"I am glad that I'm back on the show. It's unfortunate that I had left the show, to begin with. I prefer to let bygones be bygones," Smita said in a statement
Smita went public with her protest against the show's producer Ila Bedi's late clearance of her dues. She had even threatened Bedi about enlisting the support of the actors' union and taking action against her if her payment wasn't immediately made.
Bedi had expressed deep resentment over the public humiliation and the actress was shown the door. However, the differences have now been sorted and the actress is back on the show.
"I'd rather not get into what had gone wrong, what's important is that Ila and I have a cordial working relationship again," added Smita, who plays the role of Sunaina in the Zee TV show.
