Actor Neena Gupta is one of the finest Indian entertainment industry has to offer and ever since her role in Badhaai Ho last year, it has been a resurgence of sorts for her.
Since then, not only has Gupta bagged multiple projects but is also seen in multiple commercials.
And on that note, when it was confirmed that Gupta has bagged Rohit Shetty's upcoming mega film, Sooryavanshi, there was an instant excitement attached to it. However, it comes as a shock that her role from the film has been axed.
Yes! That's right. According to reports, Gupta bowed out of the film as her character wasn't turning out to be the way it was visioned and planned. After shooting with her for a few weeks, makers realised that her character did not quite fit wasn't able to find a place in the premise.
When Gupta learned about how her role isn't turning out to be the way it was planned she actually understood the dilemma and bowed out of the film. When Gupta was asked about her exit, the actor said that to fill in this gap, Shetty has to cast her as the lead heroine in his next film. We respect Gupta's understanding and sporting nature.
Sooryavanshi is directed by Rohit Shetty and stars Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in lead roles. Both Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh will be making special appearances in the film as a part of Shetty's cop universe.
