Channel 7 is under havoc due to the remake of old lakorn “Douy Rang Athitarn version 2010”.
Formerly the leading casts were set to be “Poh” Nuttawuth Skidjai & “Pinky” Savika Chaidech. But in the last minute the leading roles were switched to favorite couple “Pancake” Khemanid Jamikorn & “Weir” Sukollawat Kanarot.
Apparently rumor has it that Weir hardly wants to be apart of this production because he’s not too keen on portraying the role of a much older man. He felt, the viewers will find his character to be unrealistic.
The feedback from the internet proved – Weir’s thoughts were true. Netizens felt Weir is not suitable for the role when compared to the successful older version of “Duoy Rang Athitarn” which starred “Tui” Saranyoo Wonggrajang and “Kob” Suvanant Kongying.
And the most recent problem to be encountered on the set is the newest rumor to say “Yui” Jiranan Monajam who was cast as Pancake’s sister has pulled out from the lakorn. Despite having her name in the official poster of the TV drama series, Yui did a no show to the Opening Press Conference. The staff from Kantana said, she was unable to attend as Yui was busy working on her other lakorns.
However, a reliable source confirmed to Daradaily that Yui has pulled out from this project because she felt her character was too plain and any newcomer could pull off this role. There’s no need for an experienced actress such as herself to portray this character. Another gossip also claimed, Yui simply doesn’t want to take on a role that is inferior to Pancake.
At this stage Kantana Production can not confirm whether Yui will definitely be in this lakorn or not. They just clarified to say they haven’t heard about the rumor that Yui plans to pull out. Kantana said, at this rate – they are not certain whether or not there will be anymore changes to the casting because the lakorn has only just begun filming.
