Chandni Bhagwanani replaces Muskan Bamne as Pakhi in Rupali Ganguly starrer Anupamaa - Here's why
Actress Chandni Bhagwanani has been finally roped in as the replacement for Muskan Bamne who recently walked out of Rupali Ganguly starrer Anupamaa.
The popular television series Anupamaa has taken a significant leap over 5 years, introducing notable changes in the storyline. Rupali Ganguly and Gaurav Khanna, portraying Anupamaa and Anuj, have parted ways in the show. The plot thickens as Anuj accuses Anupamaa of being an inadequate mother, leading to Anu's departure and relocation abroad, thereby fulfilling Anupamaa's dream of going to America.
Muskan Bamne quits Anupamaa
However, this transition comes with additional shifts with Muskan Bamne, who portrayed Pakhi, Anupamaa's daughter, deciding to exit the series after a three-year stint. Muskan's departure stems from her reluctance to age on-screen, particularly as the show's creators planned to introduce a pregnancy track through IVF. The 24-year-old actress expressed concerns about the potential impact on her career.

Confirming Muskan's exit, several media reports reveal that Chandni Bhagwanani will step into the role of Pakhi in the Gaurav Khanna starrer. Chandini, known for her role as Pallavi Thakur in the popular TV show Imlie, brings her talent to this new character. Her previous appearance in Dangal TV's Sindoor Ki Keemat as Bitti attests to her versatility.
When Muskan got trolled because of her on-screen character
Muskan, whose character Pakhi had grey shades, faced criticism on social media for the character's immature actions that often hurt Anupamaa. The actress clarified that she was portraying a character and urged netizens to distinguish between fiction and reality. However, the trolling escalated to a personal level, prompting Muskan to call out the trolls and defend herself.
Anupamaa started airing on Star Plus on 13 July 2020 and is digitally available on Disney+ Hotstar. Produced by Rajan Shahi and Deepa Shahi under the banner of Director's Kut Productions, the drama serial is a remake of Star Jalsha's Bengali show Sreemoyee.
