Television actress Reena Aggarwal who plays the role of ‘Prema’ in ‘Star Bharat’ top-rated show ‘Kya Haal Mr Panchal’ has been replaced, after she was bitten by a dog on the sets few days ago.
According to reports, Reena is taking a long time to recover, so the channel decides to replace her by another actress in the show.
If reports are to be believed, Reena was very unhappy with the show and had made up her mind to walk out from it by April 30.
According to sources, “Reena would often throw a fit over her screen time. In fact, she had put in her papers last month and was serving notice. Her exit is amicable. It’s unfortunate that the dog attack happened, and the production house is taking care of her medical expenses.”
When Reena was asked about it, she said, “It’s true that I have not been happy with my track and had even shared my concern with the makers. My character was becoming a tad unrelatable. Can’t an artist, who has worked on several shows, have such disagreements? I discussed it with the creative team and they even assured me that they would work on it.”
“However, I was bitten by a dog and needed at least two weeks to recover. It’s a deep wound and I have been advised against stepping out in the sun. My family is here to take care of me, as my husband is expected to travel abroad for work. A lot of painful things have happened to me and I don’t want to delve too much into it. I will speak at the right time.” she added.
The makers have replaced Reena with actress Patrali Chattopadhyay as Prema. Patrali was last seen in Porus in a cameo role.
