Recently, it was reported that Rekha has opted out of 'Fitoor' and Tabu has stepped into her shoes.
As per an undisclosed source from the film, the reason why the veteran actress opted out of Abhishek Kapoor’s 'Fitoor' was a “complete collapse of communication”. Recently, it was revealed that after shoot of the film wrapped, Rekha opted out of the project and the veteran actress was replaced by Tabu, thereafter. Previously, it was said the actress was unhappy with some of the shots and requested the director to re-shoot them.
“It’s not because Rekha didn’t like the way she looked. That’s bullshit. No, the reason for her abrupt departure is something else”, told a source to a leading daily. “They just couldn’t see eye-to-eye on how Rekha’s character was to be interpreted. Gattu had one image in mind, Rekha had another. They were working at cross-purposes. Neither party was happy with the end results”,told another source from the production.
“Replacing Rekha was a hard creative decision. Luckily, Tabu had not taken up anything after Haider. And she was familiar with the Kashmiri milieu after doing the film. She fit right in”, added the source.
'Fitoor', starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Katrina Kaif, is a Bollywood adaptation of Charles Dicken's famous novel 'Great Expectations' and is slated to release on 12th February 2016.
