Latest reports suggest that Pooja Bannerjee of the MTV Roadies fame, was finalized to play the character of one of Archana's (Ankita Lokhande) daughter, but was replaced at the end moment by a newbie. Whereas the character of Pooni, Vinod-Manjusha's daughter will be essayed by Jia Mustafa, last seen in Imagine TV's Bandini.
Sources suggest that," Jia Mustak will now be seen as Pooni Karanjkar post leap and Pooja Bannerjee was finalized but at the last moment, Ekta Kapoor replaced her with a new face, Shruti Kanwar, as she felt Shruti was more suited for the role of Ovi Deshmukh."
It is also believed that the lead role of Archana and Manav's adopted daughter, who will be a doctor by profession, is yet to be cast.
All our efforts to reach Jia and Shruti were in vain!
In the light of these eleventh-hour alterations, all we can hope is that the show lives upto its consistent ratings.
