Finally Dill Mill Gayye is going to end. The show has been a favorite of people of different age groups all over the world. Now it is the time for it to bid adieu to all the fans. Many are disappointed; many are not since they had already stopped watching the show because of the turn of events in the past few months on the show. Even I have not been a regular viewer of the show anymore but have tried and kept myself updated about it. Recently the show celebrated it’s 700th episode, and now the news is that it will end in by 15th of October. In fact as per the latest news the show has been shifted for two more weeks and will end on 29th October. Also what is being heard is that the old gang is going to come back on the show for the last couple of weeks. I am not really sure if I am happy or sad at the ending because I have almost cut off from the show, so not really disappointed but yes I do have some great memories of the show as well, which I will definitely miss. In fact if the show has an happy ending that is that the two main characters are together (I guess everyone is expecting that) then certainly I would be looking forward for the third season, or the second as the producers are calling it. I have a piece of news on that over here.

One of the articles on that is over here:

“Dil Mil Gayye era ends on October 15th…!

Star One long running show Dil Mill Gayye will now wind up on October 15th…

Cinevistaa’s long running show on Star One Dil Mill Gayye has completed its successful run, and will be bidding adieu on October 15th. The story which started on a full filled note has a huge fan following and for the favorite on screen pairs they have offered. The latest is that DMG will now be making way for Rajesh Chaddha’s Yeh Ishq Haaye which launches on October 18th.

Siddhart Malhotra confirmed the news saying “Yes, it is going to be an end of an era for us. We will think of coming back with season 2 if the channel and viewers want it.”

Ironically, the show celebrated the milestone of completion of 700 episodes just yesterday. We hear that the production house is planning to host a grand farewell party soon. As for the loyal viewers , they will miss indeed their favorite show now !

Yeh Ishq Haaye produced by Panglosean Entertainment has Yashdeep Nain, Raunaq Ahuja and Shrishti Rode playing lead.”

The main articles can also be read at the India-forums and the Star One site.

Here is the news of the show closure being postponed for 2 weeks:

“Temporary respite for DMG, old gang back

STAR One and Cinevistaas want to make sure that as their longest running show, Dill Mill Gayye nears its closure for its loyal viewers to watch the best.
The show that was to end on 15 October has now got an extension of two weeks and DMG will now end on 29 October. What can be looked forward to is that the old gang is coming back on the show and bid adieu to their fans in style, thereby leaving them mesmerised and spell bound. However, viewers’ favourite Dr. Shilpa will make an early exit from the show as her track will conclude. Amongst the old gang Anjali (Sunaina Gulia), Atul (Pankit Thakker), Keerti (Sonia Singh) and Shubhankar (Ayaz Khan) are going to make a comeback.

Dr. Shilpa will come to know of Armaan and Riddhima’s one night stand. She decides to leave Arman after she realises his obsession for Riddhima. Her exit will air sometime soon.

Creative Head, Palki Malhotra says, “Fans have gone berserk after the news of DMG ending has reached them. The response has been terrible and amazing at the same time. Going by the brickbats we have been receiving from the viewers, we had thought they would welcome the news but they have been demanding not to end the show. Both the channel and production house have been flooded with mails and text messages from fans. Guess old habits die hard. Going by the popular demand and considering the kind of popularity DMG enjoys, the channel has decided to extend it so that we can justify the old gang returning on the show and the conclusion. Time and again, I have said that DMG started as a happy show so it ought to have a happy ending too. With the old doctors returning, we are looking forward for the show to end with same gusto and madness.”

Palki feels that the attempt to try infusing a different flavour into the show worked against the show. She explains, “DMG never had a story to tell initially. It was a moment driven show always. Later fans started demanding us to introduce a definite story to it and adhering to it we focused on the love angle of Armaan. We thought it will interest other audience too apart from the youth but it backfired. I won’t say the show is doing bad but just that the TRPs have dipped. We did try to salvage the situation by bringing back Karan Singh Grover and Shilpa Anand but couldn’t win back our viewers.”

