Shamin Mannan who is seen in the two shows of Shakuntalam Telefilms, Star Plus' Santaan and Zee's Banoo Main Teri Dulhann has taken ill and was reported to be critical recently.
Shyamashis Bhattacharya, Producer, Shakuntalam Telefilms says, "Yes, Shamin is not feeling well, but I have no idea what is exactly wrong with her. Her character of Neha in Santaan will be replaced, while in Dulhann we are not working on her track, so will keep her out of the story till she gets back".
According to Pooja, Creative Head of Santaan, "The character of Neha was important as the track was very much around her. So we had to go for a replacement, and Shweta Barupal who plays the role of Deepika in Chhoti Bahu will be entering soon".
We called Shamin's number hoping that we could get more about her condition. Fortunately, a relative of the actress answered our call and accepted that Shamin was very ill. "She had a severe food poisoning that has weakened her a lot. She has been advised by the doctors to take complete rest for another 2-3 weeks. We have informed the production house and the channels. Let's see whether they wait or not", quoted the relative.
On asked about Shamin's present condition, he said, "She was in the hospital, but has been discharged now. She is on the road to recovery, but it will take some time before she gets back to acting again".
In Dulhann, Shamin played Aditi, the wife of Bharat Singh aka Mohit Mallik. In Santaan, she played wife to Shubh (Gaurav Khanna) and suffers from acute memory loss and does not identify even her family and husband.
Well, we wish the actress a speedy recovery and hope to see her back in Dulhann at least, in the near future!!
