"I don't know why the issue has become so big. I think I attract controversy and this news was blown out of proportion. I have never left any film for money and I can never do that," Amit told IANS.
Amit was offered "Hawa Hawaai" first, but now "Mere Dad Ki Maruti" fame actor Saqib Saleem will play the lead.
"I met Amole sir and we had a chat about the film, but we could not take any decision in time and the film has gone to someone who is equally deserving. I hope I get to work with Amole sir in future," added the "Kai Po Che!" actor.
