After much speculation, it is Shilpa Shinde who has stepped in the shoes of Kamya Panjabi to play Daya maayi in the telly serial Do Dil Ek Jaan (on channel Life OK). Kamya has quit the show to enter in Bigg Boss 7 house.
Shilpa, who was last seen in a comedy show Chidiyaghar, will now essay the antagonist in the show. The queen of her basti, she trusts her son Raghu (Ayaz Ahmed) blindly. A woman marred by dark past, she disapproves of Antara and will decide the fate of the two lovers, Antara and Raghu.
Shilpa says, “I have been waiting to play a negative role for quite some time now. The role of Daya maayi is unlike the usual vamps you would see on television. She does not involve in kitchen politics but is a strong and committed woman who would go at any lengths to get her job done. She has a lot of interesting shades to her and I am happy to be able to portray such a powerful character.”
