A source said, “How can Nargis expect the dates of all the other actors Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor, Piyush Mishra and Akshay and the schedule to be changed just because she wants to do a Hollywood production? It’s natural for Akshay to be upset. When someone helps you, you don’t take undue advantage of his goodness.”
Let us remind you that Nargis was the first choice for Akki’s ‘Khiladi 786’ and she was said to leave the movie as her agency allegedly interfered too much in the contract terms and conditions.
“The producers, apprehensive of further issues cropping up during the making of the film, decided to cast Asin instead. Feeling bad for Nargis, Akshay had told her that he would make good the loss by ensuring that she’s cast in his future project,” the source said.
Talking about the film, 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; it’s heartbreaking, but I had to let the film go.”
Akshay’s spokesperson says, “Akshay understands the fact that her priority is making a career in Hollywood and has already moved on to finalize another leading lady.”
Well, we are not surprised hearing about Akki being upset with Nargis, as the actress has shown an unprofessional behavior.
