MUMBAI: A replacement is in store for the audience of Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya 2. Actress Bhumika Gurung, who plays Meera on the show, has made way for Tina Philip. The latter was last seen in Aye Mere Humsafar.
According to reports, “Bhumika has been relieved from the show on medical grounds. She has been quite unwell for some time. We had no option but to rope in another actress to play the part and take the story forward. We have signed Tina to play the new Meera in Pratigya 2.” While Bhumika remained unavailable for comment, Tina told us, “Yes, I am going to be a part of Pratigya 2. I have heard that Bhumika is unwell. She has some health issues and she has parted ways with the production house amicably. It’s a mutual decision.”
When asked if it would be challenging to replace an actor and join a show midway, she replied, “I don’t know about stepping into someone’s shoes and I don’t think about it too much. I just see it as a new role for me. I am really excited about playing the part, as it has got a great graph. The show has a gripping storyline and every character is so beautifully etched out. I have been wanting to associate with producer Rajan Shahi and I am glad that I have finally got an opportunity.”
