Diya Baati slotted at Prime time; Gulaal to be axed!

Star Plus' Gulaal to make way for Sumit Mittal's Diya Baati...

Star Plus' upcoming show Diya Baati produced by Sumit Mittal and Shashi Mittal had got delayed because of certain issues between the channel and production house. But now everything seems to be sorted as the show is ready to go on floor.

A little birdie chirps, "Diya Baati was almost ready to go on floor long back, but some or the other issues came up as a hurdle. The cast was also finalized for the show. But it seems the channel was not happy with Hina Khan (a fresh face) who was finalized to essay the female lead in the show. Therefore sticking to the channel's demand, the female lead got changed. And this was the major reason why Diya Baati took long time to come up."

If sources are to be believed, Diya Baati will replace Sphere Origin's Gulaal which is running at the slot of 9. And Gulaal, we hear, will be axed when Diya Batti is ready for launch.

Tellybuzz earlier reported about the finalized cast of the show wherein Anas Rashid will play the male lead and we hear that a new face has replaced Hina Khan as the main lead. Apart from these cast; Ashok Lokhande, Kanika Maheshwari, Anita Kulkarni will be seen in the list of cast.

We contacted Manasi Parekh (Gulaal) to know about Gulaal's future and she said, "I haven't heard anything about Gulaal going off air and I am hearing it from you."

When contacted Sumit Mittal- Producer of Diya Baati, he cleared, "I don't want to talk about this issue until and unless the channel does not give a confirmation."

Producer of Gulaal, Sanjoy Wadhawa said,"When I hear about Gulaal going off air, I will definitely let you know."

Diya Baati's shooting will probably start by next month…
