The Sasural Simar Ka actor had reportedly quit the show due to creative issues
On hearing about Samson’s exit, many aspiring actors certainly got their hopes up high to be the next Simar in T-town, as auditions were held to cast the same. However the hunt soon ended, with reconciliation between Samson and the production team.
So what brought the actor back? An inside source from Sasural Simar Ka said “Dipika did bid her final adieu to the actors and unit members last Friday (May 9). And of the many known names short-listed, the channel and maker did finalise on Sonali Nikam to step into the shoes of Dipika as Simar. But Dipika apparently developed cold feet, and got very emotional to move on from the Simar family. Everyone on the set was shocked and amused to see the lady report on set yet again today. It is heard that she had got into talks with the channel and makers, post which the actor decided to stay put. And of course, Dipika is happy with the creative changes that have been promised. Also, Dipika has got a monetary hike by deciding to stay on.”
