The TRP of the show dropped drastically as the viewers denied accepting her replacement Toral Rasputra.
But enough of sobbing, this Bong beauty is making a comeback on television. Yes, after the entire hullabaloo to get her back, following her exit from Balika Vadhu Pratyusha is finally returning on small screen in a totally different avatar.
Prats will play the character of a modern bahu in an untitled serial which will apparently air on Star Plus. Her new serial is set up in Kolkata and Miss Banerjee will wear Indo-western outfits for this show.
Pratyusha, who hails from Jamshedpur, was a student of St Xavier's College in Kolkata before she got the offer to play Anandi.
Well, Pratyusha is all set to leave her Anandi avatar behind and is set to grab prime time favour of the audience.
