This piece of news will surely sadden the fans of Bharat Kaul and Charu Asopa, who were earlier on the headlines to be in the final list of casting in Sony Entertainment Television’s upcoming show Love Marriage Ya Arranged Marriage, produced by Sphere Origins.
But without a valid reason they were abruptly removed from the show at the last minute. Buzz making its way says the reason for this is that the story has been tweaked by the channel. However, the recent development in the script has forced certain changes, and Bharat Kaul’s character, who was earlier roped to play the father of lead Sahil (played by Ashish Kapoor) has been erased.
While on the other side, Charu Asopa, who was last seen in Devon Ke Dev Mahadev on Life OK, was to play the sister of the male leads. But she has also been ousted and the creative team is now looking for a younger face.
Bharat Kaul expressed displeasure saying, “Yes, I have been informed today that I am not needed for the Sony show. The reason given was that with the script change, the father’s role has been removed. I had got many other offers, and to reject an actor after everything is finalized is not done. I ask the concerned people – ‘If an actor had refused to do the show at the last minute, how would they have reacted?’. Anyway, I guess this is part of life.”
Charu Asopa too echoed her sentiments and said, “I am not doing the show anymore. Everything was fixed and I was to start shoot when I was informed that they needed a younger looking face to play the sister.”
All we can say is this is part and parcel of the television industry!
