Although her ‘Colors’ show “Balika Vadhu” was her claim to fame which made actress Pratyusha Banerjee a household name and an overnight star, she had to leave the show mid-way due to some personal problems with the channel and the production house.
Waiting for something interesting to come her way, Pratyusha has now been approached by a rival channel for featuring in their new upcoming show. The show is expected to go on the floors in a couple of month’s time with a grand launch. Talks with Pratyusha are on for essaying the female lead along with actor Vatsal Seth who plays the male lead. It seems that Pratyusha is being offered a substantial pay package for agreeing to be a part of the show.
Pratyusha’s case is similar to that of actress Giaa Manek, who had to quit her popular ‘Star Plus’ show “Saath Nibhana Saathiya” half way, where she was essaying the character of Gopi Bahu. The reason for Giaa quitting the show was due to an offer of participating in the dance reality show of a rival channel which did not go down well with ‘Star Plus’. Currently Giaa is seen in SAB TV’s “Jeannie Aur Juju” a comedy based show.
