A few days back, it was being reported in certain sections of the media that Bigg Boss 13's 'Bahu Bani Babe', Devoleena Bhattacharjee, who was last seen on the fiction space in Saath Nibhana Saathiya, will make her comeback to fiction shows with Colors' social drama Barrister Babu. And this had fans of the actress pretty excited. It was reported that owing to the shooting constraint amid the lockdown, that has led to a host of shows being taken off air, the makers had decided to show a leap in the show with Devoleena stepping in as the grown-up Bondita.

She also said, "I can’t say about the future, but for now, Aurra will continue to be a part of the show."
