There is a disturbing story doing the rounds that Randeep Hooda has been sacked from his role in Mira Nair’s BBC adaptation of Vikram Seth’s epic novel A Suitable Boy. The story goes that while shooting in Lucknow, Hooda misbehaved with his makeup man and was immediately asked to leave.
While Nair refrained from commenting on the issue, a source from the series denied any such incident. “As far as we know, Randeep had a cameo appearance. He completed it and left as per the schedule. If anything happened with a makeup man, we are not aware of it. Mira certainly didn’t ask him to quit. They’ve known each other for years, they get along like a house on fire,” says the source.
