Revealed: Why Ankita Lokhande was replaced in ‘Happy New Year’
Much before Deepika Padukone’s name came into the game, ‘Happy New Year’ was set to see the debut of TV actress and fiance of Sushant Singh Rajput, Ankita Lokhande. BizAsia has come to know why the state of play changed.
Filmmaker Farah Khan is believed to have changed her mind about Lokhande when she heard of her demands, short temper and overall rude behaviour. It was then that Khan decided to choose a leading lady that she had worked with before and Padukone went on to bag the role.
The role is that of a Maharastrian lady and Lokhande had fit the bill perfectly. Now, one wonders whether Lokhande’s Bollywood dreams will ever come true.
