After Vidya Balan opted out of Sujoy Ghosh's Durga Rani Singh, citing health reasons, buzz was that she may quit Mohit Suri's Hamari Adhuri Kahani (HAK) as well.
And now, rumour has it that Mohit may replace Vidya — should she walk out of the project — with his Ek Villain heroine, Shraddha Kapoor. HAK also stars Emraan Hashmi and Rajkummar Rao.
A friend of the director says, "Mohit is busy with Ek Villain, so he hasn't been able to meet Vidya regarding their movie. Shraddha and he have had a big success in Aashiqui 2. He's impressed with her work and is eager to collaborate with her for the third time."
However, producer Mukesh Bhatt refutes the news. "It's all hearsay. Vidya is very much doing the film," he says. Mohit and Vidya didn't revert to our text messages.
