It seems that there is some strong jinx working overtime as far as Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ambitious project ‘Milan Talkies’ is concerned. The project, which has been announced ages back, is yet to get its lead actors, leave alone going on the floors. The movie has witnessed change of hands several times over with names of actors like Shahid Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur and Imran Khan being announced and getting replaced.
And now, as per the latest news, actor Imran Khan who seemed to be a strong contender for the male lead has been replaced by Ayushmann Khurrana. According to director Tigmanshu Dhulia and producer Ekta Kapoor, Imran’s demand of a fat pay packet was the reason for his replacement. Also, for the fact that, with, Imran’s movies, falling flat on their face at the box-office, his popularity is on decline.
Apart from replacing their male lead actor, the makers have also gone in for rechristening their project. The movie is now titled as ‘Bhoole Se Naam Na Lo Pyaar Ka’ instead of earlier ‘Milan Talkies’. Whether these changes help in the movie getting back on track remains to be seen.
