Who is replacing Gautam Gulati in Udanchoo?
Bigg Boss 8 winner, Gautam Gulati was all set to make his Bollywood debut with ‘Udanchoo’, playing a scamster who romances Brazilian model, Bruna Abdullah and newcomer Saisha Sehgal. But Gautam unexpectedly pulled out of the project to play the lead in Ekta Kapoor’s next.
The actor himself made an official announcement stating, “Yes, I informed the producer on Thursday. The dates are clashing with a Balaji production which rolls in June. Ekta ma’am will always be my priority because she gave me my break on television.”
However, the makers of Udanchoo have already found Gulati’s replacement. Sunny Leone’s Ek Paheli Leela co-star Rajneesh Duggal has replaced the Bigg Boss fame in the film.
Rajneesh confirmed this news to a leading daily . He said, “I was approached for the film four months ago but I did not have any dates available since I was busy shooting for Beimaan Love with Sunny Leone. Later, I heard that Gautam had signed the film. But when things didn’t work out with him, I was back on track.”
The movie will see the former model, Rajneesh sporting over 10 different looks. The actor will begin filming with director Vipin Parashan in Mumbai today. “We’ll also be travelling to Delhi and Dehradun for the film,” he signs off.
But, after he walked out of his debut film ‘Udanchoo’, rumors suggest that he has dropped from Ekta Kapoor’s film as well. According to report, there’s a strong buzz that the young star has been dropped from ‘Azhar’ by Balaji Productions. However, the reasons are yet to be known.
Since there has been no official announcement on the matter yet, this can be counted as a speculation.
