According to our source, "Eleven year old Aaina Mehta who was last seen as the young Shakuntala on Star One's show that goes by the same name has been finalized to play Antara. Apparently, the innocence that's there in Zaynah's eyes is reflected in Aaina's eyes too."
We spoke to Mrs. Shweta Mehta, Aaina's mother who says, "Nothing has been finalized yet. The production house people said they will call us back and let us know about the status."
We contacted producer Mohnish Sekhri who confirms the news. He says, "Yes, we have rounded in on Aaina Mehta to portray Antara after the leap."
