Ekta Kapoor is tearing her hair out after her new find, Anupriya Kapoor, simply walked out of her forthcoming serial, Bayttaab Dil Kee Tamanna, which is loosely based on the lives of rich society people. Not only has this resulted in the shoot coming to a standstill, but new promos too will have to be shot, featuring a new actress. The current promos have Anupriya featuring rather prominently in them.Anupriya left because she believes she wasnâ€™t given due prominence. She plays the eldest of the three sisters in the serial and believed that hers was the meatiest role. â€œBut soon she realised that the main track of the story was based on the younger sister played by Sumana Das. She grumbled and complained about this, and eventually decided that she didnâ€™t want to be a part of the show,â€ a source said.
A source from the production house said, â€œIt is very unprofessional on Anupriyaâ€™s part to leave Ekta midway like this. There are only two weeks left before the serial goes on air. Ekta has to find a replacement soon.â€
Not denying that she isnâ€™t a part of Bayttaab Dil Kee Tamanna, Anupriya only said, â€œI donâ€™t want to talk about it.â€
The channelâ€™s official, Danish Khan (Vice President, Marketing) confirmed that Anupriya is not doing the show anymore. He said, â€œAnupriya has walked out, but thatâ€™s between her and Balaji Telefilms. We were not privy to what happened. We have almost zeroed in on a new face and will start shooting with her soon.â€
