Star Plus show ‘Imlie’ has managed to make a special place in the viewers’ heart. The show is riding high on success and has been one of the most watched shows across channels. The show is produced by Four Lions Private Limited and has a stellar star cast including actors like Gashmeer Mahajani, Sumbul Touqeer Khan, Mayuri Deshmukh, Vishwa Gulati among others.
One of the prime character from the show Nidhi played by actress Aastha Agarwal has been missing from the show since quite some time. India Forums ringed Astha to know her whereabouts, she stated that she has exited the show. In a candid chat, Astha revealed, “Well, I have exited the show. It was a mutual decision. It all started when the production crew shifted to Hyderabad for shoot. I wasn’t really comfortable to travel and take the risk when the pandemic was its peak. I informed the makers about my decision and they were OK with it. The shoot in Hyderabad went for around two months. We thought it would be for less time. However, when they returned to Mumbai, my character had already lost the graph. The makers eased me and told me that I can look for other opportunities”.
When asked about her journey in ‘Imlie’, she said, “Oh! It has been a great experience. I remember my previous show ‘Shubh Aarambh’ went off-air due to pandemic and then during lockdown, I got a call for ‘Nidhi’ in ‘Imlie’. They asked me to send a self-test which was a big deal for me. I bought a tripod and did a self-test and was immediately locked for the show. I was a bit skeptical to shoot amid pandemic but the makers made sure I was comfortable and they took all the necessary precautions which made me comfortable to join the cast. I had a ball of a time shooting for the show. It was too much fun. ‘Nidhi’ is totally like me and hence I never had to ‘act’ act. I wouldn’t mind joining the show again”.
