Niti Taylor was ousted from Ghulam overnight when the makers decided to kill her character suddenly. The reason is still unclear, but rumours suggest that Niti was unprofessional, was always hooked onto her phone and did not get along well with her co-stars Vikas Manaktala and Param Singh.
Niti spoke to HT about her sudden exit from the show:
Basically, there was a change in the story line and that’s why my character Shivani has to die. I was not aware that such changes would come up in the story. I had a discussion with the channel and the producers, and I was told about the decision on the same day. It was a little shocker for me, but life goes on. I am sure that the new girl who does the show now will kill it.
She also said that the false rumours being spread about her behaviour on the sets affects her:
I really think they do. One report comes out and everyone picks it up without verifying it, and soon, it’s viral. The next thing you know, people think, ‘She has problems with co-stars. How will she work in our project?’ I am the last one to throw tantrums; you can ask everyone on the set. When people learnt that I would no longer be a part of the show, many co-actors told me that they were sad and didn’t want me to leave.
The makers are now looking for a more popular name to replace Niti and take the story forward.
