Itís final: Sonia Balani is the new Pihu
After a lot of confusion and auditioning several actresses, producer Ekta Kapoor has finally got her new Pihu.
Fenil Umrigar, who had entered the show as the lead couple ó Ram and Priya Kapoor's beloved daughter ó a few weeks ago as the grownup Pihu post the seven-year time-leap, will now make way for newbie Sonia Balani. Sonia is currently seen in Suvreen Guggal ó Topper of The Year.
According to reports, Fenil has been replaced as the makers felt that she wouldn't look the part once it has turned negative. Says the source, "Sonia has started shooting and her promo will soon hit the tube. This is a big break for Sonia and she is trying her best to impress the viewers with her acting chops." Incidentally, Akshita Kapoor was almost finalised to replace Fenil but we hear that the channel disapproved of her.
Sonia confirmed the news, ""I will give the character my 200 percent to make it work for me."
