Yesterday, it was reported that Nargis Fakhri has been dropped out of Shaukeen remake. Now, Shraddha Kapoor has been roped in by the makers to play the role played by Rati Agnihotri in the original film.
“Talks are on with Shraddha but nothing is finalised,” sources told, without divulging any further information.
Meanwhile, Nargis said “I was very excited about Shaukeen and we had been preparing for a while now. There was another opportunity in the pipeline and we tried to work out the dates so that I could be a part of both but the dates were clashing. I couldn’t have asked the team to wait for me, so it’s heartbreaking but I had to let the film go.”
“I was really excited to work with the team of Shaukeen and Abhishek Sharma, who is a terrific director. A bond with the film and team members of Shaukeen remains and I wish them all the best,” said Nargis, who is making her Hollywood debut opposite Jason Statham; in the role of a secret agent.
