Niti Taylor, who is known for her role as Shivani in the TV show Ghulaam, has been ousted from the show. Yes, you heard it right. Reports indicate that the makers decided to replace her on the show, almost overnight. With Niti’s exit, the makers are now looking for a strong actress to replace her. Apparently, Sanaya Irani and Ekta Kaul are some of the actresses being considered for the role. Given that the show is all set to be relaunched, makers are looking for a more popular name to shoulder the show. This could be one of the reasons why the team thought of replacing Niti.
However, a source close to the development has other reasons to cite for the development. Apparently, Niti was always on her phone, much to the irritation of her colleagues and makers which resulted in her being replaced. It seems the actress was always so busy on her phone that she would often forget to read her lines. Additionally, her relationship with her co-stars coupled with her frequent mood swings garnered a lot of negative publicity for the show. Niti had been in news lately after reports of her tiff with co-stars Param Singh and Vikkas Manaktala started doing the rounds.
And if these reasons weren’t enough, the makers were also unhappy with Niti’s poor diction in Hindi. Given that Gulaam is a out-and-out Hindi oriented show set in Haryana the actress was expected to pronounce the words correctly which she failed to do with her improper Hindi. She would often cease to remember her dialogues, consequently resulting in several retakes being given. This would cause the whole production unit to suffer as the execution of the scenes would be delayed. (ALSO READ: Why Is Ghulaam Actress Niti Taylor Learning Pottery?)
The actress was informed about her ouster only day before yesterday and needless to say she was shocked to hear the news. However, she took it in her stride and reported for the remaining part of her shoot as her character will be killed in the show.
With the relaunch and the entry of a more popular actress, viewers will get to see a more intense triangular love story in the coming days. Are you as excited as we are for the upcoming track? Do let us know in the comments section below.
