Zee TV and Contiloe Telefilms' Jhansi Ki Rani is all geared up for a leap sometime in mid May. The rating of the show has been on a rise, and the channel and production house feel that this is the right time to go for the much-awaited leap.

They were to take the leap after the initial 30 episodes, to make way for the older Rani Lakshmi Bai to be at the helm of things. However, Ulka Gupta's portrayal of Mannu was received very well by the audience, which resulted in high ratings. So the channel and production house had decided to delay the leap by few months.

A little birdie tells us, "The show is doing extremely well now, and we are very much over the 4+ mark in ratings. However, the leap has to come some day or the other, as this is the demand of the script. Hence, the show will be proceeding towards its leap by mid May".

We also hear that the contract of Ulka Gupta too comes to an end sometime in May, and this eases the entire proceeding.

When contacted, Ulka's mother told us, "Ulka's last day of shoot is May 15th".

This will eventually make way for Krratika Sengar to essay the role of Jhansi Ki Rani.

As per our source, "The channel is planning big publicity for the leap, and it looks as though they are already underway with the preparations for shoot post leap, in Karjat".

We tried calling Krratika Sengar, and even sent her a text message but she remained unavailable.

When contacted, Sukesh Motwani, Fiction Head, Zee TV said, "We will talk about it when it is the right time".

Our efforts to reach to Producer Abhimanyu Singh were futile.