Dr. Shilpa said, “My track will end soon and I will exit after realising that Armaan is obsessed with Riddhima. I enjoyed playing Dr. Shilpa more than Riddhima. Shilpa’s character has a lot of variety to offer and even the look was appreciated by the audience and my fans.”

Catch the last of Dill Mill Gayye as the entire gang comes back on the show as it reaches it last leg to entertain its fans for that one last time, Monday to Friday, 8:00 pm on STAR One.”

I found another article that jisted the great moments of the show so far. And I thought that it was a very good piece of work and I liked it very much so thought to share it over here:

“DMG’s ENDING! Can’t believe it!:( So it”s kind of confirmed AR will re-unite!:) But why can’t they continue showing their married life!:(

Miss you DMG!:(

It started out 3 years ago…In the Basketball court, with Armaan-Riddhima’s fights, with Atul, Anjali, Sapna along side…Love kindled between AR and AA…

Enter Rahul-Muskaan….The two would-be obstacles in AR’s love story….The legendary bike race between Armaan and Rahul, and Riddhima’s long awaited confession which came shortly after Armaan’s accident….The golden days of DMG….

The Armaan-Muskaan part, which lead to AR’s sad break up…The fire escape fight….Armaan going to Kasauli and Riddhima trying to bring him back….

The Holi episode…A drunk Riddhima confesses her feelings yet again…But then she’s RIDDHIMA, so she had to deny being in love with Armaan…!!

Finally, after cake fights, basketball matches and another numerous fights, Shilpa aka Riddhima leaves the show…

Enter Sukriti as Riddhima…From the ‘No Masti, No Shaitani, Only Dosti Nibhaani’ regime, to the final patch up, AR were back together with A BANG!:D

The amazing time which followed contained, the gang getting suspended, RM’s fake marriage, AR trying to tell Shashank the truth, my favorite part-the Bomb episode, where Armaan sticks by Riddhima’s side….

Enter Nikita Malhotra….Armaan’s old best friend….And soon after, Abhimanyu Modi…The evil doctor/administrator of Sanjeevani….

From the Armaan-Abhimanyu tiffs, to the Save Sanjeevani Concert….Everything added to the excitement…

But soon after, Rahul left Muskaan as Mayank left the show…!:(

Finally the time came, when Shashank came to know about AR….As expected, he didn’t approve….What followed, was Armaan battling for his love…With help from Radio City..:P and US of course, AR finally came back together!:) The Shashank-Armaan debate and the Bhook-Hadtal…!:D Armaan got his love back!:)

The Valentine’s party-A celebration for AR’s victory!:D….Rahul returns and Abhi-Nikki love kindles fire…

Calling Armaan’s parents….Enter Billy and Ananya….Two people which could spoil everything all over again….But our Armaan handled it all well!!:D

And another sad news approaches….Sukriti decided to leave the show!:(
Enter Jennifer as Riddhima….The Roka episode, the Armaan-Abhimanyu boxing match, Armaan’s legendary dialogue which we got to hear many times thanks to Riddhima’s flashbacks-

“Main Armaan Mallik…Riddhima Gupta se vaada karta hun…Ki main usse bahut pyar karta hun….”

Awwww…!:)

Kirti-Shbhankar’s wedding( At least SOMEONE got the expected HAPPY ENDING!:O), the PARI incident…And another BIG fight between AR…

What followed was, Armaan’s accident, resulting in 2 years memory loss…!:( From the first meeting, to the last, he forgot everything connected to Riddhima….

Riddhima’s dilemma to see the love of her life treating her like an annoying ‘Teacher’ and flirting with other girls as well….Her Talli behavior in Rahul’s farewell party….

Soon after, Armaan is struck with the bitter truth-It’s not 2007 anymore, and he was once engaged to the Teacher-Riddhima….

