Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah: The Search For Sonu Comes To An End; Palak Sidhwani Finalised- EXCLUSIVE
After a long hunt, the makers of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah have found a new face for Sonu's character. Palak Sidhwani has been finalised to play the part that was earlier essayed by Nidhi Bhanushali
SpotboyE.com was the first one to tell you that after Disha Vakani (Dayaben) quit Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, another actress bid adieu in February this year. We are talking about Nidhi Bhanushali who essayed the character of Sonu in the show. Now, after all these months, the makers have finally found her replacement and their search ends with Palak Sidhwani. Apart from Palak, even Jinal Jain was in the running to become the new Sonu. Now, a source told us that Palak has won the race. She is a newbie and has been part of many ads and short films in the past.
From a long time, the makers had been conducting numerous look tests and mock shoots for Sonu’s character, and now, they have finally zeroed down on Palak for the role.
A source from the sets exclusively told us that Palak has already begun shooting from yesterday. For those who don’t know, here’s how Nidhi's exit from the show was planned. So, the makers depicted that her character is leaving India for higher studies and now we hear that she will be back in Gokuldham Society, obviously with a new face as the replacement.
When Nidhi quit the show, a source close to her had revealed to us, "She is pursuing her BA from Mithibai College (Mumbai) and is quite a studious person. Now she wants to shape her career with education and wants to devote more time to finish her graduation. Although, the production house is contemplating on the matter by giving her more time to study and less shoot hours. Yet, it is becoming difficult for the actress to manage work and studies together. Hence, she is quitting the show.”
Now, with Palak Sidhwani entering the show as Sonu, let's see how quickly she manages to create a place in the hearts of viewers.
