July 4, 2016: Earlier this month, actor Chitrangada Singh walked out of director Kushan Nandy’s film, which stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
The actor had said that she was asked to reshoot an intimate scene with Nawazuddin several times, despite being uncomfortable with it.
Now, Surveen Chawla hash been approached by the makers of the film to play the female lead. A source close to the actor says, “Surveen is reading the script. She is also having discussions with the makers. She will take a call soon.”
Surveen, who is currently working on her TV show that also stars Anil Kapoor, made her film debut with Hate Story 2 in 2014. With that role, she acquired the image of being a ‘bold’ actor.
In an earlier interview, she had said, “After Hate Story 2, I was bombarded with ‘bold and sexy’ roles. It got tiring. That’s why, I didn’t sign any Hindi movie post that. I don’t want to do films for the heck of doing them. I’d rather wait.”
The actor starred in TV serials such as Kahin To Hoga, Kasautii Zindagi Kay and Kaajjal, before moving on to act in Punjabi films.
