Sitecore 9.3 JSS

What is happening: Many a time, we are getting 500 from the layout service. In the log we have the following entry:

ERROR Exception during Layout Service RenderItem (configuration: jss, item: /)
Exception: System.NullReferenceException
Message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

When we make any change in the placeholder in the shared layout and publish it, the issue gets resolved. Though this re-occurs after some time.

I have tried by disabling all the components from the final-layout to rule-out any issue with the components.
