We are talking about Esha Deol. Buzz has it that the actress will replace Toral Rasputra on Jag Janani Maa Vaishno Devi and will essay the role of Rani Samridhi Devi, the mother of Maa Vaishno Devi. Though the news of Esha coming on board the show has been doing the rounds, she is yet to make any official announcement.

For the unversed, Toral Rasputra had walked out of the show before the lockdown. Sharing the reason behind quitting the show despite being praised for her performance, she had said that she was not comfortable playing mother to a grown-up girl.

“Leaps, sudden changes in the storyline, and actors quitting are all part of the game because everything depends on ratings. I was aware that Maa Vaishno Devi, too, will go in for a leap, but I did not expect it to happen so suddenly. I have never played mother to an adult. Since the decision to introduce the leap was sudden, I had to shoot a few scenes with Puja, but I was sure that I wanted to quit. I felt that I would not be able to look convincing as her mother. It was an amicable decision and the makers understood my point,” she had said.

Jag Janani Maa Vaishno Devi airs on Star Bharat.
