It was an unexpected shock for the cast and crew of Spellbound Productions and Walkwater Productions' Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya on Star Plus, when Anupam Shyam aka the terrific Sajjan Singh suffered a severe heart attack earlier while shooting few days back on the sets. The actor was admitted to the hospital immediately and the track was changed accordingly to fit the storyline.
A little birdie informs, "Sajjan Singh (Anupam Shyam) will return to the show and he will be shooting within couple of days because at present he is in Pune and due to his ill health the production can't force him to shoot."
"Though he is not all that fit to shoot for long hours, he will be contributing to the show as much as he can. The production house has agreed to shoot with him for a few hours according to his convenience and health, "adds source.
We also hear that Avika Gor currently seen in Colors Sasural Simar Ka and who is fondly known as Anandi of Balika Vadhu is expected to essay a pivotal role in Pratigya.
A source informs, "If all goes well, Avika Gor will be essaying the character of Arushi's (Avantika Hundal) boyfriend's sister. Though she has not yet started shooting her entry is expected after 12 episodes from now."
We contacted Avika Gor's father, but he refused saying, "No, I think there is some mistake, she won't be doing any role in Pratigya."
Well whether Avika Gor comes in or not, is something to wait and watch!
For now, we are glad that the charming Sajjan Singh will be back on screen...
