The three-woman army seen in Teen Bahuraniyan has now been reduced to two, as Manwa Naik who portrayed the role of Manjeet has quit the serial. The actress has taken this move as she was displeased with the way her character was progressing in the serial. "Yes, it is true that I am leaving the show. The producers had promised that I would be playing the lead in the serial, but that didn't happen", states Manwa.
Sources also reveal that the actress was not very happy with the entry of Smriti Irani aka Vrinda Massi into the serial, as all the spotlight and story revolved around her, leaving others in a lurch. Ultimately, with Manwa calling the shots, the production house ended her character very gracefully. "We tried our best to give justice to Manjeet's character in the end. But as a production house we couldn't really force her to carry on with the role against her wishes. We wish her all the best for her future," says Tanu, Creative Head of Teen Bahuraniyaan.
Well, Manwa who is also seen in Star Plus' Baa Bahu Aur Baby will play a lead role in the rival channel soap, is what we hear from our source. When asked about this, Manwa vehemently declines saying, "At present I am not doing any other shows and waiting for a right script to come across". Probably Manwa took a bad decision by coming out of a serial which had Smriti in it.. Wonder whether Manwa lost a golden opportunity of being in the good books of the actor-turned producer, Smriti Irani!!
