Mumbai: Actress Mouni Roy, who made her Bollywood debut with Akshay Kumar-starrer 'Gold', was recently roped in as the lead actress in Bole Chudiyan alongside talented Nawazuddin Siddiqui. However, the actress is no longer part of the project as the producer felt that she was unprofessional.
It's been said that Mouni refused to do the film by saying that she doesn’t like the script now. Interestingly, she had said on record to a leading newspaper about Nawazuddin being a fantastic co-actor and how much she loved the script.
When quipped has Producer Rajesh Bhatia says, “We deny any one has been rude to Mouni, there were 25 people in conference room when she walked in 3 hours late for a reading. Infact she has been irresponsible and busy holidaying & attended only 1/1/2 reading. We have invested big amount of money and if asking someone in a civil manner to be professional & committed to the role is being rude than sorry we are in the serious business of making movies with high stakes and it’s not a hobby. From the time we have signed her, she and her agency Toabh have been highly unprofessional and irresponsible. Even after signing the MOU and paying her. Even for the final narration held two days back on 29/5/19, she walked in at 5.30 pm for a 3pm narration embarrasing the producers, director and actor. As for the role it’s one of the best scripts & as for creatives it’s director’s call but let me ensure you the role of girl in the film is central and from girls point of view with 5 songs. It’s amusing to hear her complaining of full fledged heroine role which is far superior unlike her other blink & miss roles. Frankly I think she knows she is been guilty & just trying to defend herself & be in the news.”
“The actor, director, me & Kiran as content head & as producers did our best to reason out with her about lack of her professionalism and dedication but she suddenly lost cool & was ill tempered and started throwing high handed attitude near all seniors which was shocking. We would rather replace now than suffer as ours is one schedule film. Let me ensure that Bole Chudiyan is going ahead as scheduled with a new heroine. Woodpecker Movies as a Production House stays fully invested in the project and will go ahead with the film with a new heroine,” he adds.
Bole Chudiyan marks the directorial debut of Shamas Nawab Siddiqui and is produced by Rajesh Bhatia and Kiran Bhatia under their banner Woodpecker Movies. The film, which is going on floors in June end will see another established actress opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui now. The makers are meeting A-list actresses and will soon announce the lead actress....
