While the fans of Karan Singh Grover have not yet finished partying after getting their handsome hunk back again in Star One's Dill Mil Gaye, there comes this news that the show will get back its original Riddhima i.e. Shilpa Anand.
And now it looks as though there is every chance of Shilpa Anand getting back her prized role. And the reason stated is that Jennifer Winget's contract apparently ends in April, and the actress has expressed her desire not to renew it any further.
According to our reliable source, "The production house asked an actor cum friend of Shilpa Anand to enquire whether she is interested in getting back to the show. Shilpa had a talk with the concerned people thro' a series of text messages, and even expressed her desire to get back to the show. She has also given her quotation to the production house, and is now waiting for them to get back to her".
Our source also tells us that, "It is not only Shilpa Anand who has been approached. Panchi Bora who was last seen in Kayamath is also in talks with the production house for the role of Riddhima. However, a decision has not been taken by the production house and channel".
When we questioned Jennifer about her contract expiring, she said, "I don't know from where these rumours are coming up. My contract is not ending in April, and I am not leaving DMG".
Shilpa Anand on her part confirmed that, "Yes, the production house approached me thro' one of my friends, to get back as Riddhima. I have accepted the offer and have sent them my quotation. They have to get back to me now".
We contacted Panchi Bora who said, "Yes, I have been approached for Dill Mil Gaye. As of now, I am in Australia and will be talking to them once I get back".
We tried calling Palki Malhotra, Script Head, but she remained unavailable.
We now wonder whether the 'suspense' factor that is always a part of all DMG news is actually its USP!
