While many had been reporting that Shefali Sharma had been locked for Siddharth Kumar Tewary's ChandraGupta Maurya, that is not the case. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Shefali has been shown the door due to her unjust behaviour and stepping into her shoes is actress Sneha Wagh, who will be playing the new age mother in the show. Playing a mother is no new thing for Sneha, who has played and aced the role of a mothr in shows like Ek Veer Ki Ardaas Veera, Sher-E-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjeet Singh among others. Ek Veer Ki Ardaas…Veera Serial’s Executive Producer Mukesh Mishra Sentenced for 7 Years for Raping an Actress.
A source close to the production informs us, "Shefali had been locked and was about to start shooting. However, right before starting the shoot, she wanted to renegotiate on already agreed terms and put out unreasonable demands. She tried to corner the production house being fully aware that the shoot was scheduled the next day. "
The source continued, "The production house is known to be one of the best in the industry and they refused to tolerate Shefali's blackmail, as they have no tolerance for unethical people and hence they replaced her."
As for how Sneha came into the picture, she was apparently also short listed for the role and had met with the production house earlier. So she stepped in and has already started shooting for the role.
Chandragupta Maurya is another chapter which has marked the ending of the mega-series Porus, a finite show as planned, and the key characters are continuing to play pivotal roles in Chandragupta Maurya.
