With the release of ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’ now just days away, it has emerged that a fallout between Abhishek Bachchan and Aditya Chopra led to the actor walking away from the ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ franchise.

News18 reports that Chopra and Bachchan had a spat during the production of ‘Dhoom 3’, which is why the actor was not cast in ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’. He has since been replaced with Abhishek Bachchan

A source said, “The script for Dhoom 3 was being constantly changed in Aamir Khan’s favour. Abhishek’s protests to producer Aditya Chopra and director Vijay Krishna Acharya fell on deaf ears. The last straw was the climax. When Abhishek arrived at the location for the shooting he was told that the entire climax had been changed without his knowledge. This is when Abhishek put his foot down. He told Adi that he would not work in the Dhoom franchise again.”

“Since the nasty experience with Dhoom 3, there has been a cold war between Abhishek and Aditya Chopra. Bunty Aur Babli 2 was offered to Abhishek. But he refused the offer,” added by the source.
