Lisa Haydon in legal mess after walking out of film at last moment
Model-turned-actress Lisa Hayon, who garnered much appreciation for her role in National Award winning film ‘Queen’, might have got herself into a legal mess.
A day after announcing about getting married to boyfriend Dino Lalvani, Lisa walked out of Abhishek Pathak’s ‘Atithi in London’. The sultry actress said no to the film at the last minute and director has warned her of legal action. The shooting for the film was to begin on September 24.
Speaking about the entire incident, the ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ producer told a leading daily, “We had locked Lisa for the role, exchanged contracts and even got her visa ready. The set was ready in Filmalaya studio but we got a call from her manager ten days before the schedule that Lisa wasn’t interested in doing the film anymore.”
A furious Abhishek went on, “Suddenly, I hear from someone that she’s getting married which is why she can’t do our film. We had everything ready, from visas for the entire crew to locations. Now all that money is down the drain. My crew’s work permit visa is valid only for a limited period so I don’t know what to do now.”
He further added, “These people come from abroad and don’t understand how people put in effort, sweat and blood to make a film. We’re taking legal action against Lisa. Her talent management agency should take responsibility for this mess”.
Meanwhile, reports suggested that the makers have roped in Kriti Kharbanda to replace the ‘Houseful 3’ actress. Kriti made her Bollywood debut with the recently released horror film ‘Raaz Reboot’.
‘Atithi in London’ is the sequel to 2010 comedy ‘Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge’, and also stars Kartik Aaryan, Paresh Rawal and Tanvi Azmi.
