Shaleen OUT; Arjun Bijlani IN for Drashti Dhami’s upcoming show!

Another legendary jodi in making!!

A piece of shocker is awaiting for all the fans of Shaleen Malhotra, Arjun Bijlani and Drashti Dhami out there.

Wondering what is the connection between the three of them?

Let us clear that..All the fans have been excited and anticipating actress Drashti Dhami’s upcoming show, tentatively titled, ‘Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil’. Several pictures from the shoot of the show were leaked a while ago, where the looks of Drashti and Shaleen were also revealed..

However, a major development is set to shock one and all…

Actor Shaleen Malhotra has now being DROPPED from the equation and a new face is being roped in.

And that new face is none other than, everyone’s favorite, ‘Naagin’ star, Arjun Bijlani.

YES! Rub your eyes and read again, you have totally read it right..

Shaleen and Drashti did a mock shoot where things were turning out to be going totally fine. However, after some apparent creative issues and discussions Shaleen was dropped.

And now, cashing in the excessive popularity of Arjun and the fact that he won’t be part of ‘Naagin 2’, Arjun Bijlani has been roped in by the makers.

We contacted Shaleen, who said, “Firstly, I don’t even know where did this news come from that I have been finalized for the show. It was a MOCK shoot and nothing was ever confirmed. Several actors do mock shoots and so did I. There is nothing else to it.”

On being asked about being dropped due to ‘creative’ differences, he said, “The term ‘creative’ differences is such a misleading one. There were never any creative differences as I had no problem with the shoot, concept or anything. Things were absolutely fine. But, as I said, it was a mock shoot and whether the respective actor is doing the show or not, he/she is bee informed soon. And I was too.”

Well, that clears stuff pretty much, doesn’t it? Now that Arjun is the NEW face, are you excited for the fresh pairing of Arjun-Drashti?
