In Ballika Vadhu, Pratyusha Banerjee had stepped into the shoes of young Avika Gor when the channel decided to go in for a time leap in the hit show. But it is going to be a role reversal in real life.
Going by latest reports, Avika, who is remembered as Anandi, might replace Pratyusha Banerjee on dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. Reports are that Pratyusha was suffering from dengue.
According to a source from the show: “Pratyusha has not been able to shoot for her daily soap or rehearse for her act. She was in two minds whether to continue with ,i>Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. But if she does perform this week, there is a possibility that she will automatically get ousted from the show.”
Pratyusha, who has just been discharged from the hospital, says, “Since I was not on the set, I do not know what is going to happen. So I really cannot comment on whether I will continue on the show.”
Meanwhile, Avika’s father Sameer has confirmed that the young girl has received an offer to join the show but refused to divulge further details.
Incidentally, our source also adds that a handful of other actors too have been approached to enter the show via a wild card, and Ashmit Patel is one of them.
