Mahek Chahal who plays Manjulika on Colors new show ‘Kawach’ has been replaced. The worst part was the fact that Mahek wasn’t even aware of the fact that they were replacing her for Sara Khan.
However, as Mahek Chahal had already made her commitment to the show, she decided to work as much as she could. But as her health kept declining hence causing a trouble to the producers of the show. Rumor also has it that Sara Khan won’t be replacing Mahek but she just to play Manjulika’s sister.
However, the shooting schedule has taken a toll on her health thereby making it difficult for her to recover from the fractured knee. Also, the script demands Mahek Chahal to perform some daredevil stunts but considering her deteriorating health, the makers had no option but to replace her. Apparently, Sara Khan has been approached to play the role of Manjulika.
