Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka is one of the most-awaited show on Colors TV. A few days ago, the poster of the show which featured Drashti Dhami, Shakti Arora and Aditi Sharma went viral on social media.
It has to be recalled that Devoleena was the front-runner for the show and it was said that Drashti will be seen doing a cameo role! But according to the latest report, Devoleena lost to Drashti as she quoted huge amount.
Devoleena Acts Pricey!
A source close to the channel was quoted by BollywoodLife as saying, "They were quite keen on Devoleena but she demanded close to a Lakh per episode. It left them shell-shocked. Later, they said they were ready to shell out till Rs 85K per episode but she did not relent.

"Finally, the team signed on Drashti Dhami, the second favourite, who came at a much more reasonable fee." The source further said, "Drashti settled for approximately 60K, which was affordable for the makers."
The Actress Says
When BollywoodLife got in touch with Devoleena for clarity, she said, "I don't talk commercials. It is my manager who handles all this. He is handling many other artistes as well, including Drashti."
Did Devoleena Quote Rs 2 Lakhs Per Episode?
It has to be recalled that one of the reasons for Saath Nibhana Saathiya going off air was Devoleena Bhattacharjee's high demand of fee hike (another reason was tiff between the channel and the producer)! It was said that the actress demanded pay hike of Rs 2 Lakhs per episode which was unacceptable by the channel as Rupal Patel was also getting a huge amount.
