Kishwer Merchantt, who played Neeta Adarsh Malhotra’s role on Colors’ show Savitri Devi College Aur Hospital (Rashmi Sharma Productions), has now been reportedly replaced by Kajal Pisal without giving prior notice.
Kishwer recently lashed out at Rashmi Sharma productions, for allegedly replacing her. She was furious to hear about her replacement news from some of her friends in the industry.
She is miffed with the production house for not just keeping her in the dark but also for spreading false rumours about her being incompetent to work because of her leg injury. She has exposed the production house in a hard hitting post on Instagram.
When contacted, Kishwer confirmed the news and said, “This is definitely one of the bad expereince of my life. I have decided I will never work with the production house, Rashmi Sharma Telefilms. I used to travel with a fractured foot to shoot with them and this is what I have got in return. They didn’t even bother to inform me about my replacement. If they can do this to an actor like me who has worked in the industry for so long, then imagine what must be happening to the newcomers.”

“They blocked my 25 days a month and shot for just a couple of days. They would keep me endlessly waiting and when I decided to quit owing to this dissatisfied work they forced me to stay back and now they say they replaced me as I am immobile.This is the worst that they could stoop to.” she added.
Not someone to mince words, Kishwer has always stood up for herself and she claimed that this time too she won’t let it go. “It was a pathetic experience working with Rashmi Sharma Productions. They do not value artistes and their time. Neither did they have a proper sketched role for me nor did they allow me to go. Even when I was injured, I was on sets, and they are now claiming that I have been replaced as I cannot shoot. They do not want to accept that it was me who wanted to leave the show. Also as expected, no one from the team is yet to get back to my messages.”
On being asked, if she is planning to report it to CINTAA, the actress said, “Just like you guys even people from CINTAA read my post and called me. They have assured me that a strict action will be taken against the production house. They told me that noone has the right to behave with an artist in this manner.”
