BREAKING: KRITI SANON TO REPLACE TAAPSEE PANNU IN THIS FILM
Kriti Sanon is definitely on a roll! While on one hand, she’s riding high on the success of Bareilly Ki Barfi, reports suggest that she has also been roped in for John Abraham’s next venture. Yes, Kriti might’ve just replaced Taapsee Pannu in the John Abraham starrer-yet-untitled film, which is reportedly a remake of the Spanish thriller The Invisible Guest.
There were reports doing the rounds that dates and and Taapsee’s fee were the the reason behind this sudden replacement but a source told DNA the actual reason behind the same and was quoted saying, “The film is being jointly produced by John Abraham Entertainment, KriArj Entertainment, and Sunir Kheterpal. There was a disagreement between the makers regarding the female lead. Sunir, who had the rights to the Spanish thriller, had promised the role to Taapsee much before KriArj came on board. John, who has previously produced Rocky Handsome for Sunir, was in agreement with the choice of the leading lady. But once KriArj came on board, they wanted a change. Debate and discussion followed and it was decided that Kriti is a better choice for the role. John also agreed and then the film was offered to Kriti, who came on board.”
Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor will be co-producing the film along with John Abraham Entertainment. The film rolls this year end and will be helmed by debutant director Lakshya. This won’t be the only film that Kriti will be doing with KriArj. “Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor loved Kriti’s performance in Bareilly Ki Barfi and they have signed her for one more film they will produce now,” added the source.
On the other hand, John Abraham has wrapped up the shoot of his upcoming film Parmanu–The Story of Pokhran. The film revolves around the series of underground nuclear tests carried out by the Indian government at the Indian Army’s Pokhran Test Range in 1998.
