Kriti Sanon, who wowed the audience with her performance in ‘Heropanti’, was quite gung-ho about her next project, Prabhudheva’s ‘Singh Is Bling’. However, with the film’s lead actor Akshay Kumar opting to begin Bhushan Kumar’s ‘Airlift’ first, has forced Kriti to opt out of ‘Singh Is Bling’ owing to date issues.
According to the reports, Kriti had duly allotted her dates for ‘Singh Is Bling’ to Prabhudheva and Akshay from February. But then the film was pushed to March-end or the first week of April to accommodate the real-life thriller ‘Airlift’ which Akshay decided to do first. This is when Kriti’s dates problem cropped up as she had already allotted her March-April dates to Rohit Shetty’s project, which stars Shah Rukh Khan. Though Kriti is cast opposite Varun Dhawan in the film, there is no way she could wriggle out of the project to accommodate SIB. And hence she decided to opt out of the project.
Kriti has been replaced by Amy Jackson, who was last seen in Shankar’s 'I'. Amy had a disastrous debut in Bollywood in ‘Ekk Deewana Ttha’ with Prateik Babbar. So one hopes she has better luck with Akshay Kumar.
