THANKS....










Hi Friends,

Thanks for all the love and support you gave me for my role of Leela Bhabhi in Baa Bahu Baby serial... It has been quite an experience and I have enjoyed every bit of it as much as some of you have done as audiences.... This is to thank you all for your very generous love and adulation....
It's been 4 years now for BBB and I have decided to move on and would not continue with it in the coming season... But I am going to be back with something new and exciting soon after this much needed break...
Do keep in touch, with time on my hand , I would be able to connect with you now....

    noooo, leela bhabhi has to be back... that is a heartbreak to hear that you won't be part of the show, first it was praveena bhabhi, and now leela bhabhi. you are the only person who could carry that role...
    Lubna Salim said...
    thanks dhruv bt 4 years is a long time u see leela also needed sum rejuvenation..it was time 2 move on , bt i promise to b back soon,... ... keeep in touch ,, till then,,,
    Sana said...
    noooo this is really sad to know!!...u shouldnt leave da show...we want u in it ,we want u back n dhruv is rt no1 can play ur role....
    saloni said...
    it is disappointing to know that Leela Bhabhi will not b back on BBB, but as u say, it must hav been difficult to play the same role for 4 yrs...nevertheless, i hope 2 see u in another exiting show soon :)
    tahira said...
    u are right that u were palyingt he same role for 4 yrs but this character and 4 yr role gave u recognition. and if the audience who liked u and appreciated u wants u back u should reconsider ur decission...
    Baabulnaath said...
    Please take a break but dont leave the show....please come back in the same show after a long break...Baa Bahoo aur Baby is not an ordinary show..it cam do without Vaishali...but your role is even more important....
    Please reconsider your decision..
    I used to watch only two shows on TV-- BBB and remote control, But I felt quite sad that the show remote control was a left in between because of the weak channel and all hard work of artists went into the drain...Now I dont want that to happen with BBB...then my TV viewing will come to a standstill!
    Lubna Salim said...
    guys pl.. understand.. thrs sumthing called monotony... if u
    wer watchin t serial regularly thn u wud notice tat my character was going nowhre.in fact it had become quite silly ,lost complete direction.atleast wen vaishali was there gud tracks had come of mine...did u notice that in t last year or more there was not a single track o mine? yess i was there everywhere bt for others.theres no harm in doing that because u cant have focus on just 1 character in bbb. all r very gud n equally imp.bt 4 how long? t feelin was ...like ye hai na kar legi.. that is sahd...there was no growth even in t new season..i cant keep on provin that i can act.. even after puttin my life in this role n livin it 4 4 yrs .. now u tell me . what shud i have dne..
    Sana said...

    pleaseeeeeeee

    Hi Lubna, You have no idea how sad we are to see you leave. I was heartbroken when Vaishali left and now you :(. I read your comments and i really respect your decision. But i would like to tell you that we will REALLY miss you :( BBB will NOT ever be same without you and Vaishali. I will watch the show but BBB mein Lubna to honi hi chahiye.
    We will really miss your charming face and wonderful acting. A lot of people will be very upset and all because WE LOVE YOU :)
    Baabulnaath said...
    Lubna ji I respect your decision...No probs....Even I think that things started going bad at the end of season 1.. I had thoughts in my mind that your character in the show was going nowhere...even baa, meenakshi , gattu, arvind, and many other characters had lost that charm! But I was expecting this to change in season 2.....but as u have said if there was no change in season 2......then u have made a right decision
    I was expecting Jagruti teacher to marry pravin...and i thought that that leela-pravina thing would be back as the character of jagruti teacher appeared quite similar to pravina...but it was very strange to know that BBB2 will focus on young gen.....so all expectations gone in Drain.
    nitish said...
    Hello Lubna ji
    I am surprised tht u r leaving the show, i agree to dhruv first Vaishali Thakkar left n now u... BBB going on a seasonal break itself was a shocking news and now one of the most lovable character would be replaced, I think no one can carry Leela Bhabhi's character better than you, It has been noticed that TRP always go down if one main character is replaced, I wont ask you to change your plans but would love to see leela bhabhi as Lubna Salim next time, no lubna no BBB
    Liberty Moonbeam said...
    I completely agree agree with Nitish-

    NO LUBNA. NO BBB.
    ash,ashi,ashoo said...
    noooooooo please don't.... yeh to nahi hona chaheye........i really like u .....really no one can be better than u........

