Katrina Kaif was the first preference for Remo D'Souza's film 'Street Dancer 3D'. But later, the makers announced that Shraddha Kapoor will now step in Kaif's shoes, as the actress reportedly left the film citing date issues. Breaking her silence finally, Shraddha Kapoor in an interview spoke about replacing Katrina opposite Varun Dhawan, and said that these things happen. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Shraddha said: "No, not at all. Ultimately I feel like there are so many reasons. Like I couldn’t do Saina (Saina Nehwal’s biopic) for whatever reasons and these things happen. Eventually, I think it is what you’re happy with."
Talking about the film, Shraddha said that she is super thrilled about doing Street Dancer 3 as she loves dancing and is one of her most favourite things to do. She said: "So I was super excited to get back on Street Dancer and be with my old gang -- my ABCD 2 gang. Characterisation is super different and very very exciting. So, I was only happy about it. And for whatever reason am in the film, I’ve had a great time. Am very happy,” as quoted in the interview.
Back in April, Varun Dhawan too reacted on the reports suggesting that Katrina Kaif left the film abruptly. He said: "She called me and discussed why she would have to exit the film. That shows her maturity and respectfulness, and it means a lot to me. I am sure we will work together in the future. It would have been a wonderful opportunity, but things didn't work out due to the unavailability of dates. She was keen to do the film and even requested us to postpone it slightly. But logistically, that wouldn't have been possible since a lot of arrangements was already done," said Varun in an interview with a daily.
Street Dancer 3D is directed by Remo D’Souza. It stars Shraddha Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Nora Fatehi in the lead roles. Other than them, the film will also include Dharmesh, Raghav Juyal and Aparshakti Khurrana in pivotal roles. The film is a dance drama revolving around the lives of street dancers and is all set to hit the silver screens on January 24, 2019.
