The decision to bring in Sen was taken by the show's creative team after the cast was left in a neck deep crisis with the politician's sudden exit.

However, Sen's appearance on the show can only be confirmed after the shoot for Friday night episode. If not Sen, then the "2 States" team Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor will make an appearance on the show, informed a source to The Times of India.

"Viewers must have noticed that in the recent past, we have had a good mix of celebs like Vijendra Singh and Jwala Gutta, Tushar Kapoor and Jeetuji on our show. On the same lines, we approached Sushmita and turned out that she's a huge fan our show. She readily agreed to come over. Sushmita is one of the rare combinations of wit, beauty and intellect and we're sure it'll be one pataka of an episode," a source told DNA.