Riddhima’s attempt to help Armaan pass in his internship exam….Which resulted in her getting slapped by Shashank and then getting suspended….But the gang intervened….Kidnapped her and brought her to Armaan who found out the truth just in time!:)

The amazing proposal made by Armaan on his knees in the path lab( Why do all their special moments take place in such places?)…And the decision of getting married within a month…

And then came the WORST episode DMG’s ever brought us….21st September, 2009….AR getting seriously injured….Ending Season 1 of DMG with the final call of ‘Humse hasi…..Jaane kahaan dill mill gayye…’ with AR being shown in the OT….

I’m clueless what happened after that, since I quit watching the show for those 3-4 months which followed….All I knew were the names of the new interns:P-Tamanna, Naina, Siddhant, Yuvraaj and Jitendra-Prasad(JP)….The true AR and DMG fans succeeded though, yet again, in getting Riddhima back in the show…

1st Jan, 2010, Riddhima was back with a bang…Although no one knew what happened to Armaan….And the drama began again….The fights with Siddhant…And then she finally coming to know the truth about Armaan….

The trip to Panchgini to get Armaan back, and the unfortunate HYPOTHERMIA drama….Which resulted in Sid-Riddhima getting married…

Armaan’s awaited comeback happened soon after….The brutal way he came to know the truth, and then his withdrawal at losing his love….

Enter Shilpa aka Shilpa Anand…And the life returned after a long time….

But Riddhima could never forget who she really loved…And although Shilpa fell for Armaan(understandable:P), Riddhima got married to Sid for the second time and Armaan accepted he had lost, AR still couldn’t live with these facts…

The honeymoon episode, where it was proved Riddhima is still in love with Armaan, and the still on-going battle between the girl’s mind and heart, is something we are watching right now…

But it’s impossible to end this epic show in just a matter of the next 2 WEEKS!:(

But well…

I don’t know why I wasted my time writing such a long summary of our favorite show…But it’s my way giving a farewell to that one Indian soap which kept me hooked for 3 whole years….

I know this is pretty lame, DMG had to end someday…But well, it was the only show which could keep me hooked to my seat, come-what-may, for the past 3 years, right from the beginning to the very end…!

Bye-bye DMG! Love you-AR, AA, RM, AN, Sid too….And I kind of liked Naina as well!:P

But yeah….Loved every part of this show-except the beginning of Season 2 without AR….:/

Guys please comment on this! Bahut mehnat se likha hai!:P

Long live DMG!

Hope you return with a Season 3!:D

-Shrutika!”


Well again the questions are out, something what I had written in my earlier post as well. I have found a few articles over the net that raise questions like what exactly is going on the minds of the creatives. For example why was Shilpa Anand called back on the show? I guess the writers themselves don’t know what is going in story, or what needs to be written ahead. It looks like plan each episode after the previous one has been shot. I really don’t want to write more on this, I would rather just put those articles here for everyone.

Here is the first artice:

”TellyChakkar had earlier reported that there were problems cropping up on the sets of Dill Mill Gayye as actors were reportedly not happy with the way their tracks were moving. The latest is Sid’s character will now be shown negative in the show.

A little birdie informs, “Now the show will introduce a new twist and Sid will be shown negative. The track will focus again on Armaan and Riddhima and the latest promo being aired hints at the adultery angle. Riddhima will probably commit a mistake and will admit it to Sid and that will prompt him to turn negative. It has also been shown that Riddhima probably has a soft corner for Armaan. The new track will also mean sidelining Shilpa’s character even further. However the production house has not completely nailed this track down but in all probability Sid will turn negative. This will mean more complications in the lives of Riddhima and Armaan.”

We called up Karan Wahi who plays Sid to confirm the news but he seemed totally clueless. Says Karan, “I have absolutely no idea about this track. I have not been shooting for the past two days with them and I don’t know where the story is heading because I haven’t been informed about it yet.” When quizzed about the promo and the adultery angle, Karan says,” I have shot for a promo which is on air but I do not know why or what is it that makes Riddhima apologise! I am just aware of a possible triangle in the show. Even if Sid were to turn negative they would have informed me.”

