It now looks as though the channel and production house have to look for a new male lead for their show!!
Yes you heard it right!! The buzz is that Nishant Malkani who essays the role of Anukalp in the show is on the verge of quitting. The reason for this decision we hear, is that the actor has bagged a plump solo lead movie with a popular banner in Bollywood.
An industry source tells us, "Nishant Malkani has already put down his papers, and is presently serving a notice period. He is likely to get out of Ram Milaayi Jodi by June end or early July. In fact, the actor has bagged a Bollywood film and two movies down South. He is expected to start shooting for the Hindi movie by September".
As far as Ram Milaayi Jodi goes, the buzz is that the character of Anukalp might be bumped off after which a new lead character might enter. However, the channel and production house have not worked out on Nishant's exit track as of now.
When contacted, Nishant Malkani told us, "I do not want to comment on this".
We tried contacting Producer Rajita Sharma and even sent her a text message, but did not get any revert.
While we have to accept that a movie role is the next big growth for a television actor, we also wonder what's in store for Mona and Anukalp in the show now..
