Recently, we had reported about the replacement of Mrunal
Thakur in Zee TV's show, Kumkum Bhagya. Apparently,
Mrunal's role will be reprised by Kajol Srivastava.
Kajol was previously seen in the shows Mooh Boli Shaadi
and Badi Devrani. Confirming her role in Kumkum
Bhagya, the actress was quoted by a leading daily as saying,
"I am excited about my role. Mrunal did a good job and yes, I feel
the pressure as I step into her shoes."
Even though Mrunal has not come out with any statement, we saw a
few pictures on the social networking sites which gave us a clue
that the actress is in fact quitting the show. Posting the
above image, Mrunal's co-star, Shikha Singh
took to the social network to wish the actress.
Shikha, who plays the role of Alia on the show, wrote, "Gurlllll
all the best for all your endeavours @mrunal0801 Will miss u #kkb
#alia #bulbul #enemybutfriends."
Posting the above picture, Mrunal's on-screen
husband Purab (Arjit Taneja) wrote on his social media, "Wishing
you all the luck and success, Kill it! ;-) :)))) @mrunal0801."
Another actress, Shruti Yogi posted the above
image and wrote, "Gonna miss this pretty girl 😊 #prettestgirl."
Mrunal was unhappy with the role as it was not given much
importance, and so she decided to quit the show. But another rumour
is doing the rounds.
It is said that Mrunal has been approached to play one of the
two heroines in Salman Khan's Sultan. It is also reported that
Mrunal was not only approached for Sultan, she was also offered
Aamir Khan's Dangal.
Well, since Mrunal is mum about the issue, we are waiting for
the official confirmation by the actress herself.
