Life OK’s Savitri, which is slowly getting popular amongst the viewers, would now witness the entry of hot Nigaar Khan. The popular television face, last seen in Sony’s Hongey Judaa Na Hum, would be seen donning a negative character on the show.


Apparently, it was earlier reported that this particular character would be played by Meenakshi Arya of Life OK’s 26-12 fame. In fact, Meenakshi had herself confirmed the news about her entry in the show. “Yes, I am playing a negative character but there are two shades. I am playing a double role”, she had shared in an interview a few days back. However, as per the latest update the show makers have decided to cast Nigaar instead. “Nigaar Khan is replacing Meenakshi Arya”, shared an insider.


Nigaar who is pretty much glad at grabbing the offer confirmed the news; however, she did not divulge any information regarding the character she would be portraying in the serial. “Yes, I am going to be in Savitri. I haven’t started shooting for it yet. I will be starting shooting for the same in a while and only then will I be able to talk more about my character in the show”, said the actress.


Interestingly, while the channel has maintained silence over its decision of replacing Meenakshi with Nigaar, the 26-12 actress recently stated that she has been replaced because the show required a more mature face. “I am told by the production house that I am looking younger in front of Riddhi. I must look elder to Riddhi in order to play this character. Nigaar Khan will look mature in this character. That’s the reason why she has been roped in to play this character”, said Meenakshi.


Well, it seems like Nigaar’s entry in the show would help increase the viewer base considering she has a good fan base.
