Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s upcoming film Bole Chudiyan ran into controversies when Mouni Roy left the project and then filmmakers informed that they have found a replacement, an actress who doesn't need an acting workshop for her role.
Now Tamannaah Bhatia who became a familiar name in Bollywood after the release of Baahubali has been roped in to play female lead opposite Nawazuddin in 'BoleChudiyan'. The shoot for the film will commence shortly in Rajasthan.
Tamannaah, who is excited to be a part of the film, says she is looking forward to start working on the film. Her character is also something that got Tamannaah interested. Talking about the film and her character, she adds, “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 based on a prevalent issue that grips society at large even today. My character is authentic and quite contrary to what I am in reality. It’s something I will be experimenting for the very first time.”
Nawaz on the new cast on the film said, “I’m so happy and satisfied with this casting and looking forward to work with Tamannaah. I feel she is the correct and the perfect choice for this role.”
Director Shamas Siddiqui also added, “Tamannaah has that spark in her eyes and dedication which I was looking for in my heroine.”
Earlier, 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.
The 33-year-old actor, who made her big screen debut with Akshay Kumar’s “Gold”, was roped in to play the female lead opposite Nawaz in March this year, the first look of the film was also released after which the makers broke the news that she will no longer be aprt of the film. Some entertainment portals also reported that Rakulpreet Singh last seen in De de Pyaar De and currently vacationing at Switz Alps was also approached for the role but she chose otherwise.
Apart from Tamannaah, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap will be doing a cameo in the film.
