Replacements seem to be all over the place on television. After the biggies right from Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhie Bahu Thi to Kasamh Se to the small minions like Bhabhi and Teen Bahuraniyaan, Zee Next’s Yahan Ke Hum Sikandar now joins the bandwagon.
Iira Soni, the petite actress who replaced Amrita Khanverkar as Roma in Bhabhi, will be seen replacing Freisha Boman, who plays Smriti in Yahan Ke Hum Sikander. Smriti was an out and out negative character who was always up to something against Raima, till she learnt that the latter was her biological sister. With the revelation of this truth, Smriti undergoes a character change and turns positive.
Speaking to Telly Buzz about stepping into Freisha’s shoes as Smriti to play the parallel lead in the serial, Iira says, “Smriti is a very strong personality who knows how to fight for her rights. She now realizes that Raima's parents are her parents and she goes and confronts them. Smriti has been brought up by a family elsewhere till now. She will now stand for her pregnant sister and help her out and try her best to make her life better, as she knows she is responsible for what happened to Raima.”Reporter: Srividya Rajesh
