The makers of Sony Entertainment Television’s production ‘Chandragupta Maurya’ have replaced Shefali Sharma with Sneha Wagh at the last minute, to play the mothering role.
According to SpotBoye, Sharma has been accused of being unprofessional and demanding changes to agreements she had already signed for. “Shefali had been locked and was about to start shooting. However, right before starting shoot she wanted to renegotiate on already agreed terms and put out unreasonable demands. She tried to corner the production house being fully aware that the shoot was scheduled the next day,” producer Siddharth Kumar Tewary was reported stating.
He went on to add, “The production house is known to be one of the best in the industry and they refused to tolerate Shefali’s blackmail as they have no tolerance for unethical people and hence they replaced her.”
However other reports suggested this was not the case, where Sharma spoke to other outlets stating she had to leave due to other reasons. “It’s true that I am not doing the show, but there is no truth to the rumour that I made unreasonable demands. We have mutually and amicably decided to part ways due to some unforeseen circumstances. I am sure that we will work together again in the near future,” Sharma was reported stating.
‘Chandragupta Maurya’ is a period drama and the final part of the ‘Porus’ series.
