Lead actor Avinesh Rekhi will reportedly quit Colors’ flagship fiction ‘Choti Sarrdaarni’ after its upcoming leap.
Times of India reports that the popular series will be going for a leap of 20-years, which will see lead female star, Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia playing the daughter of Meher. Ahluwalia currently plays the role of Meher.
A source told the publication, “The leap will be introduced by the end of this month. Producers Rajesh Ram Singh and Pradeep Kumar are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the new storyline is gripping and engaging. The makers have roped in Vibha Chibber to play the role of a powerful politician, who will emerge as the new antagonist post the leap. We are in the process of finalising the new male lead, who will be paired opposite Seher. Shehzada Dhami will play the grown-up Param Singh Gill.”
The source added, “Avinesh wasn’t comfortable with playing father to Nimrit, who was originally his heroine on the show. Hence, he will not be part of Choti Sarrdaarni post the leap. The track revolving around the lead couple (Meher and Sarab) will wind up. We are also working on Anita Raj’s exit.”
Anita Raaj will also be leaving the series.
