As we know, the casting for the show has been on for a while now. Known faces like Chaitanya Chowdhury, Shubhangi Aatre, Anjali Abrol, Smriti Kalra etc were approached. However, the channel wanted a mix of experience and freshness in their leads. They wanted a fresh face for the female lead's role and a popular face to play the male lead.
A little birdie tells us, "A new face from Chandigarh has been roped in to play the second sister who is the lead. Another new girl has been finalized to play the elder sister. And talks with Eijaz Khan are on for the lead's role. The news coming in is that Eijaz is interested in taking up the role, and in all probability might be finalized".
Metti Oli is the story of five sisters who live with their father who is financially not sound.
We tried our level best to reach to Eijaz, but were unsuccessful.
Our efforts to get a confirmation from UTV was also futile.
Let's wait to see if Eijaz is the next big name to make a comeback to TV or not..
