In a shocking development, Naagin actress Mouni Roy is no longer part of Bole Chudiyan which stars Nawzuddin Siddiqui in the lead role. Reportedly, the makers were unhappy with the actress’ acting skills and decided to let her go off the project. Responding to the reports, Mouni Roy’s spokesperson has said that the claims made by the producer Rajesh Bhatia about Mouni Roy’s professionalism are unvalidated. “Mouni Roy is no longer a part of the film. Mouni has done many films before and has had a successful career, where everyone has vouched for her professionalism. Mr. Rajesh Bhatia on the other hand, is making his second film. His first film has already run into many controversies, where he has even accused a senior actor of interference. He is now claiming that Mouni is not a professional, whereas there are several emails and text messages proving otherwise, which we will be happy to share. Even the contract isn’t signed because of the discrepancies in it,” the actress’ spokesperson said in a statement.
On the other hand, the producer claims that they persisted with Mouni despite finding her acting skills not matching to the required levels. The makers claim that they were assured by Mouni’s talent agency of fixing workshops for her to scale her up for the film, but nothing progressed. “The actor, director, me & Kiran as content head & as producers did our best to reason out with her about lack of her professionalism and dedication but she suddenly lost cool & was ill tempered and started throwing high handed attitude near all seniors which was shocking. We would rather replace now than suffer as ours is one schedule film. Let me ensure that Bole Chudiyan is going ahead as scheduled with a new heroine. Woodpecker Movies as a Production House stays fully invested in the project and will go ahead with the film with a new heroine,” producer Rajesh Bhatia said in a statement.
Bole Chudiyan marks the directorial debut of Shamas Nawab Siddiqui and is produced by Rajesh Bhatia and Kiran Bhatia under their banner Woodpecker Movies. The film, which is going on floors in June end will see another established actress opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui now. The makers are meeting A-list actresses and will soon announce the lead actress.
