Sreejita De, who had earlier played the lead in Star One's Annu Ki Hogayee Wah Bhai Wah and Rashmi Desai, of Pari Hoon Main fame have bagged meaty roles in one of the top rated shows of COLORS, Uttaran.
According to our source, "Ichcha's role will be played by Sreejita while Rashmi will essay Tapasya's role. Ichcha who has had dreams of changing her fate and live happily grows up to be a simple yet beautiful girl, while Tapasya will be the glamorous and self-centred girl".
If sources are to be believed, the girls will fall in love with the same guy as the story proceeds. The focus will also be on the changing shades of friendship between Ichcha and Tapasya based on various situations they face in life.
The post leap shoot will start from the first week of May, and the leap will be aired soon after IPL, probably in the last week of May.
"There was also a buzz of Uttaran being changed to a time slot of 7, but the last few weeks have been very good in terms of numbers for the show, and this in fact might prompt the channel and production house to stick to the present 10 PM slot", adds our source.
It is also heard that the channel is working out a good promotional strategy for the leap of Uttaran, and hoardings of the girls will be put up soon. Also, the title track will be shot with the leading girls in the next few days.
We tried calling Sreejita, but she was unavailable for comments. When we called up Rashmi, her family member took our call and gave us the news that the girl has been unwell for the past one week, and will not be able to talk.
We tried to call Producer Pintoo Guha, and even left him a text message, but we got no reply.
Even though the little girls in the show will be missed, the leap will surely be welcomed by viewers!!
