Nargis said, “I was very excited about ‘Shaukeen’ and we had been preparing for a while now. There was another opportunity in the pipeline and we tried to work out the dates so that I could be a part of both but the dates were clashing. I couldn’t have asked the team to wait for me, so it’s heartbreaking but I had to let the film go.”
“I was really excited to work with the team of ‘Shaukeen’ and Abhishek Sharma, who is a terrific director. A bond with the film and team members of ‘Shaukeen’ remains and I wish them all the best,” she added.
And now if the reports are to be believed, Shraddha Kapoor might replace the actresss in the film.
For the remake of Basu Chatterjee’s 1982 hit film, the makers are looking for a new leading lady after Nargis Fakhri walked out citing date issues.
A source said, “Talks are on with Shraddha but nothing is finalized.”
Rumi Jaffrey was going to direct the film, but later Abhishek Sharma of ‘Tere Bin Laden’ fame replaced him. The film is scheduled to go on floors in April.
It looks like Nargis’s loss will be Shraddha’s gain.
