Since Nargis Fakhri abandoned ‘Shaukeen’, Lisa Haydon’s name was the one that emerged as her potential replacement. However, BizAsia has learnt that Sunny Leone has also been offered the part.
The film will star Akshay Kumar in the male lead role and is a remake of the the 1982 original. As the cast came to terms with Fakhri’s exit in favour of a Hollywood venture. An insider revealed that Leone was also a favourite and now the decision seems to be between her and Haydon.
Haydon has recently been receiving good reviews for her performance in ‘Queen’ (2014) and Leone’s ‘Ragini MMS 2’ has also done well. One wonders who will end up bagging the role.
