Telly actress Pratyusha Banerjee is believed to have walked out the sets of 'Darr Sabko Lagta' when asked to wear a revealing dress

Infamous for tantrums on set, Pratyusha Banerjee allegedly walked off in a huff from the set of horror show 'Darr Sabko Lagta'. The television actress had been roped in to play the lead in an episode. However, before the camera could start rolling, she created a scene when asked to wear a revealing costume.

Says a crew member, "Pratyusha had allotted dates for the shoot and did a look test a few days ago. However, when she came on set and saw the costume, she refused to wear it and created a scene. It was a simple sleeveless top. Strangely, she agreed to wear it at first."

Those in the know say the production house tried to sort the matter, but the actress refused to budge. This, in turn, infuriated the crew.

A source says, "It was surprising as she was given a similar garment during the look test and she did not object to it. Though the production team tried its best to settle the matter, she walked out. We had no option but to cancel the shoot for the day and had to bear a loss of nearly Rs 30 lakh."

Apparently, the producers have replaced her with Sonal Vengurlekar, who was last seen in 'Shastri Sisters'.

Pratyusha and producer Priti Sinha remained unavailable for comment. However, a source from the production house confirms the news.
