Though the serial, Saat Phere took an 11-year-old leap, the lead actress Rajshree Thakur has not been shown ageing. She still sports black hair in the serial as she has refused to grey her hair.A source close to the production house said, â€œRajshree, who achieved stardom with this serial, was very uncomfortable with the idea of being seen with grey strands.When the production house insisted on it, to depict her new, older look, Rajshree refused to budge.An argument ensued between the two, resulting in Rajshree giving an ultimatum to the production guys that if they wanted her on the show, they would have to consent to her terms.The production house had no option but to bow down to the popular actressâ€™s demand.So after the generation leap, the actress now sports traditional jewellery like jhumkas to go with her new look.â€
Rajshree Thakur denied the news and said, â€œI have no problem greying. But when I wasnâ€™t asked by anybody to do it, why should I?â€ She then quickly added, â€œTell me, who greys their hair these days on television?â€
Producer Sanjay Wadhwa maintained a diplomatic stand on the issue and said, â€œI am not aware if Rajshree had a problem with greying her hair. Maybe she spoke to Zee TV about it.â€
The Creative Head of Saat Phere, Shikha Vigg, was more forthcoming, â€œKnowing the cast of Saat Phere by now, I am sure that this episode must have happened.â€
Buzz is Saat Phere is set to make another leap. It would be interesting to see if Rajshree greys then.