Palki Malhotra Creative Head, Cinevistaas remained unavailable for comment.”

Here is the second artice:

”Is Cinevistaas set out to make mockery out of marriage?

Cinevistaas’s Dil Mil Gaye airing on Star One has recently undergone some changes in their story lines. After the first marriage sequence of Siddhant and Riddhima, the couple was set out to re-marry again with their own consent. The second marriage sequence had been aired last week. Unfortunately, there have been many rumors coming out in regards to the upcoming track within this popular youth based show.

Recent rumors indicate that Siddhant and Riddhima’s future is going to be short lived. Well where did the rumors come from? Well according to a video posted by the Creative of Dil Mil Gaye, Amita Devadiga on Cinevistaas’s Official Facebook Fan Page, indicate that the second marriage of Siddhant & Riddhima’s is about the break! According to a statement made on the Facebook page by Amita Devadiga, hey guys, here is the new dmg promo which is not on air as yet…pls have a look cause it says that ur fav couple armaan and riddhima are going to be together forever….!!!”, the promo seems to pose various different questions and predictions. The promo questions whether Armaan and Riddhima will have an extra marital affair, which is the prime reason for Riddhima’s marriage breaking up.

Rumors have also presented a question on whether Siddhant (Karan Wahi) will be shown turning negative. Where does this leave Dr. Armaan and Dr. Shilpa’s track? Well that is a major question to be asked! The show has already made a mockery out of marriage, which is a pure and sentimental bond between a man and a women. The show has questioned the feelings of Indian Women who believe in marriage. Will Indian Society be able to accept Riddhima’s future affair being a “pure mistake” during her married life?

As of now the show Is this track really going to take place or is just to create the hype to gain television ratings? Will the Amita Devadiga and her team continue with the “rumored storyline” or will they go on to provide their audience with a sensible and mature track which abides by Indian Society today?”


The story of Dill Mill Gayye seems to have haywire. I really don’t know what everyone is up to over there. The creatives are destroying the show more and more after every episode. There is a lot of confusion let in the minds of the viewers after the end of the episodes.

For a start why are Sid and Riddhima getting married again? And why is Anjali being called back for the marriage episodes. Why have the old new interns Yuvi (Sehban Azim) and Naina (Neha Julka) back on the show. So far Shilpa’s role is not looking any substantial; in fact it looks as if it is getting reduced even further. Agreed that Karan Singh Grover is not available for a few days because he is participating in another reality show, but this does not mean that the creatives don’t move the story ahead, and just buy time by showing stupid and unnecessary stuff.

Well I am now really frustrated watching the show, which at one time I could not miss at any cost. The character of the leading character Riddhima has been sabotaged so badly that I don’t think that the original viewers are interested in watching the show anymore. Then on top of all this there is news of Karan Wahi quitting the show, and many others. All I can say is that the show seems to be going anywhere.

I can go on writing all this down but I would prefer to just add a few updates from various sites, which I have found out to be good information. One of those sites is here.

“I GOT A NEWS DON’T KNOW WHETHER IT’S TRUE OR NOT
Riddhimma herself will leave the marriage n search for Armaan n this will result in More problems between sidmaa n the marriage wont happen eventually…

Riddhimma will accept that she still loves armaan……!

This Track has been introduced cos Sid has decided to quit the show permanently n they will be showing triangle love story between armaan shilpa n ridhimma……..!

This Triangle love story wasnt supposed to happen but because Karan wahi has decided to quit suddenly n Cvs are not in any mood to get another character to play sid,they have decided to end the character itself.

Sid will be truly pissed off by riddhimma’s reaction for Armaan n this will pave a way for an end to their relationship.”

