They tried everything under the sun to set the TRPs escalating for Dill Mill Gayye but nothing seemed to work. Apparently, post the exit of Karan Singh Grover, there was a constant dip in the TRPs and the once number one show of Star One was run over by other soaps. But recently, the channel and the production house buried their hatchet with KSG and brought him back on the show in a bid to win over the loyalists. And now we hear that the makers are also planning to recall the original Dr Riddhima (Shilpa Anand). Anand was replaced by Sukriti Khandpal who was replaced by Jennifer Winget.
Informs a source, “With the comeback of KSG, things are looking brighter and one hopes the show will regain its lost ground. And now Cinevistaas is planning to rope in Shilpa too. In the current track Dr Siddhant (Karan Wahi) is trying his best to bring back Dr Armaan and Dr Riddhima together whereas, on the other hand, Riddhima has decided to accept Siddhant in her life. Apparently, an actor close to Shilpa was requested to ask her if she would be interested in returning to the show. Shilpa was keen and now the ball is in the production house’ court which will revert to her once they are sure of everything. Earlier too they had approached her to return but things didn’t materialise as the actress wasn’t satisfied with the package deal. Buzz is also that Jennifer is planning to quit DMG .”
According to a source from the production house, “The loyal viewers of the show have been constantly demanding to bring back their favourite Dr Armaan and the original Dr Riddhima ever since they exited the show. Now that Karan is back, they want to see their favourite Riddhima too.”
When contacted Anand said, “They have approached me through a co-actor friend and I have agreed. But they are yet to get back to me on this.”
However, Palki, the writer of the show, rubbished the rumours saying, “No, Shilpa Anand is not returning.” And is Winget quitting? Palki said, “No, she is not.”
Winget refuted the buzz and said, "No it's not true I am not quitting the show."
Well, there is still a sliver of hope about Anand returning to her on-screen flame.
