As per a recent report in SpotboyE, Rupal was brought in for finite episodes in the second season and the popular character of Kokilaben has been planned for the initial 20 episodes by the showrunners. The makers didn't want to begin the new season without the most important character of the show. Hence, her track was accommodated with limitation.

The actress reportedly signed for the early episodes and based on that, the whole track of Kokilaben in the show was planned. She is said to be exiting the show by mid of November. However, given the impact of her significant character in the show and also her popularity, the makers are trying to extend her stay. Nonetheless, a final call is yet to be made. The actress or the team of the show has not given any official statement on the same, so far.

Meanwhile, Devoleena shared a video on her official Instagram handle, a day after the show went on air.
