Keerti Gaekwad Kelkar, who was on a break since the past six years, will be back on television. She will be seen replacing Dipika Kakar on Sasural Simar Ka. Keerti will be new Simar on SSK!
Kreeti confirmed the news and was quoted by a leading daily as saying, "I wanted to return to television with a good project. The show will bring its focus back on the mother-daughter relationship; I believe that I suit the role perfectly since I am also a mother."
Kreeti added, "Though the character of Simar is already established, the challenge lies in adding some freshness to it. I wouldn't have taken it up if it wasn't so challenging. I am nervous and excited at the same time to face the camera after so long."
The actress is known for her roles Sinndoor Tere Naam Ka (Niharika Raizada), Saat Phere (Chandni/Devika) and Choti Bahu (Mrinalini Purohit). She was last seen on Man Udhan Varyache in which she played the role of Aditi.
Kreeti and her hubby Sharad Kelkar, who is also a popular actor, were also seen on dance reality show Nach Baliye 2.
