Apoorva Lakhia reveals producers asked him to replace Vivek Oberoi from Shootout at Lokhandwala: “I am not hiring any person for his personality”
In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Apoorva said, “At that time when I casted Vivek, a lot of producers called me and said ‘Replace him or we won’t work with you.’ But I had given a commitment to Vivek, so how do you go back from a commitment? And Sanju sir supported me, Suniel Shetty supported me, Sanjay Gupta supported me. So if there are guys are supporting me, I thought why should I think about the future? If Shootout became a hit, whoever rejected me will come back.”
He added, “But Vivek was a good actor. Whatever he did was wrong, he shouldn’t have done it, but that does not mean he is not talented. I am hiring for his acting abilities. I am not hiring any person for his personality. He is a professional and he was really good when I was reading with him. I think he did a fantastic job.”
Shootout in Lokhandwala also starred Sanjay Dutt, Suniel Shetty and Arbaaz Khan along with Tusshar Kapoor, Rohit Roy, Aditya Lakhia, Shabbir Ahluwalia, and Amitabh Bachchan.
