By Anil Merani| There is big news for Imlie fans. Ankit Siwaich might replace Fahmaan Khan as the new male lead post-gen leap. Megha Chakroborty is also doing the rounds as Sumbul Touqueer Khan’s replacement.
Both the former leads quit not wanting to become parents early in their careers.
Ankit is a known name in the tv circuit, having done shows like Manmohini, Beyhadh 2 and Ishq Mein Marjawan 2: Naya Safar.
Megha, too has featured in Krishna Chali London and Kaatelal & Sons.
As per the source, Ankit has given the screen test and is awaiting confirmation.
If the news is correct, Ankit and Megha will have their work cut, for both the former leads have already made a mark for themselves in the hearts and minds of fandoms.
There is hope for Ankit as Fahmaan had also replaced Gashmeer after the latter had quit for an unknown reason.
Megha will find the going more challenging for Sumbul has been around since day one, so to replace her in the fan consciousness will be an enormous task.
But then, you never know if Ankit- Megha’s chemistry clicks. The sky is the limit, and Gul Khan is the past master of creating iconic jodis Nakkul Surbhi
Our attempt to connect with Ankit and Megha came to nought similar efforts with producer Gul Khan, and the channel spokesperson also did not bear any fruit.
