Established actors auditioned for the role, reveal sources, but the makers wanted someone who wasn't overexposed on television.
Digangana exited her last show Qubool Hai over constant tiffs with co-actors and the lead actress as well as over her irksome behaviour. Apparently, she and her parents would interfere in everything while on set. A source says, "We hope the girl has mended her ways and will value the title role. She starts shooting in October."
