Kavita Kaushik quits FIR

Kavita Kaushik, who shot to fame with her show FIR, playing the role of Haryanvi cop Chandramukhi Chautala, has now quit the show. She recently signed on a new series Tota Weds Maina (TWM), which is a daily on the channel and says its becoming tough for her to manage the two simultaneously. Post
Kavita's departure from the show, FIR will take a leap and Chautala's daughter will be the lead now.

On being contacted, Kavita confirms the news saying, "Yes, I have quit. The decision was taken when I signed TWM because it was a big commitment doing two lead roles at the same time. I was in talks with the channel and producers to do something about my character Chautala and we came up with an amicable solution."

A source reveals, "Last year Kavita wanted to leave the show as she wanted to do something else, but the makers almost doubled her pay and so she stayed on. The channel knew about her desire to try a new show and they offered her TWM. Kavita loved the idea but she told them that she won't be able to do two dailies at the same time. That's how FIR was made into a weekend show and TWM a daily but it was getting tough for her to shoot both, so Kavita told them that she can only do one and opted for TWM."

The producers have already cast the new lead. "Chitrashi Rawat, of Chak De! India (2007) fame, is being considered for it. Kavita has already shot the leap scene. Aamir Ali and two others surely won't be in the leap but Gopi (Gopi Bhalla) might be retained."

Thanks for posting this!

Two others - that means Kiku (mentioned in the TOI article) and possibly Sandeep Anand (who plays Billu).

Oh man!!

I don't have words...

So sad !Ouch

Lately FIR wasn't the same with actors like Kavita and Amir Ali looking disinterested and it was obvious that their together scenes being shot solo many a times. I suspected that the show will close down. But the leap was unexpected. I don't know how to take this news. But I am willing to give it a try. 

For me, FIR will always remain special with CC, BP, Gopi, Gulgule and Billu.

Actually, I disagree that FIR had become less interesting.

Yes, it's true that it's become more noticeable lately that Kavita or Aamir are doing their shots solo separate from the group. But sometime around late September October, the scripts and the gags again picked up (for me at least). And I've been thoroughly enjoying almost every episode with several laugh out loud moments.

They did go thru a slump in early to mid 2012 tho'. It's when Billu had just come on. And GG was temporarily gone and the chowki shifted and stuff. And somewhere during that time, they seemed to become less interesting. 

I remember I think the episode where Naveen Bawa played the pirate Jack Sparrow take-off character as being a major turning point for me. Tho' some of the earlier episodes were probably also good, but it was during those eps that I realized that FIR is back at close to it's best levels. 

Too bad, it's not going to last with everybody going to leave.

I just hope the FIR group give it a really rousing farewell. Top-notch writing, plot, and every actor just delivering top quality stuff.
