Popular TV actor Mohit Sehgal, who got married to actress Sanaya Irani this year is in the news again, but for not a very good reason. The actor, who has been playing the lead of the TV serial Sarojini is now out of the show. The makers insist that this twist was always the part of the plan, but Mohit insists otherwise. Here’s what he said in a statement to Bombay Times.
I was kept in the dark. I learnt about it only while reading my death sequence in the script recently. The production house had been conducting look tests for the new hero for some time. It’s so strange that the one who is being bumped off is not even informed about it. I am a thorough professional and would have still shot my portion had they told me about the change in the story in advance.
When asked what the reason could be, he elaborated –
Perhaps to add some kind of shock value to boost the ratings. A few weeks ago, they told me about a possible time leap and I refused to be part of it. I don’t think I should play a father so soon in my career.
