Kriti Kharbanda has had her hands filled with amazing projects like Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 4 and the upcoming comedy-drama, Pagalpanti. The gorgeous actress was also supposed to be a part of Amitabh Bachchan-Emraan Hashmi starrer Chehre, but looks like that won’t be happening anymore!
If recent reports are to be believed, Kriti who was earlier roped into co-star along Big B and Emraan is now out of the project, reportedly owing to differences with the production house regarding her dates.
The banner Anand Pandit Motion Pictures, who’re backing the film have confirmed the same through their official tweet that reads, “In the light of recent media reports, we wish to clarify that @kriti_official & @apmpictures have mutually agreed to part ways on a cordial & professional note. We wish her success in all her future endeavours!”
While what exactly when wrong remains unknown, a source close to Deccan Chronicle had previously revealed, “The production complained about multiple issues allegedly caused by Kriti and her team pertaining to her dates. This led to the makers taking a call whether to retain her or not. And so, they decided to do away with her and replace her at the earliest. They are still trying to work out a good actress to replace her because the film is slated to be released in April, and they want the shoot to be completed soon so they can get into the post-production mode.”
That clearly must have hit Kriti, who was finally getting the recognition she deserved in the Industry, but here comes a roadblock.
Meanwhile, Kriti had recently shared her fan moment with Amitabh Bachchan on the first day of shoot of Chehre and revealed how difficult it was to act in front of the legend but she managed it very well.
Chehre is a mystery thriller. The film is directed by Rumi Jaffrey and produced by Anand Pandit Motion Pictures and Saraswati Entertainment Private Limited.
