OMG!! Giaa Manek replaced overnight...Devoleena Bhattacharjee is new Gopi Bahu..

Viewers of Star Plus popular show 'Saath Nibhana Saathiya' to witness a drastic change with Giaa Manek being replaced overnight in the show. We are sure, this piece of news will come as a shocker and blow the minds of loyal viewers of Rashmi Sharma's show..

Giaa Manek, who is essaying the role of Gopi Bahu has been replaced in the show. Well, why? The petite actress decided to participate in the fifth installment of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, which is scheduled to be aired from 16th June onwards. That didn't go down well with Star Plus, and at the drop of a hat Giaa was shown the door.

We heard, "Star Plus initially allowed Giaa to participate in Jhalak on rival channel. But later, they asked her not to take part in the dance reality show. However, the actress clearly told them that she has not broken the terms of her contract and is eligible to take part in Jhalak. Finally, the channel took a drastic step and decided to replace her."

Star Plus issued a statement saying-"Starting tomorrow, June 7th, one of STAR Plus' longest running shows, 'Saath Nibhana Saathiya' will see a new face essaying the role of 'Gopi Bahu', the lead protagonists of the show; which has been played by Giaa Manek since its launch. The association with Giaa Manek has however been discontinued with immediate effect, due to unprofessional conduct and breach of contract from the actor's side."

While everyone is speculating on who is going to replace her, here we are letting the cat out of the bag. Devoleena Bhattacharjee, who was last seen in Imagine TV's Preeto has been roped to play the Gopi.

When contacted, Devoleena was over the moon and said, "Yes, I am new Gopi bahu and I have already started shooting for the promo."

Although, Giaa's decision to shake a leg in Jhalak costs her an arm and a leg, she is very confident that it would not affect her future. "I don't want to comment at this point of time. I will be holding a press conference tomorrow, please address your questions there," says Giaa.

  1. i m crying :'(

  2. Well every actor has their own priority...

    Gia has a good head on her shoulder and she knows what she is doing.

    And of course channel has also all rights to decline or accept other engagements of their key stars and also rights to terminate the contract if the actor do not agree...

    It is unfortunate incident that Gia had to leave the show becasue of her desire to participate in JDJ...

    Well Gia you have taken a very bold step and so all the best to you and for all your future projects...
