Looks like the Haha-Hawai girl, sridevi is acting all pricey these days! The buzz in town is that Sri Devi apparently had turned down an offer by Abhishek Kapoor. The role was that of a greyish shade in Abhishek’s upcoming flick Fitoor which is based on Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations.
“Everyone is waiting to see what her next film is after English Vinglish. The film has Katrina Kaif as the leading lady. Sushant Singh Rajput, who was earlier a part of the film, recently walked out of the project. Abhishek wanted Sridevi for a role, which was played by Robert De Niro in the 1998 big screen version of the novel. Abhishek tweaked the script and made it female-oriented,” said a source.
Sri Devi, who is riding high on the success of her comeback film English Vinglish turned down the role because she thought the role doesn’t suit her and that she was not the ‘right choice’ for such a role,
Poor Abhishek! First Sushant Singh Rajput walked out of the film and now Sridevi refused to play a negative role in Fitoor! We really feel sorry for the man.
