While July was a more happening month all thanks to the controversies and buzz, August was more about shows coming and going, apart from the normal entries and exits.

Here's what transpired this month.

The television industry lost 2 actors - Gagan Kang and Arijit Lavania met their untimely death in a road accident. Actor Manish Bisla stepped into Gagan Kang's shoes in Mahakaali: Anth Hi Aarambh Hai, but Arijit's replacement is yet to be finalised.


There were pivotal but, less number of entries in shows this month a few of which are-

Paras Chhabra in Aarambh, Dolly Sohi in Meri Durga, Nidhi Uttam in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, Sudha Chandran in Shani, Angad Hasija in Waaris, Vandana Vithlani and Apurva Agnihotri in Sasural Simar Ka, Ashish Kapoor in Woh Apna Sa, Poonam Preet entered Naamkarann and Rishika Mihani entered Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?
