Starry days ahead

PRECOCIOUS SHWETA Prasad has touched people's hearts as Sruthi in Kahani Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki.

At the young age of 11 she has a National Award under her belt for her role in Makdee (which featured Shabana Azmi in the role of a witch), is a familiar face on the small screen and will shortly be seen in more Hindi films as well.

Those following Shweta in Kahani... would have noticed that Shruti has now grown up. People glued to this serial for the past three years would miss Shweta now.

"I was informed about the change quite a few months ago. We kept it under wraps as Ekta Kapoor did not want it mentioned," says the young kid. "She cried a lot when she was informed about it. She was attached to the serial," adds her mother. For Shweta, the Aggarwal family was a second family - and Balaji Telefilms a second home. "I was upset and I cried a lot. I am going to miss them. Just the other day Sakshi Aunty (Parvati) called me up and I spoke to her at length," says Shweta. But all her can fans can see her in Karishma ka karishma and Magic Make-up box to be telecast on Zee TV every Sunday.

Shweta will be seen in films as well - the Idreams Production tentatively titled as Jasmine to be directed by Sandeep Chowta (starring Nagarjuna and Tabu) and in the sequel to Makdee. Perhaps if all goes well she will be in one of Ramgopal Varma Productions too.
