Paridhi Sharma to quit Jodha Akbar?
The TV show based on the life of the historical couple Jodha-Akbar has been surrounded by controversies ever since it went on air. And now, buzz is that Paridhi Sharma, who plays queen Jodha, is planning to bid the show adieu.
An insider says, "Rajat Tokas, who plays Akbar in the show, and director Santram Verma are good friends and they share a smooth working relationship. But Paridhi and Rajat don’t see eye to eye, and she has been having a tough time during shoots. Santram apparently has been making her work at odd hours. He even makes her wait unnecessarily at times."
The source adds, "Earlier, when Ekta Kapoor was producing the show, Paridhi had asked her to intervene to resolve the matter. But nothing really changed. As she is not producing the show anymore, things have gotten worse. Paridhi is now contemplating quitting the show."
Ekta Kapoor is ready to face ridicule for Jodha Akbar
This isn’t the first time the show has faced trouble. Last year, 90 crew members reportedly staged a walkout after an issue with the director. Reports claim that Ankita Chaudhary, who used to play Jodha’s maid, was also replaced post her altercation with Santaram.
When contacted Paridhi denied the news, saying, "This isn’t true. I am not quitting. There are certain issues, but it’s nothing major."
