BADE ACCHE LAGTE HAIN: Did Eijaz Khan’s ex-girlfriend axe his entry into the show?

Rumours are rife that the actor lost out on the show because of Anita Hassanandani

Eijaz Khan’s fans are disappointed that a plum role he was supposed to play in Bade Acche Lagte Hain has gone to IPL anchor Sameer Kochhar. They couldn’t believe the excuse being given by Balaji Telefilms saying that Eijaz didn’t quite fit the part ‘coz he looked older than Priya (Sakshi Tanwar).

Digging deeper into the whole maamla, we heard rumours that it was Eijaz’s ex-girlfriend actor Anita Hassanandani who stopped his re-entry to the Balaji fold. Knowing how close Anita is to Ekta Kapoor, we might just bite into this piece of gossip. But we wonder if Anita has the power to convince her producer on who could act in her shows and who couldn’t. That’s a bit too much to ask, right?

Eijaz maintains that his relationship with Ekta is still good. We’re not sure about his deal with Anita, though! What do you think?
