Somraj Maity replaces Joy Mukherjee in Jiyon Kathi

Actor Joy Mukherjee allegedly hit his Jiyon Kathi co-star Aindrila Sharma due to a set dispute last month. Aindrila had filed a FIR against the actor at the Regent Park police station and the program's producers had planned to eliminate Joy from the protagonist if the actor was found guilty. Looking at a new development after the incident, Aindrila said: “The case was transferred to court and the hearing is pending in March. The creators of Jiyon Kathi have replaced Joy with actor Somraj Maity . He is really a great co-star to work with and there’s a healthy professional atmosphere on the sets now.” Somraj, on the other hand is excited to be a part of the serial. He said, “For me being on the sets of Jiyon Kathi is extremely special. I have worked with Leena aunty, Saibal Banerjee and Arka Ganguly before. Confirmation for Jiyon Kathi happened over a phone call. They wanted me to do it and I wanted to work with them again. Plus actors like Anushua Majumdar Bharat Kaul Rahul Chakraborty , Aindrila Sharma, Mishmee Das and others are part of the cast, so it is a great learning experience. Only two weeks ago I started filming for the series and I love it. ”
