The future of Colors' upcoming show Rishton Se Badi Pratha seemed bleak, what with the never ending search to get the main leads. However all is well that now as the channel has finally managed to get the cast they wanted. The latest is that the girl's favourite Vishal Karwal, who by playing the lead in Colors' Bhagyavidhata has gained a lot of recognition, has been chosen to play the lead in Pratha.

Our source tells us, "After Gaurav Chaudhary and Shalini Chandran were replaced even after their promos went on air, the channel was clear that they needed a known face to carry the role. Vishal had in the meantime, put down his papers as he did not wish to continue with Bhagyavidhata, as the show is all set to take for a big generation leap. Hence the channel decided to rope in Vishal for their next big show."

We hear that big names like Rajat Tokas were also considered, but Vishal was always the channel's first choice. It is heard that Vishal had lot many offers in the kitty out of which he has chosen Pratha.

 Our source further says, "Vishal has signed on the dotted lines and is all set to start shoot in a day or two." We hear that a fresh face Neha Saxena, from the Mithibai College will play the female lead.

For the uninitiated, Gagan Malik was signed to play lead earlier, but he opted out due to personal reasons.  After a long search, they zeroed in on Shalini Chandran and Gaurav Chaudhary, with whom the promo was also shot and aired. However, the bad response to the promo prompted the channel to go for another change.

We tried contacting Vishal, but refused to comment. We tried contacting Pearl Grey, of Spellbound productions, but did not get a revert.

I really beg to wonder how can Colors do this...Shalini Natrajan is really good actress...I really liked her in the promos..she seems convincing and not the typical heroine types...Even Gaurav Chaudary, as I remember him in his brief stint in a zee tv show...Its unfair..both are really apt...Moreover an unfamiliar face for the heroine and much too popular one for the hero is a direct contradiction to the reasons stated for the actors removal...perceptionally ppl will still remember him as Vinay...
