It looks like Karishma Tanna is set for a long second innings with her mentor, Ekta Kapoor. The tall and stunning actress is apparently in the running for the lead female role for supernatural thriller on Star Plus, which will also star Vivek Dahiya. It seems she has replaced Asmita Sood as the first choice. The show is set to air on the channel in the next few months. Seeing the success that rival channels have had with supernatural shows, Star Plus is also keen to have one in their kitty. The buzz is this one is based on Daayans i.e. witches. Vivek has done a supernatural show before in Kavach - Kali Shaktiyon Se while Karishma will be just done from Naagin. Fans will know that Karishma's role is apparently a short one in Naagin 3. She will play the consort of Naagraj (Rajat Tokas) and she will die soon on the show.
In a statement to India Forums, Karishma said, "I don't anything about if I am replacing someone or not. But yes, I am in talks, but things haven't finalised yet." Reacting to this news, Asmita Sood told the portal, "Honestly, I have no idea about this. I was in talks with the production house, but it has been a while, since we have communicated. Till I know, things were looking good, but it has been a while since a conversation happened."
For the uninitiated, Asmita gained quite a bit of fan following as Meher from the show, Phir Bhi Na Maane Badtameez Dil. It was also on Star Plus. Karishma began her career with Ekta Kapoor's Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Stay tuned to BL for more updates...
