Balika Vadhu: Sargun replaces Sriti Jha as Jagya’s love interest


Replacement in telly soaps are quite common now-a-days and now the latest to get replaced is Sriti Jha of ‘Balika Vadhu’. After Pratyusha Banerjee being replaced by Toral Rasputra, the popular telly soap is gearing for another replacement and it is now Sriti Jha who played Jagya’s love interest.  

It is heard that Sriti is not quite happy with her character and was planning to quit the show for a long time but she could not do it due to the contract that she has signed. Now, the contract period is over and Sriti has been replaced.

Sargun Mehta who was last seen in ‘Kya Hua Tera Vada’ starts shooting for the serial from November 1st.

Asked Sargun about replacing Sriti and she said, “I am not fond of replacing anyone. The audience connects with certain characters and the actors portraying them. I hope they accept me.”

Sargun said she is quite opposite to the character of Ganga. Sargun said she is very talkative and can’t keep silence. “It will be a huge challenge as I can’t keep my mouth shut. I am hoping Ganga becomes more vocal on the show,” she says. 

Sargun Mehta loved ‘Baika Vadhu’ and she has been watching it since her college days. “I never saw myself in such a role. I was wondering if I’d be able to pull it off. But here I am, and I’ll make the most of this opportunity,” she says with a smile.

"'Balika Vadhu' is a show that I have followed since my college days. I always wanted to be part of it. The character is very simple and homely and I never thought I would ever be offered such a role as I'm completely opposite in real life... I am looking forward to working in 'Balika Vadhu'," she said.

The 24-year-old took to microblogging website Twitter to make the announcement. "Hey guys!  have a news - I am back and this time on one of the most loved show 'Balika Vadhu' on Colors at 8 p.m. as Ganga. Do try and watch," she said in her tweet.

Sargun debuted with ‘12/24 Karol Bagh’ and was seen in ‘Phulwa’. She participated in ‘Nach Baliye 5’ with her actor-boyfriend Ravi Dubey. They were the first runner up on the celebrity dance reality show.

In the upcoming episodes of ‘Balika Vadhu’, the main focus will be on Ganga and Jagya's love life.
