Ali Asgar to quit SAB TV's Jeannie Aur Juju? Will the show survive or end?


SAB TV’s fantasy show Jeannie Aur Juju, produced by Eagle Films Productions seems to be bagging all the limelight via controversies related to its actors being unhappy with the show’s progress. Also, viewers were surprised when Giaa Maanek all of a sudden got replaced by Rubina Dilaik for the role of Jeannie. The very recent exit of Amit Tandon and Neha Mehta from the show has apparently left the boat sinking. And to add to it are the rumours of the show going off air in the near future.

We now hear that a final decision on whether the show will continue or end will be taken sometime next week.

If this is not enough, there is news doing rounds that the male lead Ali Asgar too wants to quit the serial. The reason being that he is not able to handle both Jeannie Aur Juju and his other popular Colors’ show Comedy Nights with Kapil. And it goes without saying that Colors must be paying him more as well.
Our source adds that Ali keeps telling his Jeannie co-stars that he is unhappy and would prefer to quit the project.

Apparently, Ali had also put in his papers when Giaa quit, but the producers cajoled him to stay on for a couple of months more. Now that the interim period is over, the creatives are again convincing Ali to stay on failing which they would decide to continue with the show with a replacement. In fact, there is also a buzz of him moving out of the show by 12 December, 2013.

Navina Bole who plays the role of Priya confirmed the news about the renewal talk happening with Ali, but did not know anything about the actor wanting to exit the show. “I don’t know if he is unhappy. We are a cool unit and I am sure things can be worked out if what you say is correct.” She further goes on to add that the ratings of Jeannie Aur Juju have gone up since the entry of Rubina.

We tried to get in touch with Ali but to no avail.

We then spoke to the producer Rajeev Mehra who denied everything and said, “The show will go on; the channel has not told me anything. I also don’t have any information about Ali wanting to leave; I will talk to him and ask.”

Although it has been a while since Giaa quit Jeannie Aur Juju, the rumours on the reasons related to her exit keep floating around. According to one such report, Giaa was asking too much money and was threatening to quit the show and take up another project, if her demands were not met. Hence the channel decided to replace her rather than succumbing to what they perceived as blackmail.

However, when we spoke to Giaa she rubbished the story adding, “I will not want to get into more detail. I am sure the truth will come out one day.”

A source close to Giaa though added that the allegations of blackmail are laughable, for today no one is indispensable. Was Giaa not replaced in her debut Star Plus show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya? Also she is not looking for any other show at the moment. She will take a break now that she is no longer doing Jeannie Aur Juju and will recharge her batteries before contemplating a comeback.

The same source further added that Giaa was not replaced as our above source’s assertion. She quit the show because the makers were asking her to continue after her contract expired at a much lower rate than what was paid to her before.

Well, with so many problems, will Jeannie Aur Juju remain afloat? If so, what are the immediate changes that the makers will come up with?

Giaa Maanek out of Jeannie Aur Juju, Shivshakti Sachdev roped in as replacement
It’s chaos on the sets of SAB TV’s Jeannie Aur Juju!!!
Well, Tellychakkar.com has learnt that the show’s female lead Giaa Maanek has been asked to leave.
Like really? 

The answer is “yes”. 

Our sources have suggested that Giaa was acting way too pricey and after her starry tantrums touched sky high, the makers (Eagle Films) decided to let her go. 

“The show was supposed to end in this month. But it later got an extension of 50 episodes. But since sometime Giaa has been creating issues for the production house. She has been complaining about clothes, shooting timings and what not. Finally, with things going out of hand, she got sacked.”
We called up Giaa to learn more on the piping hot development and she said, “I will talk to you and my fans when the time is right.”

So who is replacing Giaa? Well, we have the answer…it’s none other than cute and petite Shivshakti Sachdev. Shivshakti gained fame playing the role of Bebo in the show Sabki Laadli Bebo
We called up Shivshakti and her dad answered the phone. Shivshakti was busy and her dad asked us to get back later, which we will do in coming time. 

Furthermore, we have also learnt that Amit Tandon (Rahul) has also stopped shooting for the show and actor Karan Goddwani (Johnny) will soon make a comeback. 

We also got in touch with SAB TV Head Anooj Kapoor and he also chose not to comment for he was “busy in a meeting”.
