Gashmeer Mahajani who essays the role of Aditya Kumar Tripathi in the Star Plus show ‘Imlie’ is all set to bid adieu to the show. Apparently, Gashmeer decided to quit the show because he was unable to give time to Marathi cinema and other projects.
According to a source, “It was quite clear from the first day of the shoot that Gashmer will continue to shoot for his Marathi films and for web alongside Imlie, to which the makers had agreed. But as the story progressed and the show started doing well, Gashmeer was not able to take up other projects. He reportedly gave only 10 days in a month to the makers to shoot his sequence which was not enough. After a lot of discussions, Gashmeer finally quit the show. His last day will be in mid-January.”
Earlier the makers, who were searching for a replacement for the role were considering ‘Hamari Wali Good News’ fame Raghav Tiwari. However, now it looks like actor Manasvi Vashist of ‘Ishq Mein Marjaawan 2’ fame has bagged the meaty role.
The upcoming episodes of the show will witness Aditya missing for a while. Later it will be shown that Aditya comes out of a tricky situation, thereby introducing the new Aditya essayed by Manasvi.
Produced by Four Lions’ Pvt Ltd, Imlie features a stellar star cast including actors like Sumbul Touqeer Khan, Fahmaan Khan, Mayuri Deshmukh among others.
