Even before the start of actual shoot, film “Pati, Patni Aur Woh” has been making headlines. Taapsee Pannu, who was last seen in Manmarziyaan, recently alleged that the producers dropped her without any proper intimation. According to her, “I was at the narration in November. I liked the script and gave it the go-ahead. I was asked to clear my schedule and I complied. Only the clauses remained to be negotiated. But they suddenly vanished. When I tried to confront the producers, I wasn’t given a proper reason.”
Responding to Taapsee’s allegations, producers Bhushan Kumar and Juno Chopra have clarified that, “When a script is locked, every director or producer approaches several actors for the casting of the film. We reached out to many actors, who we thought could be our potential protagonists in the film. Taapsee Pannu was one of the many actresses we had approached for one of the leading ladies in the film. However, we as Producers have never made any commitment to her.”
The film has finally got a fresh star cast on board, which includes Ananya Pandey, Karthik Aryan and Bhumi Pednekar.
