trying to take another actors place is actually very difficult. No matter how good of a actor you are. Priya has already created Mona's character, the bubbly, hyper always happy character, with certain signature moves or words, like "by god". people that have watched the serial from the start have become use to priya and the character she became. So now that Sara is playing Mona, those certain characteristics Mona created can not be ignored, Sara has to attempt to bring that out in Mona's character. It will take time to perfect it the way Priya had, because she was the original creator. Its not like Sara is starting with clean slate, her character was already built and she has to take it from there. If she had played Mona from the start and was replaced with Priya, I am sure everyone would have been saying the same thing. Each actor gives their character a special something a x factor, which is hard to replace. If any of you watched KKusum, the main lead was changed so many times, but nothing was ever as perfect as the first KKusum, however that didn't mean that we didn't like the rest, actually they all made a space in our hearts also. So its harder then we all think to replace or start in the middle of a serial. Because the standards are already set, you can add a bit of your own style but u must adapt the old standards as well. So give Sara a chance, she will for sure add her own charm to Mona's character.
