Jodha Akbar, Zee TV's popular historical show, which has kept the audience engaged with the Mughal family story, may have a major change in its cast. As there are reports that the Salim, Ravi Bhatia may get replaced in the show.
According to a leading daily, a source was quoted as saying that Salim-Anarkali's track will be moving forward and they feel that Ravi looks too young to play this part. The source also said that the rating of the show has dropped down and the makers are working hard to regain its lost TRP.
Another source has another reason for the whole replacement rumour. It is said that, since lot of expectations are on Ravi's role and makers not satisfied with his act, they are looking for the replacement.
In the upcoming episode, there will be a leap wherein Salim would age. Tellychakkar quoted a source as saying, "A lot of expectations have been riding high on Ravi and with the makers not satisfied with his act, they have decided to get a new face to add spice and bring back the falling numbers. The creatives are planning a short leap, wherein Salim would age and thus a new face will take the stride further."
Shaleen Malhotra, who is seen hosting Vikas Gupta's Talaash, was considered for the role. But the makers could not rope him as he quoted a high amount. It is also reported that Aly Goni, who was currently seen in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein was considered for the role of Salim.
While Aly said he was not approached, Ravi rubbished the news of replacement.
Let's wait and watch if this piece of news like Ravi said is a rumour or true!
