The producers at Woodpecker Films announced a new casting coup for their next, Bole Chudiyan. The film produced by Rajesh Bhatia and directed by Nawazuddin Siddiqui‘s brother Shamas Siddiqui was set to feature Nawazuddin and Mouni Roy. The announcement of the same was made in March 2019.
But here’s some sad news now. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Mouni has quit the film and her abrupt exit has further delayed the project.
Nawazuddin had allotted over thirty days for this quirky romantic comedy. However, now owing to Roy’s abrupt, the first schedule has got postponed and dates are going in vain. The makers are now busy trying to find a replacement for the actress. The shoot is at a halt and will commence as soon as the leading is finalized.
The shoot of Nawazuddin’s Sacred Games Season 2 is affected by this change.
Earlier, Mouni Roy’s spokesperson said in a statement,
“Mouni Roy is no longer a part of the film. Mouni has done many films before and has had a successful career, where everyone has vouched for her professionalism. Mr. Rajesh Bhatia, on the other hand, is making his second film. His first film has already run into many controversies, where he has even accused a senior actor of interference. He is now claiming that Mouni is not a professional, whereas there are several emails and text messages proving otherwise, which we will be happy to share. Even the contract isn’t signed because of the discrepancies in it. We don’t wish to say anything more to this. Anyone sensible can see what’s going on. Mouni chooses to maintain a dignified stance and doesn’t believe in mudslinging. She wishes them the very best.”
