is not doing the show now. Noted Marathi actress Jyoti Joshi
has been roped in to essay the role that Rekha
was to play earlier".
Jyoti Joshi is a very good Lavni dancer, and has been seen in movies like Gallit Gondhal Dillit Mujra.
As reported earlier by TellyBuzz, Saurabh Pandey
will be playing the lead in the show, new face Poonam will play his love interest. Kabir Bedi
, Ashwini Kalsekar
, Mohit Raina
, Sanjay Nath
, Leena Jhumani will be playing pivotal roles.
Ganga Ki Dheej is a story set in the backdrop of Banaras wherein the young girls who come of age are made to spend a night with the Thakur of the village. The show is the story of a mother who struggles hard to save her daughters from getting forced into this sinful practice.
The promo of Ganga Ki Dheej is on air right now. The show is expected to launch in the second week of September. The channel is planning a lavish promotional campaign for the show, which will involve many big faces of television. The shoot of the show is presently taking place in Karnataka.
