Genelia D’Souza would no longer be a part of Bol Bachchan. Though she was supposed to star opposite Abhishek Bachchan in this Rohit Shetty film, there were some differences that cropped up between the makers and the actress over the last few days due to which this decision was taken. A hunt is now on for the second lead in this film that has Ajay Devgn and Asin topping the cast with Abhishek joining in as well.
“For Genelia, this could have been a big ticket into a big Bollywood commercial film”, informs a source, “In fact she was banking upon the film a lot since this Rohit has an impeccable record when it comes to delivering hits. Moreover the film is said to be a remake of a cult classic like Golmaal (the old one starring Amol Palekar) which means a successful outing was guaranteed.”
However, Genelia would have to wait for a while now since there were issues that had started cropping up even before the film had gone on floors.
“All was certainly not well between Genelia and the makers of Bol Bachchan“, the source continues, “Genelia was not quite happy with her role as she felt she deserved better due to her reasonably successful stint down South. On the other hand, the makers were not too happy with her either. The differences just did not seem to end and it was in the interest of both parties to call it a day.”
No one knows though whether Genelia was asked to leave or it was the petite actress who chose to walk out instead of cribbing about her role in the future. However, the fact remains that as of now there is a spot vacant for another girl to step in.
“Since the film is looking at going on floors pretty soon once Rohit is through with the release of Singham, it is currently a critical situation for Bol Bachchan to find an instant replacement”, the source adds, “There are feelers which are already being sent out to other actresses. A decision has to be taken in a jiffy as Ajay, Asin and Abhishek have already allocated their dates and have to move on to their other respective projects soon.”
