Actor Mukesh Khanna, who is currently seen as Nanu Purushottam Deewan in the TV show "Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara", says daily soaps aren't his cup of tea, and so, this show may turn out to be his first and last.

"These serials and the daily soap atmosphere is not my cup of tea. I've devoted one year of my life to the daily soap, but not more than that. That's why this ('Pyaar Ka Dard Hai...') is my first family-based daily soap and may be last also," the veteran actor said here on Friday on the set of the show.

"Now you may not see me anymore as dada, kaka, chacha or nana because I don't like all this. I got the offer from other channels also but I said no. I've done this (show) for almost one and half years, it's a big thing," he added.

"Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara", produced by Rajshri Productions, went on air on Star Plus in June 2012. It features Nakuul Mehta and Disha Parmar as the lead pair.

Mukesh, who is best remembered for his roles as Bhishma Pitamah and Shaktimaan, also opened up about how he has lost interest in daily soap.

"Somewhere gradually I felt that this (daily soaps) is not my cup of tea...to come here and shoot among the women wearing jhumkas and bindis... I started losing interest gradually. Though I did it, but I was feeling that now I can't do more than this," the 55 year-old said.

His exit sequence will be shot in a "graceful" way, he saud.

"The makers want to show my graceful exit. I (My character) will die peacefully in the show. Nobody in the family will come to know of my death. I will die at night listening to the gramophone," he added.
