Ajay Devgan‘s Upcoming movie ‘Baadshaho’ seems to still be going through casting issues. Initially there were reports that Kareena Kapoor Khan will star opposite Devgn, but the makers maintained that she isn’t part of the project. Now, news is that Esha Gupta is being finalized. According to reports, Actresses like Nargis Fakhri, Shruti Haasan and Lisa Haydon were also reportedly considered for the female lead of the upcoming Movie Baadshaho.
An industry source tells us that too much back and forth has been happening on the casting of the women for the film. “As it is, Pulkit Samrat was first signed on to play the second lead, before he was replaced by Vidyut Jammwal,” a source points out. Sources said, “The actress is hot on the international circuit today. Also, Ajay has been keen to work with PC for some time. He suggested her name to Milan Luthria.In fact, Ajay was to do ‘Bajirao Mastani’ wherein she played Kashibai, but that didn’t work out.”
Milan Luthria as saying earlier, “Baadshaho” is based on true events during the Emergency, and the director is extremely excited about the project. “I am thrilled to collaborate with Bhushan Kumar and Ajay, but I don’t want to reveal too much about the film at the moment, except to say that like my other films, this will also be a blend of action, humor, emotion and one liners. Rajat Arora has written the script and Bhushan and I plan to produce the film on a grand scale”
