Face replacements in upcoming hindi films
The recent news about the director Madhur Bhandarkar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan over his film “Heroine” shocked every one. The news of Ash’s pregnancy have almost stopped Madhur’s dream project “Heroine”. Now after a while he has finally decided to continue the film by replacing some other actor in Ash’s role. It is still in talks who to grab the role. Madhur is yet to finalise on Kareen, Katrina or some one fresh. But during all these issues, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan never talked about this controversy with Madhur Bhandarkar. She was not available for any comment.
Apart from this major replacement, the year 2011 will also experience a major number of face changes in the upcoming films.
Prachi replaced Genelia:
In the upcoming comedy movie “Bol Bachchan” initially Ajay Devgan, Asin, Genelia and Abhishek were thought in the leading roles. But suddenly Genelia D’ Souza discontinued the project. Thus she had to be replaced by Prachi in this film.
Shatrugan Sinha was replaced by Raj Babbar:
Veteran actor Shatrugan Sinha backed out stating he won’t play the role of Kareena Kapoor’s father in the film “ Bodyguard”. Hence the role was offered to Raj Babbar. Apart from Kareen and Raj Babbar this film “Bodyguard” also stars Salman Khan in the leading role.
How many of us even remember Kunal Kapoor after Rang De Basanti. But Arjun Rampal’s heavy rate has badly affected him in Don 2 and he has been replaced by Kunal Kapoor. Kunal is very excited, since he has bagged a role opposite King Khan in Don 2. Although ARjun isn’t a part of the upcoming project “Don 2” yet he had twitted his best wishes for the team Don 2.
It seems that Arjun’s high quotes has started effecting him quiet badly. In the next project “ Housefull 2” he has been replaced at the very last moment. As per the sources from the film, Akshay Kumar and Ritesh Deshmukh will be there in the sequel but Arjun has been replaced due to his high rates. Rampal has demanded Rs 2.5 crore for his role. Failing to pay such high rate the producer Sajid Nadiadwala has decided to replace him. They finally decided on Rahul Khanna to play the role in this film. The sequel of the film will also show changes in other characters like Paresh Rawal, Nana Patekar and John Abraham.
