Mouni Roy Quits Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer ‘Bole Chudiyan’
Mumbai: Television actress Mouni Roy, who made her Bollywood debut opposite Akshay Kumar in ‘Gold’, has opted out of Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer ‘Bole Chudiyan’.
The film, directed by Rajesh and Kiran Bhatia and was all set to go on floors before rumours of heated arguments between the leading lady and the director surfaced. Following up, director Rajesh Bhatia announced that Mouni Roy has opted out of the film.
The director slammed Mouni for being unprofessional and for leaving the project so abruptly.
“The actor, director, me & Kiran as content head & as producers did our best to reason out with her about lack of her professionalism and dedication but she suddenly lost cool & was ill-tempered and started throwing high handed attitude near all seniors which was shocking. We would rather replace now than suffer as ours is one schedule film. Let me ensure that Bole Chudiyan is going ahead as scheduled with a new heroine. Woodpecker Movies as a Production House stays fully invested in the project and will go ahead with the film with a new heroine,” Rajesh Bhatia said.
However, Mouni’s team has refuted all claims of unprofessionalism. Her spokesperson 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 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.”
