Mouni Roy who was announced to be a part of Nawazuddin Siddiqui's upcoming film 'Bole Chudiyaan' was recently in news when the makers and the actor announced blaming each other for unprofessional behaviour.
The producer of the film, Rajesh Bhatia claimed that Mouni was being "irresponsible", while the actor's spokesperson alleged that the makers were unprofessional and not her. This led Mouni Roy to quit the film.
Now, the makers have found the new leading actress to be paired opposite Siddiqui and she is Tamannaah Bhatia.
Nawaz took to his Twitter handle and wrote: "The most beautiful addition @tamannaahspeaks to the family of #BoleChudiyan congratulations director @ShamasSiddiqui @woodpeckermv @zaverikiran9 #RajeshBhatia" [sic]
Tamannaah too wrote on her Twitter saying: "I am extremely happy to be a part of #BoleChudiyan family! Can’t wait to start this journey with @woodpeckermv @Nawazuddin_S @ShamasSiddiqui @zaverikiran9 & #RajeshBhatia" [sic]
Tamannaah in a statement said, “I am looking forward to being a part of this project. The script fits in beautifully with the narrative. This will be the very first time I will be attempting such a multi-layered character in a mainstream Bollywood film. What really caught my attention was the storyline of the film which is a relevant and prevalent issue that grips society at large even today.”
Shamas Nawab Siddiqui, Nawaziddin’s brother too said, “Tamannaah has that spark in her eyes and dedication which I was looking for in my heroine.” He wrote in a tweet. “And finally the hunt for my perfect heroine ends here. Welcome drop dead gorgeous and talented @tamannaahspeaks to #BoleChudiyan family!"
Coming back to Mouni Roy's dramatic exit, the spokesperson in a statement said: "Mouni Roy is no longer a part of the film. Mouni has done many films before and has had a successful career, where everyone has vouched for her professionalism. Mr. Rajesh Bhatia on the other hand, is making his second film. His first film (Motichoor Chaknachoor) has already run into many controversies, where he has even accused a senior actor of interference. He is now claiming that Mouni is not a professional, whereas there are several emails and text messages proving otherwise, which we will be happy to share. Even the contract isn't signed because of the discrepancies in it. We don't wish to say anything more to this . Anyone sensible can see what's going on. Mouni chooses to maintain a dignified stance and doesn't believe in mud slinging. She wishes them the very best." the statement read.
