The ugly tussle between director Abhishek Kapoor and his Kedarnath producers has gotten tense. Abhishek, no stranger to cast replacement, has reportedly approached Vicky Kaushal of Masaan fame, to replace Sushant Singh Rajput. The reason? Sushant refused to block any more unused dates for Kedarnath.
A source says, “Gattu (Abhishek) is no stranger to replacements. During Fitoor, he sacked someone as senior and legendary as Rekha, and got Tabu on board. Kedarnath started on the wrong foot when he got the cinematographer replaced in the very first schedule. Then it was Sushant’s turn.”
Apparently unhappy with Sushant’s unwillingness to dole out more dates, Abhishek approached Vicky. “Sushant’s dates kept getting postponed over and over. Gattu expected him to be around at his beck and call. Sushant finally left for Chambal to shoot Abhishek Chaubey’s Sonechariya. This annoyed Gattu and he approached Vicky.
