We had earlier reported that Sreejita De who had bagged the meaty role of the grown up Ichcha in COLORS' show Uttaran will not be part of the show anymore.
If sources are to be believed, the channel had objected to the fact that Sreejita talked about her role openly to media, and this was a big mistake that cost the actress the role.
The buzz now is that the channel has replaced her with Tina Dutta, the bubbly girl who was seen playing the haunted Paromita in the last story of COLORS' Koi Aane Ko Hai. With this decision, it seems that COLORS has had the final say with regards to the casting for Ichcha.
Tina Dutta was earlier seen playing the younger version of Vidya Balan aka Lolita in the movie Parineeta.
We tried calling Pintoo Guha of Film Farm, but we could not get thro' his line.
If sources are to be believed, new promos for the show were shot last Saturday, and will be on air by today evening.
Sreejita De who has made recognition for herself with Star One's Annu Ki Hogayee Wah Bhai Wah was in no mood to talk about this, and said, "No comments".
While Tina Dutta plays the new Ichcha, Rashmi Desai will essay the role of the grown-up Tapasya.
Let's now look forward to the leap in the story, to know how it fares!!
