TellyChakkar had earlier reported about Hamari Beti Raj Karegi on Sahara One being scrapped citing budget issues but now we hear that the show will be back but with a slashed budget. The news is that the show has a new face since the channel has decided to replace Aditi Sajwan.
A source informs, “We have settled things with the channel now and the budget issues have been sorted out. The show will now have to be produced with a minimum budget. Aditi Sajwan who was to play the female lead has been replaced since she was not too happy with budget cut...We then approached Akanksha Juneja of Thoda Hai Bas Thode Ki Zaoorat Hai fame who has given her approval and is ready to work with us even with the current budget. We then decided to relieve Aditi.”
Adds another source, “Many other artists of the show also are also being replaced due to the same issue. Initially we had plans of replacing Ravi Bhatia too, however we did not wish to undergo the hectic process of recasting and we have decided to continue with him. Shashank Sharma will continue to play the parallel lead. If all goes according to plan then we should begin shooting from November 8th and the show is likely to go on air on December 3rd.”
While Benaifer Kohli, producer Edit 2 refused to comment on this; Aditi, Akanksha and Ravi remained unavailable to comment.
