Mumbai: It’s been almost a month of popular singing reality show – Sa Re Ga Ma Pa being aired and guess what; there’s already a replacement. Sona Mohapatra, one of the judges of the show has been replaced by another singer – Richa Sharma. Wonder why?
Well, we hear that the channel was allegedly not happy with Sona’s performance. This was Sona’s debut on television and there was a lot of expectation from her. However, her starry attitude on the set did not go well with the other judges and the team members. The channel still wanted to give some time to her, but Sona decided to leave the show mid-way. She said that there are some work commitments which cannot be avoided and so she won’t be able to continue with the show.
The channel had no option but to replace Sona with another singer on the judges’ panel. When contacted, Sona Mohapatra refused to comment on the same.
However, in the official statement released by the channel, Sona Mohapatra stated, “I won’t be part of the Judges panel on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa for the rest of the show’s season in 2018 and my place will be taken by one of my most favorite people in the music industry, the talented, warm and lovely Richa Sharma. I wish the channel, the show and contestants the very best and hope that they showcase some amazing music in the coming days. I will miss my #SonaKaGharana the most and count on my all star team to win India’s heart with their performances in the coming weeks.”
