News is that Kartik Aaryan has removed Taapsee Pannu for his girlfriend Ananya Panday for his upcoming movie which is a remake of Pati Patni Aur Woh.
Reports suggested that Kartik Aaryan had been signed for the 1984 Sanjeev Kumar’s cult classic ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’ and Taapsee Pannu signed as the female lead for the movie which is a love triangle.
However, official announcements from the makers are yet to come on the same.
According to latest developments, Taapsee is no longer a part of the project.
In an exclusive report in Mumbai Mirror, she was replaced at the last minute by the makers who didn’t even notify her about the developments.
Taapsee also claimed that apparently ‘someone’ asked the director to take someone else for the role.
“I was at the narration in November, in the presence of Juno and Abhay. I liked the script and gave it a go-ahead. I was asked to clear my schedule and I complied. Only the clauses remained to be negotiated. But suddenly, they vanished,” she told the daily.
When asked about the reason given to her by the makers, she said director Mudassar Aziz did not give her any justification.
“He was just asked to take someone else. When I tried to confront the producers, I wasn’t given a proper reason. As much as I have been trying to get some clarity on the matter, they’ve been putting off the conversation, which is very weird,” she said.
In the meantime, rumours are rife that Ananya Panday is all set to step into the shoes of Taapsee Pannu and will be paired up opposite Kartik.
As per reports, the duo has done few readings together. The film is reported to go on floors next month.
It is to be noted that only recently, Kartik and Ananya were captured by the shutterbugs leaving together in the same car after their dinner date.
It is being reported since that the duo are dating, but haven’t shared it with the world.
Actor Arjun Kapoor was the original choice for the role. However, after he walked out of the film, the makers roped in Kartik to play the lead.
While Kartik will reprise the role of Sanjeev Kumar in the film, Ananya will reportedly essay the role portrayed by Ranjeeta Kaur in the original.
