Kriti Sanon who was the first choice for the role has no regrets about losing out on Prabhu Dheva’s Akshay Kumar starrer Singh Is Bliing
The role has now gone to Amy Jackson. Then again, Raj Nidimoru & Krishna DK’s Farzi which Kriti had signed while saying no to various plum assignments that never took off, because its leading man Shahid Kapoor deserted the project.
Sighs Kriti, “All this churning in my career was unfortunate. It wasn’t as if I looked for the confusion. I was thrilled to have signed Singh Is Bliing opposite Akshay Sir (Kumar). I even underwent rigorous preparations for the roll. I learnt kickboxing and Salsa especially for the film. But then the film got delayed and my dates clashed with the ones I had allotted to Rohit Sir (Shetty) For Diwale.”
Kriti Sanon begs inability to shuffle the two big projects. “Akshay sir, Prabhu Sir, Rohit Sir, Shah Rukh Sir are all extremely busy superstars. I couldn’t ask any of them to adjust my dates. There was no option but to opt out of Singh Is Bliing. But believe me, there is no bad blood about it. On the day Singh Is Bliing took off I called Prabhu Sir to wish him all the best. I am in touch with the film’s producer Ashvini Yardi . God willing, I’ll get a chance to work soon with Akshay Sir.”
Kriti Sanon is also committed to work with Sajid Nadiadwala. “I have a 3-film deal with Sajid Sir. But that isn’t the point. The Heropanti team is like home ground to me. I am part of their lives as they are part of mine.”
