Replacing the lead actors has become quite common in television serials.

Actors quit either to take a short break from their hectic schedules or in search of greener pastures. Viewership and the serial's TRPs drop, as audiences often don't take kindly to a replacement.

However, many actors have brought a fresh appeal to the character they stepped in to replace the originally-cast actor.

Click through the slide show, and VOTE on whether the new actors made good replacements, or if you preferred the original actor.

According to reports, the Balika Vadhu producers were growing impatient with Banerjee's tantrums and attitude.
