Russhad Rana and Ankita Bhargava were to play the very much-in-love couple Chirag and Ritu in Dill Mill Gayye. When Telly Buzz talked to Rushad to get to know on his character few days back, the actor had confirmed that his role will be for four episodes.
But ultimately, things did not work out for the actor and he had to deny the offer. This eventually paved way for the dashing Shaleen Bhanot to take over the role in quick time. “I had agreed to do the role, but eventually I found out that the date of shoot clashed with the shoot of my upcoming film ‘Dooriyan’. Hence I was forced to back out. But I would love to take up a role in future in this unique youth-oriented show”, quotes Russhad Rana when contacted today.
Shaleen, the actor who stepped in at the last minute says, “I got a call from the Creative Head of Dill Mill Gayye, Amita Devadiga at 12.30 in the night. She is a very good friend of mine and she requested me to give her four days’ time as she had a cameo role for me in the show. I had to begin shooting the very next day and I could not refuse the offer. Above all, this is one serial I have loved to be part of as it is so youthful and fresh”.
The couple enters the hospital as Ritu is expecting her first child. However, there is a twist in the tale as Chirag suffers from brain tumor. According to our well-placed source, “This is the first time that the interns face such a serious case in Sanjeevni. Chirag’s is a very complicated case wherein he is battling death and will not survive if not operated quickly. But the chances of him losing his memory after being operated are very high. The couple is so deeply in love that both are ready to sacrifice for each other. While Chirag prefers not to live a life forgetting his wife and kid, Ritu wants her husband to be operated and is even ready to live a life alone if he loses memory”.
Adding further, the source says, “This intense love of Ritu-Chirag will eventually create problems between Armaan-Riddhima as they tend to compare their love to the couple’s love”.
So get ready for some intense drama in the very popular serial, Dill Mill Gayye...
