'Kahiin's' Shaina follows Kkusum's footsteps; ditto for Kyunki's new Mandira

MUMBAI: That's right, another leading lady walks out of a Balaji show. But this time on, the issue isn't about the leading lady beings squeamish about playing an older character, in fact she had been playing a younger character than her previous one. But it has more to do with the opportunities on different horizon.

Following Nausheen Ali Sardar decision to quit Kkusum, Mouli Ganguly is calling it a day at Kaahin Kissi Roz (Star plus) and Achint Kaur has quit Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi (Star Plus).

Talking to Ganguly explained, "Of late, I am getting lots of offers from other production houses and filmmakers. Hereafter, for the next three months, I could not give this serial more than six-eight days in a month."

But apparently that is not the only reasons, the girl seems to be irked over the fact that after three years the girl had it. "As a girl, time is running out on me. How long can I go on playing the same character? I am stagnating now. I am bored of playing Shaina, Shaina, Shaina... I want to evolve as an actress. There is more to me than being just Shaina. I have got some offers which I would not like to go on record now, but I am too busy for the next threre months at least. It's gonna be very hectic," she said.

Mouli says she met Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor in this regard. Depite the coaxing, it was decided to part amicably.

On date, Mouli is working on Sahara's serial- Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam, where she essays Waheeda Rehman's role from the old classic film by the same name. Recently, she completed doing her first film- Rituparno Ghosh's Raincoat.

Sweta Salve, who was ousted from Lipstick (Zee TV) some time back has steps into Ganguly's shoes in Kaahin Kissii Roz.

On the other hand, Achint Kaur has opted out because she claims that Balaji Telefilms refused to pay her the amount they had promised they would after she had worked with them for six months. "I had signed a contract with Balaji Telefilms for six months at a rate which was not to my liking. They had promised me that they would raise it to my desired level when the contract was meant to be renewed. But when the time came to honour their commitment, they backed out. They were not ready to raise it by a single penny," she complained.

"Rajesh Parivartan called me and said that the amount could not be raised. This was around 5 February. I requested him to wind up my role before 22 February as I was leaving for the Zee Cine Awards in Dubai. I shot for my last scene, a little before going to Dubai," she concluded.

Ekta won't have to worry much on this walk-out because Achint's character (aka Mandira) has been sent behind bars for plotting a muder. So she is serving life imprisonment for now.

Lets hope thats enough walk out's for Balaji shows.
