TikTok Star Avneet Kaur Quits Alladin Naam Toh Suna Hoga, Ashi Singh To Star Opposite Siddharth Nigam
Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai actor Ashi Singh will now play Yasmine opposite Siddharth Nigam.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has taken quite a toll on the television industry. While shooting for tv shows has now been resumed, there are some actors who do not feel safe resuming work. TikTok star Avneet Kaur is one of those actors and has quit the popular role of Yasmine in Alladin: Naam Toh Suna Hi Hoga. Ashi Singh, who was last seen in Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai, will replace Avneet on the show.
Ashi Singh spoke in detail about taking up the role of Yasmin from Avneet Kaur with TOI. She told the news portal, “As an artiste, I strive to play different roles, and Yasmine is unlike Naina. I had never imagined that I would be part of a fantasy show. So, when ‘Aladdin’ was offered to me, I didn’t think of anything else. Also, I will be performing action for the first time on screen. I will work hard to play the part convincingly and the challenge involved in it is another reason that prompted me to take it up.”
Avneet Kaur also discussed her departure from the show. She said, “I decided to leave the show because of the coronavirus crisis. I suffered from dengue last year, but resumed work despite my immunity not being strong. There was the stress of preparing for my board exams, too, at that time. It made me really weak. So, I am scared of resuming shoots at the moment. My parents and I decided that it’s better for me to quit. I am sad, but health comes first.”
