Over the last few episodes, Nitika was seen in loose clothes to hide her baby bump and was mostly seen in a comatose state, due to the track and leap the show had taken. In yesterday’s episode, she was seen getting out of that state to finally reveal the truth about Roop Bua.

Earlier rumour mills were churning about the show to go off air but producer Gul Khan came on record to clear the air. She said, “This is the fifth time, I am hearing this rumour. It comes up every six months. For the fans, I would like to say nothing like this is happening at all.” She further clarified, “We wrapped up the track to not stretch the fake wedding (Shivaay and Pooja) as that was never the plan.”

We eagerly look forward to the arrival of the baby and wish the actress a hearty congratulations!