    Hi Lubna

    Everyone has said that they will miss u .. u should come back but i know you won't change your decision. I just want to tell u dat i see this show daily on youtube(repeat) after coming back from office.
    I loved the pair of leela and pravina like anything.

    I miss that pair a lot .
    i will not see the new series for sure but will continue watching the same.
    BBB is the best. Rite now also my roommate is watching BBB and m listning to leela praveena and meenakshi,

    U guys are the best.

    Love u .

    Hello Lubna, I'm writing this to you from Canada. I'm not too much into Indian Television, however, I just happened to see one of your pictures on a bollywood website, and quickly did a google search on you.
    I just want to say, you're very pretty :)

    Sana said...
    2nd season of baa bahu aur baby started ,though i knew i wont be there but still missed ur presence. it dint feel the same while watching the show. can ya join the show back somehow please??...the new leela bhabi isnt good at givinf facial expressions like ya!
    Sonu said...
    hi Lubna,

    I started watching new season of Baa bahu aur baby n shocked to see a new face instead of u...

    Please be back there. the show looks so dull without u being there. N can u plz tell me if I want to meet you, when can I do so in London? Do you come to London? I m just your fan. I used to see Ek packet Umeed as well n liked ur acting performance so much.. Just as a fan I wanna meet you once n wanna take ur autographs.

    Bhavyata.
    Sonu said...
    hey Lubna,

    I wanna say one more thing. I read all the comments after posting my own comment n came to knwo that ur decision was taken long back. n u were tired of monotonous work n i agree... but u n Vaishali were great pair in the show.. BBB -Vaishali + Lubna now... = zero.. there are versatile actors like Sarita Joshi, Suchita Trivedi n Deven Bhojani.. still the show has lost the main charm of kitchen talks n masti of leela n praveena.. the new actress is trying her best bust can't reach even near to what ur performance was.. i really miss u a lot. i live in London n BBB was the only show i used to watch (on youtube of course), n I used to enjoy u n Vaishali a lot on the show. I miss u a lot.. I am now waiting for ur new Avtar on small or big screen.. wanna see ur perfomance.. I really wish to meet u guys sometimes.
    Lubna Salim said...
    its not t end guys .. i promise il b bck. only waitin 4 t rite roles perhaps.. meanwhile chill.. relax n try n enjoy t show. ..luv u all.. pray 4 me..
    Ayesha Siddiqui said...
    hope we see u soooooooooooon.....
    love u toooo

    American TV series like 'Friends' became cult classics precisely because the cast didn't change over 10 seasons. They didn't think that their roles were becoming repetitive. Yet they went on to become legends. This will never happen in India because first the soaps drag on and on without taking a break. Second, when some brilliant productions like Hats off think differently and do second seasons (e.g. khichdi, BBB), actors like you pull out! Whatever be your reasons, Lubna, it is a huge huge disappointment for the fans. What a let down. A sad sad news for Indian telly. All I can say is that I really hope you don't pull out of a second season of Ek packet Ummeed, if there is one...

    A fan from UK.
    AGENT said...
    I THOUGHT THAT YOU WILL COME BACK IN SECOND SEASON

    BUT NOT CAMED . THE NEW LEELA BHABHI IS NOT A GOOD ACTOR

    I DIDNT LIKED NEW SEASON......
    Sonu said...
    sure, the prayers are always there for u dear. These are Navratri days and I really pray to Goddess Amba for you to fulfill all ur dreams and ambitions. My frnz celebrated Eid today in London n its gonna be there tomorrow, so meri aur se Eid Mubarak aapko n aapki sari family ko.

