Is Digangana Suryavanshi TV's new tantrum queen?
'Ek Veer Ki Ardaas... Veera' actress Digangana Suryavanshi is fast gaining the infamy of being the most difficult TV actor
Notorious for her tantrums on the sets, television actress Digangana Suryavanshi is said to have raised the hackles of 'Ek Veer Ki Ardaas... Veera' makers time and again. While producer Yash Patnaik had received complaints about her alleged unprofessional behaviour a few months ago, last week it was her unpunctual ways that ticked him off, according to insiders.
Now, she is said to have had an argument with the show hairdresser and the shoot was halted for nearly five hours. A source says, "We heard some loud voices coming from the make-up room and realised she was at it again but the reason for the fight is unknown. The production house intervened and tried to sort out the matter. However, she sulked and refused to shoot. It took a lot of convincing to get her back on the sets but by then half a day had been wasted."
A unit hand says, "Even after being reprimanded for her behaviour in the past, Digangana has chosen not to change her ways and keeps arguing with her co-actors. She doesn't even come on time and shoots at her own convenience. In fact, we have faced telecast issues because of this."
Recently, the actress had a fallout with her make-up artiste and walked out of the shoot, adds another source. "It wasn't the first time that she left the sets abruptly. Ever since she took part in Box Cricket League, she leaves early on the pretext of attending practice sessions. Most of her co-stars don't even talk to her," the source reveals.
It is believed that the production house used to pamper her, which has resulted in her can-do-what-I-want attitude. The unit member says, "To maintain a peaceful atmosphere on the sets, the production team has decided to have limited communication with her. If the matter goes out of hand, we will have to take some action."
While the actress chose not to comment on the argument with the hairdresser, she talks about other allegations. "I have taken permission from the production team and the channel to take part in the cricket league. I go for net practise only after finishing my shots. And I do my make-up myself. So, all these allegations don't make sense at all," she says.