Another News:

“MANY IMPORTANT NEWS FOR ALL
1.Their are 85% chances that karan wahi is leaving the show.It will maximum take him 1 month for which he won’t be their in dmg
2.The old dmg gang is back-
on fb the news is given that a gal from dmg fanclub contacted the cv nitin and got a news that old dmg gang will be back soon and also in sbs yuvi had appeared .

b.this news was even given of fb.

SO HOPES ARE UP FOR ARMA UNION.

and MOST IMPORTANTLY AS PER SBS KARAN SINGH GROVER IS ELEMINATED FROM KKK3,BEFOR HIM MILIND AND CYRUS HAVE BEEN ELEMINATED AND HE IS BACK TODAY(31 ST AUG) AS HIS TICKETS WERE BOOKED TODAY”

Another News:

“Sid and Riddhima are all set to tie the knot in Star One’s Dill Mill Gayye and with Sehban, Neha and Anjali returning to the show it feels like a ‘happy family’. But if gossip mongers are to be believed there is trouble brewing between the actors. The latest buzz that we hear is Jennifer Winget and Karan Wahi were not happy with the way their tracks were heading and had allegedly threatened to quit the show.
A little birdie tells us, “Ever since Shilpa Anand returned in the show, her track had been gaining a lot of importance. Jennifer and Karan were not happy with the way their tracks were progressing and felt they were not getting enough screen presence. They demanded more footage from the production house and even threatened to quit the show if the need arose. The current wedding track has been added keeping their demands in mind whereas Shilpa’s track has been cut drastically. She is just a mere figure in the show.”

Jennifer rubbished the rumour and said, “I wonder where you get all this news from? There is no truth to it.”

Palki Malhotra, creative head, Dill Mill Gayye echoed Jennifer’s words and said, “This is absolutely wrong. Nothing of this sort has happened.”

Shilpa however agreed that her track no longer had any importance in the show. Shilpa says, “I don’t know anything. I don’t know what has been happening but yes it is true I have no track left in the show now. I think it is the channel that should decide the track changes and not artistes. I don’t get into all of this. I come, work and leave.” “


After Dr. Atul and Dr. Naina it is the turn of two other interns that is Dr. Yuvraj and Dr. Suvarna to exit from the show. Although I got this news about a week back, but could not get the time to write it down here. Today in the show they showed both these interns shifting to a different location (branch in the USA), which means that they have said goodbye to the show. So I thought of finally writing it down.

But one must say that a lot is happening in the show thesedays, I am not really sure if it is good for the show or not. Now the situation is that the show which originally showed the life of the interns only has two interns left, that is Sid and JP. And out of these two Sid does not look like an intern anymore. I do not know where is the show exactly heading towards. But yes I must say that by getting Shilpa Anand back on the show the producers have managed to get a lot of lost viewers back (including me). It has been sometime that she is back on the show, but her identity has not been revealed as yet, so who knows she might be entering as a new intern.

Well coming back to the original topic, two more people have left the show. To be honest I don’t think there is much left in the show and with just focussing on the main characters and twisting the story, the creatives are just turning DMG into just one of the other boring daily soaps. Well I just hope that leaving both of them specially Yuvraj (I think he played his part very well till now) would be a correct decision.

In the end all that I can say is that I wish both these actors best of luck and for the show all I can say is, Keep watching!

Here is the original post where I had got this news from:

“Madhura Naik and Sehban Azim are the latest actors to quit Dill Mill Gaye. The show post leap seems to be undergoing a lot of changes. While some actors are being given a breather, some are willingly bowing out. New characters are being brought in, old faces are being recalled — in short there is a lot happening in DMG.

Sources say both Naik and Azim were not happy with their roles for some time now and there were discussions about the same but nothing seems to have come out of it. The actors confirmed to TellyChakkar about their exit. Now how will the story progress, considering both of them played an important role in the show? Sources say that the track will show both of them going abroad for further studies. Meanwhile, Shilpa Anand (who earlier played Ridhhima) is back in the show.

With so many entries and exits it now appears that fans will keep watching out of sheer curiosity.”


