Its been only few months since Star Ones Annu Ki Hogayee Wah Bhai Wah has been on air, and here we see a major twist in the tale, as the male protagonist, Dev Keswani, who portrayed the character of Ashu, has been sacked by DJs Creative unit.

The actor to get lucky with this role is Amit Verma of Kittu Sab Jaanti Hai fame. This sudden replacement has left the Annu team in utter shock and despair. Telly Buzz spoke to the team of Annu Ki Hogayee Wah Bhai Wah on the replacement.

Persis, the Creative Head of DJ's stated, "We needed a more mature actor to perform this character. Dev was very petite for the role, which did not go well with the character. Also, we wanted a better face too."

While the creative confirmed this news, the female protagonist of the show, Sreejita Dey (Annu) was in despair when she heard the news. "Dev was a great co-star and we're all going to really miss him. This was a decision taken by the channel; the production house tried every which way to save him, says the lively Sreejita.  She further adds, "Dev has truly done a great job, and I am sure he's going to go places, and I want to wish him the very best."

Mukul Chhablani, who plays the role of Ashu's younger brother states, "Dev was like a brother to me, and I am going to miss him a lot. I respect the decision taken by the seniors. But the brotherhood that Dev and I shared is never going to change."

Next, we contacted Amit Verma who is all set to get into the shows of the character. The actor is already in awe of the character, Ashu and is very happy about the make-over that he has received to fit into the bill. Yes, its true that Ill be joining the Annu team as Ashu, confirms Amit. He further added, DJs is known to always present something new and innovative to the audience. They tried a couple of hair styles on me, and theyve given me a never-before-seen look for this character.

On replacing Dev, Amit quoted, I really do not know what happened, and its unfair for me to butt in and talk of the decision taken by the channel and the production house. The actor ends by stating, I am going to continue with Baa Bahu aur Baby as well. And regarding Annu, I am sure the audience is going to love the new look for mine, and am truly looking forward to it

    What to say I m really happy for AV entering show but then channel could have been sweet to Dev for old time sake n give some sensible excuse rather then just insulting him, I wish good luck to Dev for his future plans
    ANd as for AV I m just too happy haven't seen show but will start seeing it now
