These days Vidya Balan may be making it big because of her role as Silk Smitha in her upcoming movie, but when it came to the sequel of a blockbuster of yesteryears ‘Ghayal’, the choice of makers shifted from Vidya Balan to the Bengali bombshell Bipasha Basu. Bipasha Basu was in news for her alleged relationship and break up with Shahid Kapoor recently.
Other story in this concern is buzzing that Vidya Balan is too busy with The Dirty Picture. Her role is the film is the boldest in the industry. The actress wants to concentrate completely on Ekta’s project as of now. Hence she has cited date issues and has opted out of ‘Ghayal 2’. She has reportedly left Sunny Deol starrer ‘Ghayal 2’ as she wishes to gauge the box office performance of her film ‘The Dirty Picture’ before she signs any other film.
As Vidya has now opted out of the film, the makers of the film have now shifted their interest from her to Bengali beauty Bipasha Basu. Reportedly ‘Ghayal Returns’ is to be directed by Ashwini Chowdhury. The film was expected to go on floors in November this year but due to this issue it has postponed to early next year.
A reliable source from the industry said, “Vidya was finalized for the role opposite Sunny Deol. However, the actress has now opted out of the film. She is currently busy with Ekta Kapoor’s The Dirty Picture. She wants to wait till The Dirty Picture releases to see how it is received, before she signs any other project.”
Adding further he said, “That’s the real reason she has opted out of Ghayal Returns. However, she claimed to have date issues and so, left the project. Anyways, Vidya Balan is currently shooting for Sujoy Ghosh’s film Kahani.”
As a replacement for Vidya the makers made their mind to cast Bips in the role of Vidya. Bipasha has met with the makers of the film as she is already doing another film with the same director.