Well I am very excited in writing this post, but I am just praying that this news is true. Well I have found this article from the source I have believed on for the past year or so. Since it comes from this source I do believe that this is finally going to happen. Shilpa Anand is coming back to the show as per the source. Not as Riddhima but as a different doctor, to be paired with Karan Singh Grover.

If this happens this will be great news for the Dill Mill Gayye fans. I just hope that this is not a rumor or marketing stunt from the creatives, as otherwise it will hurt a lot of hearts around. I had also written a post sometime back, on the possibility of her comeback, but was not sure that if it was really true.
Here is that article:

“As You all know Star one has confirmed that Our Shilpa Is finally back in dmg. This is what i got from my source.
I do not have frndz working for media or anything for that matter, but I
have sources who themselves are KaSh fans but with deeper connection with
the parties concerned. Since no media is involved in my matters, it takes
time to get a concrete news. Nevertheless, I have some good news for you
guys

A) News from Shilpa’s front
Shilpa has given her consent for DMG after that long meeting that took place
few days ago. Shilpa and her mum were happy about Sidharth Malhotra’s way of
dealing things. The meeting was held to discuss about Shilpa’s character,
future track and her contract. Karan was present throughout the meeting.
Apparently both the parties are happy. And Finally the contract has been
signed. Shilpa will start shooting in 3-4 days. It might take less than 3-4 days, but YES CONTRACT HAS BEEN SIGNED.

B) News from CVs side
Sidharth Malhotra is quite confident about SA’s come back. CVs wanted to
bring SA as a new character named Dr Henna. But Shilpa suggested to change
her character’s name to Dr Shilpa. So, may be Shilpa’s onscreen name will be
Shilpa only. There were discussions regarding Shilpa’s entry as Ridhima’s
step sister. But this is not 100% confirmed, since Jennifer might leave once
Shilpa enters. And incase Jennifer sticks to the show, according to Sidharth
Malhotra two parallel storylines will be show, one a KaSh love story and the
other Shilpa-Ridhima’s step sister bonding and all.”

Well for a long time I have been reading and also have received a lot of comments that Shilpa should come back, she was the best Riddhima and many such more. I would be lying if I would say that I too did not feel the same thing. Though as I have always written that neither of the other two Riddhima’s disappointed me, but yes neither of the two could create the magic Shilpa did on screen.

I guess it is very good that she is coming as a different character and not Dr.Ridhhmia because, the Creatives have already damaged completely the character since the time she has left. Also I am very sure now people will love to see Karan and Shilpa together, much more than they would have been seeing Armaan and Riddhima.

Ending this post I just hope that all this news is true. I had stopped watching the show a couple of months back, but if she returns I will definitely come back to the show.


Dill Mill Gayye has been in news for a long time now, I mean for reasons apart from the episodes. They have been in news more about various issues, first both Jennifer Winget and Karan Singh Grover left the show. Later almost all the old interns followed. Then entered the new interns, well they were not accepted on the show that well. Then Jennifer returned and it looked as if the show will get back its TRPs but it did not. Then Karan also returned but Pankit left the show. With so much of happening on the show, still the show could not create the magic it had in the first season or I must say in its first year. I guess that is why this news of Shilpa Anand is surfacing. I have found two articles on and am pasting them here. The first one is:

“They tried everything under the sun to set the TRPs escalating for Dill Mill Gayye but nothing seemed to work. Apparently, post the exit of Karan Singh Grover, there was a constant dip in the TRPs and the once number one show of Star One was run over by other soaps. But recently, the channel and the production house buried their hatchet with KSG and brought him back on the show in a bid to win over the loyalists. And now we hear that the makers are also planning to recall the original Dr Riddhima (Shilpa Anand). Anand was replaced by Sukriti Khandpal who was replaced by Jennifer Winget.
Informs a source, “With the comeback of KSG, things are looking brighter and one hopes the show will regain its lost ground. And now Cinevistaas is planning to rope in Shilpa too. In the current track Dr Siddhant (Karan Wahi) is trying his best to bring back Dr Armaan and Dr Riddhima together whereas, on the other hand, Riddhima has decided to accept Siddhant in her life. Apparently, an actor close to Shilpa was requested to ask her if she would be interested in returning to the show. Shilpa was keen and now the ball is in the production house’ court which will revert to her once they are sure of everything. Earlier too they had approached her to return but things didn’t materialise as the actress wasn’t satisfied with the package deal. Buzz is also that Jennifer is planning to quit DMG .”