    1 more request, hw can i directly talk to u? or can email u? can u pl reply me on my email id bhavyata238@gmail.com .

    lots of luv + best wishes,

    Hi Lubna, You are just the best! I have never watched BBB until recently(watching old BBB). And, I am totally in love with your character. You played it with such ease as if it was tailor made for you :). I was just googling your name today cause I was missing you on TV and found your blogspot. I really like your work. Thanks to your blog now I can know about your new shows and play. Keep us posted.

    Best Wishes

    Hi Lubna Ji,
    Absolutely loved you on BBB and I often go on YouTube to Watch the episodes that had your personal storyline and I understand your decision to quit the show. Your character was not going anywhere.
    But I am not only a loyal viewer of BBB but a loyal fan of yours too. So I would love be kept updated about your up and coming projects so that I could have a look at you in different avatars and not only appreciate you as Leela bhabhi but as lubna Salim too.
    I am from Kenya, and yes, people love BBB over here too. My email address is zaara26@gmail.com. I would really appreciate it if you'd give me a shout out. I would be honoured to hear from yOu please.
    Lots of love...

    Hi Mrs. Lubna Salim,

    I am Yasir from Pakistan. I just settled in Canada with my family (wife and a 6 year old kid). We used to watch Baa Bahoo aur Baby in Pakistan. We all loved this serial there. In Canada there is a device called Jadoo Tv in which all the new and old dramas are already recorded and we can watch at any time. One day my wife called me in the store where I work and told me that she found Baa Bahoo aur Baby and she is watching it. I didn't give much response to that. When I went back home and started watching that serial I felt that I am getting involved in that house. I started loving each and every character.I started crying with the people of the house and laughing with you all.I think I can't express my feelings but all the time now even when I am on work I think about all the people of the house. I feel happy when its the time of going home because I will watch Baa Bahoo aur Baby. I love Baa, Gattu, You, Pravina Bhabhi, Meenakshi Bhabhi, Mota Bhai, Pravin Bhai, Subodh Bhai, Harshat Bhai.Yesterday I watched when you pepople came to know that Somail is suffering from Brain Tumor. I cried so much. I really want to come to India and meet as many people of the character as I can. Here some of my co-workers are also from India and they are from Hyderabad. I talked to them about you all and the serial but amazingly they don't know about that. They said that they haven't heard about you people. I was really sad to hear this. But I will definitely come to India after I get my Canadian passport and will meet you at your theater Insha Allah. I am in love with you all people and I can't tell this to anyone because may be they will declare me psycho or mad. But definitely I want to meet you and praise you. Thanks for making it so special for me and reading my comment. I hope you will reply me soon. My e-mail address is jadoon.yasir786@yahoo.com

    Hi Lubna,

    First of all, congratulations to you on such wonderful work every where. Your role in BBB was such a wonder that your absence for once filled in a weird hatred into the hearts of many. Those intricately expressive eyes, and carefully mastered blushing at "Hema Malini" compliment was just unparalleled and deeply missed when you left. But obviously, the best of the things can not last forever.
    While if you ask any fan, he would say you should come back into that role. But just like actors from another show (that I loved as much as BBB) F.R.I.E.N.D.S, your decision was timely and wise! Hope to see more of such iconic roles from you soon..

    A die-hard fan at the other end of the camera

    Ipsita Chakraborty said...
    Would there ever be a new season for BBB again? I kinda miss it.
    Mauliik Doshi said...
    I started watching the show just before 7 days.... episodes between 111 to 139 are very emotional, kind of real.... but after 335 I was getting low... How can somebody bear with a sudden death of an honest person... but still I did continue ... but now I am at about 470... but now I got informed by net that you will not do a LEELA BHABHI in season 2... So Me season 2 nahi dekhne wala.... bcz u r the typical gujju lady.... !!!

    Hats Off to you leela bhabhi....

    season 3 jo bane to aap to usme honi hi chahiye...!!!

    Congrats by the way... for doing such a fantastic character...!!!

    Love from Gujarat...!!!
