Amongst the legal differences between director Abhishek Kapoor and producers KriArj Entertainment over ‘Kedarnath’, it’s emerged that there was a desire from the former to replace lead actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
“Gattu (Abhishek) is no stranger to replacements. During Fitoor, he sacked someone as senior and legendary as Rekha, and got Tabu on board. Kedarnath started on the wrong foot when he got the cinematographer replaced in the very first schedule. Then it was Sushant’s turn,” said a source, according to Deccan Chronicle.
It seems Kapoor was keen to bring on Vicky Kaushal on board in the male lead role for the film, after Singh Rajput wasn’t able to accommodate more dates for the film in his schedule, “Sushant’s dates kept getting postponed over and over. Gattu expected him to be around at his beck and call. Sushant finally left for Chambal to shoot Abhishek Chaubey’s Sonechariya. This annoyed Gattu and he approached Vicky. ”
The film was to see the debut of Sara Ali Khan but it remains to be seen whether the film sees the light of day now.
