists then. It is hard to change that later. I wasn't ready and did not find it fair as I thought I wasn't informed initially. Secondly, the weightage of my character was not given. Initially, it was supposed to be about two sisters but then I was made out to be one of the characters, there was no story around me, I was just there."
 
She further added, "Everything was not making me happy. I sent them the letter back last year and did not know about the six months notice period. So, I was actually serving the notice period. I wanted to leave the show as soon as I joined. By the end of the day, I wasn't happy. It is just that I made a family there."
