Tellybuzz earlier reported that Ali Asgar has quit SAB TV's F.I.R and is geared up to host the new reality show on Imagine, Shaadi Teen Crore Ki.. The latest is that Ali's character in F.I.R was never meant to be a permanent role, but the good response did force the makers to extend his role.
Our source states that, "From January, Ali Asgar was not shooting for any of the schedule for F.I.R as he had many projects pending for which he had no dates. He is also slated to do an Imagine reality show, and all this has forced him to quit the SAB show".
We contacted Ali and he confirmed, "Yes, I am no more part of the FIR team as I have many pending projects for which I need time. Apart from that I have few films in my hand and along with that I am moving into production and my first Marathi movie is due for release. It was a mutual decision taken with the makers of F.I.R, and the production house is fine with relieving me".
We also contacted Bennifer Kohli, Producer of the show to know more on it, "Ali is my favorite actor. He has not quit but his role and character got over as no one apart from Chandramukhi,(Kavit Kaushik), Gulgule (Kiku Sharda) and Gopi (Gopi Bhalla) are permanent in the show. So it was a mutual decision".
Further talking on the replacement, she said, "We have not finalized with the replacement yet but we can also bring back Shiv Pandit if the story line demands."
