Actress Taapsee Pannu, who was first selected for a Bollywood film with John Abraham as the main lead is now out of the project and Kriti Sanon is in.
The movie in a thriller adapted from the Spanish film The Invisible Guest and is directed by debutante Lakshya. As in most cases, the reason behind the replacement had nothing to do with date or payment issues.
According to a source, “The movie is being jointly produced by John Abraham Entertainment, KriArj Entertainment and Sunir Kheterpal. There was a dispute between the makers regarding the female lead.”
According to a report published in DNA, "Sunir had promised the role to Taapsee much before KriArj came on board. But once KriArj came on board, they wanted a change in the lead actress. Lots of discussions followed, and it was decided that Kriti is a better choice for the role. John also agreed and then the film was offered to Kriti, who came on board.”
Both the actress are well known in both Tollywood as well as Bollywood film industry, so there is no clarity on why Taapsee has been removed from the film. However, rumours are rife that producers have issues with Taapsee.
Meanwhile, Taapsee will be soon seen in Judwaa 2 with Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez. The movie is all set to release on September 29th.
