Kanchi Kaul, the new Soni in Maayka...

It's neither Garima nor Akangsha, as the new Soni in Zee's Maayka will now be Kanchi Kaul of Ek Ladki Anjaani Si fame...


Kanchi Kaul, the face which emerged into television with Sony’s Ek Ladki Anjaani Si, and was later seen in Bhabhi will replace Shilpa Shinde as Soni in Zee’s long-running show Maayka.

We had earlier reported that Garima Bhatnagar was recommended by the production house while Akangsha Rawat was short listed for the same role by the channel. However, it now looks like Kanchi Kaul has bagged the meaty role and has begun shooting for the show from today.

We talked to Kanchi Kaul who confirmed this news saying, “Yes, I am the new Soni. I got a call from the unit, and gave my nod as Maayka is a very good show, and the role is fabulous. I had been on a lookout for something like this”.

For the uninitiated, Kanchi had earlier replaced Rucha Gujrathi as the protagonist in Star Plus’ Bhabhi, though for a brief period of time. When asked on replacing a known actress yet again Kanchi quips, “See, this is a part of the process. I think with time, all will accept the change and move on”.

We talked to Sangamitra Panigrahi, Creative Head, Maayka who says, “Kanci is a good actress, who looks good on screen too. She has her own fan following and it feels great to get her into the team of Maayka”.

On the track ahead, Sangamitra says, “Soni was shown to have gone missing. Kanchi will make her entry when Soni decides to end her life. It is then that Jeet (Romit Raj) will save her and get her back to the family”.

Kanchi’s entry is likely to happen on Monday or Tuesday…

Well, it is now to be seen whether Kanchi is accepted as the new Soni by the viewers!!
