There was buzz that the Dangal girl Sanya Malhotra will be seen in Anand L. Rai’s Manmarziyan, but now it seems that she is no longer a part of that project. Anurag Kashyap had roped her in for the film. 

“Sanya was supposed to be part of Manmarziyan but now she is no longer doing the film. The script went through few changes and now Tapsee Pannu has been approached for the same,” a source close to the film revealed. Currently, Sanya is busy shooting for Ritesh Batra’s next untitled project.

Manmarziyan initially had Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar in the lead roles. Earlier, Ashwini Iyer Tiwari was supposed to direct this film, but reportedly she opted out of the project and chose to direct Bareilly Ki Barfi instead.
