We EXCLUSIVELY spoke to Mahek Chahal and the actress expressed how upset she was that she couldn't continue as Manjulika of Kawach due to health reasons...
Just a few hours ago, we had reported how Kawach... Kaali Shaktiyon Se's antagonist, Mahek Chahal has been replaced by Sara Khan. Although, it did come as a surprise for the actress herself as she wasn't aware of the fact that she was replaced, we had a talk with her to get a better understanding of the situation. As you all know, we had EXCLUSIVELY reported that during the shooting of Kawach, before the show got aired, Mahek had a knee injury leading to a ligament tear. While generally people are advised to take complete bed rest, the actress didn't really pay much heed to it as the show must go on.
However, this attitude has taken a toll on her health and especially her knee since the condition of the same has deteriorated. This also raised a lot of concerns for the makers and sadly, they had no option but to replace her. When we approached Mahek on the same, she said, "I don't know if Sara's character will be named Manjulika or not. That is the creative call of the producers. I tried my best to give my cent per cent for the show. Sadly, my leg is not healing as I am not able to give it the rest it requires. I started work just after my accident when I was told to rest and there is hardly any improvement in my leg so far. I have reached a point where I am risking a lifelong injury to my knee if I continue. I need bed rest for an entire month to get well. It is disappointing but being on the harness is very painful. I know people liked my portrayal of Manjulika and I am grateful. I will be back with something as soon as my leg recovers. I am still shooting for the show as of now."
Well, we hope she recovers soon and haunts us with her sexy role as Manjulika! Will you miss Mahek on the show? Tell us in the comments section below! And stay tuned to this space for hot scoops on the same!
