Sriti Jha, seen as Ganga in "Balika Vadhu", has quit the show and Sargun Mehta will replace her in the "most loved" daily soap, which she has been following since her college days.

Last seen in "Kya Huaa Tera Vaada", the 24-year-old took to microblogging website Twitter to make the announcement.

"Hey guys! I have a news - I am back and this time on one of the most loved show 'Balika Vadhu' on Colors at 8 p.m. as Ganga. Do try and watch," she said in her tweet.

The actress likes the simplicity of her character, but confesses that she is completely opposite to Ganga in real life.

"'Balika Vadhu' is a show that I have followed since my college days. I always wanted to be part of it. The character is very simple and homely and I never thought I would ever be offered such a role as I'm completely opposite in real life... I am looking forward to working in 'Balika Vadhu'," she said.

Sargun made her small screen debut with "12/24 Karol Bagh" and also did "Phulwa". She participated in "Nach Baliye 5" with her actor-boyfriend Ravi Dubey. They were the first runner up on the celebrity couple dance reality show.

In the upcoming episodes of "Balika Vadhu", the focus will be on Ganga and Jagya's love life.

Sargun has started shooting for the show and will make an appearance in Saturday's episode.

    Respect you decision Sriti, you enterd this show when they were fighting with a digaster, and you were the only taranhar who actualy bring the grace in balikavadhu but they always sidlined Ganga and her story. Now when they finds themselfs in a better position they didnt felt to convinced you for stay back just wasted your talent. Any ways great decision will miss Ganga and JaGan alot, but seeing them sidlined hurts more. Best of luck Sriti Jha and pls this time dont take a social issu based character on tv. Tv land cant give justic to these tipe deep and larg characters...

    Loved Sargun as Phulwa and loved Sriti as Ganga. Don't want to mix two talented actors on the same character. Anyway don't care who plays the role of Ganga...Not following the show...

    Sriti will be missed for sure for the essence she has created as character Ganga and great move Sriti.

    not the same, seems to forced and acts like a scared rabbit rather than a quiet girl! gagna was not timid she was shy yet daring, quiet , yet cheerful, strong yet vunerable, fearful yet brave! sargun so far has not being able to do justicve, i loved her as pulwa as bulbul i hated her! but she is too strong personality for ganga role
