Rana Daggubati replaces Abhishek Bachchan in RGV’s Department

After sharing screen-space with Abhishek Bachchan in Dum Maaro Dum, South actor Rana Daggubati has now gone ahead and replaced Abhishek in Ram Gopal Varma's forthcoming flick Department.

RGV's Department was to star Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Abhishek Bachchan and Kangna Ranaut in lead roles but now the news is that Rana Daggubati has been signed for the part which was originally to be played by Junior Bachchan.

Ramu even confirmed the same on Twitter and said, "Due to date problems to match combinations with other actors I am going ahead with Rana Daggubati instead of Abhishek Bachchan in Department."

While the filmmaker cites the common date issue as the reason, one wonders what's the real reason behind Abhishek's ouster from the film? Has it got to do with the poor performance of AB Jr's last few films or has there been a fall out between Abhishek and Ramu, especially after a tabloid recently carried a story of Ramu sending out negative SMSes of Abhishek's recent release Dum Maaro Dum. Your guess is as good as ours.
