"I have two offers in hand - one from Sony and one from Zee"

Says Angad Hasija as he moves on in life after the Savitri fiasco.

Angad Hasija was recently in news because of his sudden ouster from the show Savitri on Life OK. While Angad claimed that he was not happy with how his role had shaped, the channel maintained that Angad's character was not a main lead but still a prominent role.

However, Angad seems to have moved on in life and wants to forget the bitter past, "I have been offered two shows - one on Sony and one on Zee. While one is an ongoing show, the other is a new show but both are main leads" says Angad.

Angad last shot for Savitri on Saturday, 6th April and recounting that day, Angad says, "I was totally exhausted on the last day of the shoot. They made me shoot for more than 24 hours non-stop."

Talking further about the recent controversy about Savitri on Life OK, Angad reveals, "When I was offered Savitri, I also had an offer from Bigg Boss Season 6 which I had to decline. I was told that my role and the serial would become big names in the Television industry which never happened. I was not given a Minimum Guarantee (MG) which is basically a payment guarantee so even if an actor doesn't shoot for the show he gets paid. I was at a loss because of this as I shot for only 15 days in three months (October, November, December) and then not a single day in January and only one day in February."

Elaborating further he says he wasted time due to this while also losing out on other assignments, "I was offered 2 big banner Punjabi films in January. I kept on asking for the MG but they never gave me one and finally in the month of January they told me to take up another show which was unacceptable to me. I have always done one show at a time and always work on my looks and give 100% to whichever show that I am doing whether it was for Bidaai, Phulwa or Ram Milayi Jodi. For Savitri too I maintained a chiseled body, grew my hair and beard for the perfect look."

About the charges that his was never a main lead, Angad says, "I have always played the main lead and nothing less so why will I play a cameo? I am never short of roles and when I signed for Savitri I was clearly told that the character of Satya will die in the 2nd episode itself which never happened. I was left out of the promotions, press conference and the hoardings of the show."

"I have been in the industry for the past five years but never faced any problems till date with any channel regarding my role or the payment. This is the first time that such a thing happened with me wherein initially I was promised something but it turned out to be something else."

All this left Angad hurt and traumatized, "As an actor this was a very disturbing experience. It was with Star Network that I started my career with Bidaai and I trusted them blindly since Life OK is also their channel. They were like family and if this is the way a family treats you in this industry then I think I have to be very cautious before accepting any new show."

Well, we hope Angad leaves the past behind and starts afresh with the new shows in his kitty.

So sorry angad cnt believe such a talent like u got treated like that. Shameful behaviour by that channel. Bt u will go on to bigger and better things in life dnt worry u to talented to be a 2nd lead of anything and heard that show isnt even doing well so take it as u got saved from doing a stupid show and saved your fans from watching crap. Bt really if this is the way these channels are going to act i hope that u get a bollywood offer soon coz u too talented for tv.

Savitri is a fantasy show ,It is something different . We shall appropriated that ,but It would have been much better to see Angad as a lead than Yash ..

Go to hell Life ok...This is not the first time the crap channel has played such dirty games...they have done this before with Harshad Chopra n Sriti Jha and now with Angad..i'm waiting for the day when this channel gets a taste of its own medicine..

All the best for your future Angad..u'll get what u deserve in other better channels...Life ok is the loser to lose another talented actor like u...
