Actress Pooja Banerjee, who is currently seen as Nivedita Basu in ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2’, will be soon  seen in Shabbir Ahluwalia and Sriti Jha’s ‘Kumkum Bhagya’.

The actress will switch over from playing a mature, young woman in ‘Kasautii Zindagi Kay’,to playing a 19-year-old in ‘Kumkum Bhagya’

Reportedly actress Naina Singh who played Rhea,on Zee Tv’s ‘Kumkum Bhagya’ decided to quit the show as she wasn’t happy with her role and it’s character development. Pooja Banerjee has confirmed that she will be replacing Naina and playing the role of Rhea in upcoming episodes. This is the second major replacement in ‘Kumkum Bhagya’ as Shikha Singh who played Aaliya has also recently been replaced with Rehyna Malhotra.

In a recent interview with ‘Times Of India’ when asked how she will juggle two shows, the actress replied, “I was apprehensive initially, but fortunately, the sets of both the shows are located next to each other and I don’t have to travel at all. Even my make-up artist and room will continue to be the same. It will be mainly about changing the costumes. So, I don’t have to take extra precautions.”

Pooja  further added that she is looking forward to playing a younger character on screen, she said, “I play Sriti (Jha) and Shabbir (Ahluwalia)’s daughter. I think I look younger than my age, so that won’t be a problem. Also, Sriti and Shabbir are relatively older than my age group, so playing the part won’t be a problem. I will be essaying negative roles in both the shows and they will give me a lot of scope to perform.”

Pooja along with the cast of Kasautii Zindagii Kay underwent a test for Coronavirus after Parth Samthaan was tested positive. Everyone later revealed that they all have tested negative and the show resumed it’s shoot on July 17.
