Sriti Jha, seen as Ganga in Balika Vadhu, has quit the show and Sargun Mehta will replace her in the popular daily soap, which she has been following since her college days
Last seen in Kya Huaa Tera Vaada, the 24-year-old took to microblogging website Twitter to make the announcement.
The actor likes the simplicity of her character, but confesses that she is completely opposite to Ganga in real life. “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 to her in real life… I am looking forward to working in Balika Vadhu,” she said.
Sargun made her small screen debut with 12/24 Karol Bagh and also did Phulwa. She participated in Nach Baliye 5 with her actor-boyfriend Ravi Dubey. They were the first runner up on the celebrity couple dance reality show.
In the upcoming episodes of Balika Vadhu, the focus will be on Ganga and Jagya‘s (Shashank Vyas) love life. Sargun has started shooting for the show and made an appearance in Saturday’s episode.
