The pandemic has left a lot of people worrying about their livelihoods, jobs, and most importantly their health. Celebrities and actors are no different. With many notable stars like the Bacchan family, Parth Samthaan and many others testing positive, the fear of contracting the virus is as real as it gets in the Entertainment industry.
But like they say, the show must go on. With the entire county having been under lockdown for many months, the film and TV industry was completely shut down as well. But, now slowly things are coming back to life, with many TV shows having resumed their regular shoot. Ekta Kapoor‘s Kasautii Zindagii Kay was one of the first TV shows to resume shoot. But with Parth testing positive for coronavirus the shoot had to be stalled for a few days. And Erica Fernandes chose to shoot her scenes from home for a while, until, recently that she started coming to sets and moved out of her home for the safety of her parents.
Recently, news of Parth Samthaan quitting the show surfaced. Following which it was said that Erica also may quit the show. While Erica has said nothing about this so far, speculations of who will replace the actress has already begun. While Karan Singh Grover who played Mr. Bajaj was replaced by Karan Patel, new speculations suggested Erica might be replaced by Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya.
Various reports across the internet suggested that Parth was leaving to explore new projects and to take care of his health. But also because the storyline was shifting to focus on Bajaj and Prerna. Parth is allegedly not too comfortable playing a father to a 10-year-old as well.
Taking into consideration that the storyline might shift focus to Prerna and Bajaj, the rumours suggesting Divyanka might replace Erica got stronger. There’s also the fact that Divyanka and Karan were the lead pair of one of Ekta’s most successful show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. So, naturally, fans are eager to see them together on screen again.
But, Divyanka took to her Instagram stories to rubbish all such rumours.
While Divyanka would have been a good choice for the role, looks like we will have to wait and see if Erica will announce her decision to leave. And if that is so, we’ll have to wait a little longer to see who the new Prerna is.
