After Maryaada Lekin Kab Tak? got an extension from the channel, the latest we hear is that Dakssh Ajit Singh is all set to leave the show.

According to our source, " Dakssh Ajit Singh who portrayed the first gay character, Gaurav, on Indian TV is quitting the show as he feels that the character has nothing  to do more with the role. It was a mutual decision between him and the production house to end the character."

We contacted Dakssh Ajit Singh who confirmed the news, " Yes I am leaving the show. It's a mutual decision between production house and me. The reason is that there was no growth in the character. I played the first gay character on TV and there was nothing more left to do. I am now open to take up another role on TV."

Dakssh will last shoot till 25th of Jan.

    But Devyani needs you now, more than ever!!!! I know there isn't much happening with your character now, but we could still make a wave in the ITV industry by showing a wedding b/w you and Karan? Or a live-in situation if nothing else? And in India.

    Come on, everyone needs you now. Devyani needs both her sons now that Brahma is away.

    That's a pity. But you he played a gay character superbly and becoz of his great acting, and his convincing act till now, I am sure it has made a difference in many peoples lives, especially those in daily contact with gays in their lives. I suppose we should accept your decision and PH acceptance for you to quit but to tell you honestly, Maryada won't be the same without you for the next 6 months. Your acting has essence and does not seem an act at all. Hope you have other roles in which we can see your best yet again. All the best in your future endeavours.
