New Delhi: Actress-politician Smriti Irani has turned down a role in Ekta Kapoor's promotional series Ek Thi Naayika, as she is reluctant to portray a courtesan.

A Bharatiya Janata Party MP, Smriti prefers to be cautious about her professional decisions. When Ekta, who gave Smriti a huge platform with hit show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi over a decade ago, asked the actress to play a nautch girl in an episode of Ek Thi Naayika, Smriti asked for a change. Ekta obliged, and asked Sakshi Tanwar to play the part instead.

Smriti will now feature in another story in the same show. Smriti was caught in controversy sometime back when a politician mocked at her as a former dancer who had entered politics only some years ago. The TV series is a prelude to Ekta and Vishal Bhardwaj's co-production Ek Thi Daayan. It is a unique marketing innovation to promote a movie via a TV series.
