Vandana Sajnani is a popular theatre artist, television actress, director, and producer. She appeared in TV serials like Zee TV’s Kartavaya, Sony TV’s Shaheen, B4U’s Sukanya, and Saathiya on Sahara TV. There has always been a debate about star kids being preferred the makers for a project, Vandana Sajanani has now raised another issue of the showbiz world wherein the actors have been replaced in a show for having less social media followers. The senior actress shared a video on social media to raise this issue and revealed that it happened to her as well.
In the video, Vandana revealed how she had contacted the casting agents and coordinators lately as she had decided resume work after a maternity break of 2 years. As per the actress, while she had given auditions for several roles, she was also enquired about her social media handle to check on her followers. However, she was later rejected and as per Vandana, the answer was strange. The actress stated that this replacement/rejection was not because of her performance, instead, it was due to her fewer social media followers.

“I was told, ‘Aaj kal unko select kia jata hai jinke Instagram followers zyada ho’,” she added. On probing further in this regard, Vandana got the answer which left her more surprised as it was all about promoting the series or brand. Expressing her disappointment about this ongoing trend, Vandana stated that it isn’t fair because what matters is the performance and capability as an actor. “If you are doing a good job, your selection is based on Instagram followers, it’s not fair,” she added.
