The leading vamps of telly land are in conversation with the show-makers who are yet to zero-in on one of them as the main antagonist

Now that things are hunky dory between Jodha Akbar, a new character in the form of Maha Chuchak will enter and create trouble for Akbar. A strong negative character, Maha Chuchak will be Akbar’s power hungry step mom whose aim is to dethrone him. She will be so evil that she will even go to the extent of trying and killing him. Says a source, “For the role of Maha Chuchak, the makers are looking for an actress with a strong negative persona. Sudha Chandran, Urvashi Dholakia and Meghna Malik have been approached.

Currently, talks are on and by the end of this week one of them will be finalised as the track will start soon. It’s a substantial role as she will be the main antagonist.” When contacted, both Urvashi and Meghna confirmed that they had been approached. Meghna currently seen in Ek Boond Ishq said that she had got the offer a few days ago.

“I was going out of the country then and I have just returned.” Urvashi also said that she was abroad for almost a month, and returned two days ago. “I don’t know what’s the situation now but it is always a pleasure to work with Balaji (Ekta Kapoor’s production house.) It’s like going back to my roots,” says Urvashi who became popular with her vamp act as Komolika in Ekta’s Kasauti Zindagi Kay.
