New Delhi: Sargun Mehta has been roped in to replace child star Jannat Zubair Rahmani as the protagonist in Colors` show `Phulwa`.
The show is set to take a 10-year-leap and Sargun will play the older Phulwa, who turns into a female dacoit.
"I am very excited about this role. It is my privilege that I`ve been chosen to play a grown up Phulwa. The role has a lot of potential," said the actress who was last seen in Zee TV`s `Apno Ke Liye Geeta Ka Dharamyudh`.
"It`s not every day that one gets to play a female dacoit who has gone through a lot of trials and tribulations and has now chosen to blaze her own trail in a manner she thinks fit. It is a very strong character and I hope I`m able to do justice to it," she added.
