A little birdie tells us, "This replacement is a result of Ekta Kapoor's instructions. She wanted a known actor to play Richa, considering the depth in the role. Mona Vasu has started shoot and her entry will be aired tonight".
Mona Vasu is presently essaying the lead role in Doordarshan's Hum. She was last seen in Sony TV's Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao when it comes to working in a major GEC.
Mona Vasu confirmed the news to TellyBuzz, "Yes, it is true that I have started my shoot for Parichay. Its a very interesting role, something that I have not played before".
When asked about the apprehensions of not being the first choice for the role, Mona states, "The fact is that I was not offered the role before. I am glad that they chose me to play the role when they were looking for a new option. It's nice to be working with Balaji Telefilms".
We also talked to Madhurima Tuli to know about her side of the story, and she said, "This is news to me. I have not been shooting for Parichay for the past four days. Frankly speaking, I have not been informed about the replacement. I have been waiting for their call".
Mona's entry will be aired in the flashback sequence where Thakral's evil deed to separate Kunal and Richa will be shown.
Here's hoping that Mona does a swell job as Richa..
