Shraddha Kapoor replaces Priyanka to romance Shahid

‘Aashiqui 2’ actress Shraddha Kapoor are rising the ladder of success slowly and steadily. She was noticed after Mohit Suri’s directed movie, ‘Aashiqui 2’ and now she is all over. She has bagged Ekta Kapoor's 'Milan Talkies' after replacing the established actress Priyanka Chopra. Shraddha will be seen romancing Shahid Kapoor in the film.

At first, Piggy Chops was finalized for the project but when Imran Khan was ousted from the film and Shahid Kapoor was finalized, Priyanka also lost the chance to act in the film. Director Tigmanshu Dhulia felt that a fresh pair should justify the film and hence he has signed Shraddha opposite Shahid.

 Priyanka who was very excited to work with Dhulia calmed down after she was thrown out of the project.

When asked about it, Priyanka said, “They (the Milan Talkies team) haven’t got back to me.”

Says a source close to the project, “After Bullett Raja, where he has cast Saif and Sonakshi together for the first time, Tigmanshu and his producer Ekta Kapoor were keen to cast another untried pair in Milan Talkies.

Imran and Priyanka made a lot of box-office sense together.But when Imran opted out and was replaced by Shahid Kapoor, Tigmanshu had no choice but to replace Priyanka since Shahid and Priyanka together, after Teri Meri Kahaani, spelt doom.”

The makers of ‘Milan Talkies’ had the feeling Shraddha Kapoor and Shahid Kpaoor will do justice to the project and moreover audience would like their combination.

A more coming up for little birdie Shraddha. She has also be offered Vidha Bharadwaj’s adaptation of Halmet. She  is again paired opposite Shahid Kapoor. Sasha was finalized much before and now Shraddha came on the board.

The actress has met the ‘Kaminey’ director.  A secret source added, “Everything is getting finalised. Shraddha is very keen to work with Vishal. On the other hand, she is also doing a film with Mohit Suri, so she is waiting for things to fall in place. Hamlet is expected to go on the floors by the end of the year. Once Vishal is back in India, things will be made official.”

With two films together, we really hope Shahid and Shraddha’s jodi click on the silver screen.
