Akanksha Puri Was The Initial Choice Instead of Rashami Desai For 'Naagin 4'

Actress Akanksha Puri was initially approached for the role Shalaka which is now played by Rashami Desai in Colors TV popular show Naagin 4...


Colors popular show Naagin 4 has been in news lately. After the recent news coming out that Sidharth Shukla will be entering the show, we India Forums exclusively reported where Sidharth Shukla clearly denied the news.

And now the latest news we hear of the show is that Akanksha Puri was initially approached for the role Shalaka which is now played by Rashami Desai. 

Yes, you heard it right!

When contacted Akanksha Puri, she confirmed the news saying, " But yes when I got a call from Balaji they told me about this new track, they didn’t tell me they are planning to replace anyone, I asked them that they already have jasmine and frankly they nowhere even gave me a hint that it’s about replacing someone and I also took it lightly as the show already had two strong names. How will they have a third as the parallel lead, they didn’t reveal anything over the phone and told me to come to the office and talk to them face to face. They wanted to shoot after three or four days itself and they clearly told me they have few names in mind and have to lock someone asap. I told them even if I leave my show I have to serve 30 days to notice period and if I shoot with Parvati I can give max twelve days a month but their requirement was for a minimum of 20 to 25days. Things didn't work out. But I would love to do something like this in the future and I am looking forward to work for Balaji. Also, I feel lucky that they at least considered me for this role and I have seen Rashami, she looks stunning and is doing a fabulous job !! She is the perfect choice for Naagin."
