Why Was Tamannaah Replaced by Anasurya?
The development has taken the fans by surprise since the show has not been completed, yet. As per some reports, Gemini TV has failed to utilise the dates given by the actress to complete the shoot. Thus forcing the makers of the show to find a replacement for her.

However, there are also speculations that claim that the show failed to garner good TRP ratings despite Tamannaah being a top actress. The makers had hoped that her presence would draw audience's attention.

And some feel that her hosting skills looked dull. Hence, Gemini TV decided to replace her with Anasuya who is also popular among the Telugu TV audience. She has tasted a lot of success hosting TV shows. Hence, they zeroed in on her.

Reports claim that Anasuya has already shot a few episodes at the Innovative Film City in Bengaluru.
