Kriti Sanon in, Taapsee Pannu out! – The real story behind Sanon replacing Pannu in a film with John Abraham
Kriti Sanon and Taapsee Pannu
After Hrs was the first to tell you that John Abraham and Taapsee Pannu were being paired opposite each other in a thriller adapted from the Spanish film The Invisible Guest. Now, we can confirm that Kriti Sanon has replaced Taapsee in the film to be directed by debutante Lakshya.
It’s not a date issue or price issue that led to this change, as it is, in most cases. There’s a tale behind this development. Says a source, “The film is being jointly produced by John Abraham Entertainment, KriArj Entertainment and Sunir Kheterpal. There was a disagreement between the makers regarding the female lead.”
Sunir, who had the rights to the Spanish thriller, had promised the role to Taapsee much before KriArj came on board. John, who has previously produced Rocky Handsome for Sunir, was in agreement with the choice of the leading lady. But once KriArj came on board, they wanted a change. Debate and discussion 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.”
This won’t be the only film that Kriti will be doing with KriArj. “Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor loved Kriti’s performance in Bareilly Ki Barfi and they have signed her for one more film they will produce now,” adds our source. The film rolls this year end.
