Mansi refused to be a part of the show after 20 year leap
Mansi Srivastava who plays Prerna on the show has refused to be a part of it post the leap. Sasural Simar Ka is taking a leap of 20 years and the actress has refused to grow older. She said that she would have considered if it was a five year leap but 20 years is too much for her. She does not want to age so much at this given point of time. Besides, she is not sure if there would be much scope left for her after the leap. She chose to part ways on a good note. We know that the show has taken a leap as the TRPs are down. It has Simar living away from the Bharadwaj household as the governess of her past friends child. Dipika Kakkar aka Simar and Dheeraj Dhoopar aka Prem are part of the show.
The age issue is becoming a severe one in recent times. The latest ones to quit are Zuber Khan from Kasam and Nia Sharma from Jamai Raja. These actors also did not wish to age on screen. With so many actors refusing to grow older we guess makers will think twice before introducing leaps.
Mansi confirms, “I shot my last episode on July 21. I was contemplating whether or not to continue after the five-year time leap, but I made up my mind when I learnt about the 20-year leap. I don’t think I am prepared to age on screen at this point in my career.” (As told to TOI)
