Just yesterday we had reported that Urmila Matondkar and Esha Deol had opted out of Apoorva Lakhias Shootout At Lokhandwala. But Lakhia has lost no time in finding a replacement for Urmila. He along with the producer, Sanjay Gupta have cast Neha Dhupia to play Sanjay Dutts wife, originally to be played by Urmila. This will be the first time that Neha will be seen in a drama, based on real life. Gupta has also signed Neha for Dus Kahaniyan. It seems that Apoorva and Sanjay were impressed with Nehas performance in Chup Chup Ke. And so she was on board for Shootout At Lokhandwala.
Putting films like Julie and Sheesha behind her, Neha now hopes to start afresh.
