Only a day before its release, Siddharth Kumar's historical show Chandragupta Maurya managed to grab a lot of attention. It was revealed that Diya Aur Baati Hum actress Shefali Sharma, who was initially roped in to play the role of a new-age mother, was replaced by Sneha Wagh overnight. While talking to Pinkvilla, a source has revealed a few shocking details about Shefali, in which the person has even spoken about her alleged 'blackmails'. The actress also has issued a statement with regard to the same. Here's the actual reason behind Shefali Sharma's exit from Chandragupta Maurya!
Shefali Apparently Blackmailed The Makers!
Though Shefali has issued a statement defending herself, a source while talking to Pinkvilla revealed another side of the story. The quote read, "The production house is known to be one of the best in the industry and they refused to tolerate Shefali's blackmail as they have no tolerance for unethical people and hence they replaced her".
Unreasonable Demands Couldn't Be Met
The source further added, "Shefali had been locked and was about to start shooting. However, right before starting shoot she wanted to renegotiate on already agreed terms and put out unreasonable demands. She tried to corner the production house being fully aware that the shoot was scheduled the next day."
Shefali's Version Of The Story
The Diya Aur Baati Hum actress Shefali had another story to share. Justifying her ground, she told Tellychakkar, "Yes, it's true that I have moved out of the show. I kept asking for an agreement, which they kept delaying. In fact, even at the time of press conference, I still did not have the agreement with me. Later, when they asked me to begin shooting, I first asked for my papers. At the end, when they provided them, I wanted a few changes in the contract."
'I Chose To Back Down From The Show'
"As the demands did not match up, I chose to back down from the show. But everything ended on a mutual consent and there was no bad blood as such. Swastik is very good production house to work with, and I would love to work with them in the future," the actress said