According to a source from the production house, “The loyal viewers of the show have been constantly demanding to bring back their favourite Dr Armaan and the original Dr Riddhima ever since they exited the show. Now that Karan is back, they want to see their favourite Riddhima too.”
When contacted Anand said, “They have approached me through a co-actor friend and I have agreed. But they are yet to get back to me on this.”

However, Palki, the writer of the show, rubbished the rumours saying, “No, Shilpa Anand is not returning.” And is Winget quitting? Palki said, “No, she is not.”

Winget refuted the buzz and said, “No it’s not true I am not quitting the show.”

Well, there is still a sliver of hope about Anand returning to her on-screen flame.”

The second article is:

Well, Dill Mil Gaye is again in the headlines, and this time the buzz is that the show is looking for a new Riddhima…

While the fans of Karan Singh Grover have not yet finished partying after getting their handsome hunk back again in Star One’s Dill Mil Gaye, there comes this news that the show will get back its original Riddhima i.e. Shilpa Anand.

For the uninitiated, Shilpa Anand and Karan Singh Grover shared an amazing on screen chemistry earlier, after which Shilpa was replaced by Sukirti Khandpal. After the stint of Sukirti as Riddhima, came in Jennifer Winget.

And now it looks as though there is every chance of Shilpa Anand getting back her prized role. And the reason stated is that Jennifer Winget’s contract apparently ends in April, and the actress has expressed her desire not to renew it any further.

According to our reliable source, “The production house asked an actor cum friend of Shilpa Anand to enquire whether she is interested in getting back to the show. Shilpa had a talk with the concerned people thro’ a series of text messages, and even expressed her desire to get back to the show. She has also given her quotation to the production house, and is now waiting for them to get back to her”.

Our source also tells us that, “It is not only Shilpa Anand who has been approached. Panchi Bora who was last seen in Kayamath is also in talks with the production house for the role of Riddhima. However, a decision has not been taken by the production house and channel”.

When we questioned Jennifer about her contract expiring, she said, “I don’t know from where these rumours are coming up. My contract is not ending in April, and I am not leaving DMG”.

Shilpa Anand on her part confirmed that, “Yes, the production house approached me thro’ one of my friends, to get back as Riddhima. I have accepted the offer and have sent them my quotation. They have to get back to me now”.

We contacted Panchi Bora who said, “Yes, I have been approached for Dill Mil Gaye. As of now, I am in Australia and will be talking to them once I get back”.

We tried calling Palki Malhotra, Script Head, but she remained unavailable.

We now wonder whether the ‘suspense’ factor that is always a part of all DMG news is actually its USP!

Panchi Bora

I don’t know if these are just roumours or is this true. Whatever it is, I guess it just might help the show. If Shilpa returns to the show it will be great as she was the best paired with Karan. Well if she does not and the CVS rope in Panchi for the role I guess then the viewers will get their fourth version of Riddhima. Also she will have to create the chemistry with Karan Singh Graover all over again. Well Shilpa will not have to work much on this as they had created magic last time around and everyone would expect the same again. Also if Jennifer leaves it might not be a bad option as people are not accepting her in the role given to her, I don’t know if there is any of her personal reasons behind the change of the character.

Anyways I hope whatever happens should happen for good. Just for the fact that I want Armaan and Riddhima together whether Riddhima is Jennifer or not.
