Reportedly, Chitrangda Singh had walked out of ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz‘ stating discomfort shooting intimate scene with co-star Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Last year, Chitrangda left the film mid way as she reportedly felt uncomfortable with how the director asked for retakes during a love-making scene.
When asked about the issues, Nandy told reporters, “There were multiple issues with her… She had my script with her for one and a half years. The script was in detail, it had everything specified and even then if someone has any problem, I can’t force anyone.”
The director said her leaving the project had nothing to do with the intimate scenes. “There was no issue about intimate scenes because she had already shot it. She had issues with the script and wanted certain things to be changed. It was her decision.”
He was speaking at the trailer launch of the film here. Actress Bidita Bag, who replaced Chitrangda, said there was no apprehension in taking over the role.“I was waiting for an opportunity like this, where I could give an impressive performance. I am thankful to her for leaving this role.”
This one of the most anticipated film featuring Nawazuddin as the sharpshooter Babu is aiming for a 25th August release.
