Word had it that our home-grown actor walked out of the movie due to the intimate scenes. However, according to Indian Express report,dapper star Fawad Khan did walk out of the Bollywood movie, Battle for Bittora, but due to entirely different reasons altogether!
Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Khan had been the darling couple for their fans since Khoobsurat and now the two were about to re-unite for Battle for Bittora but unfortunately, the Pakistani star had to quit the project due to the clashing schedules.
Whilst speaking to the Indian newspaper at the Vogue Beauty Awards 2015, Fawad revealed: “The worst hurdle was our timelines which couldn’t coincide with each other; Sonam had her own projects lined up, Rhea is engrossed working on “Saat Hindustani” another pet project. Amidst all this, I too got involved with other engagements. Everything else is but conjecture.”
Considering that it was Rhea Kapoor’s Khoobsurat which served as the breakthrough in Bollywood for Fawad, many are of the opinion that his decision might strain their acquaintances, to which Fawad clarified, “I never rejected the film. We still enjoy a good rapport, friendship and conversation with each other. I still foster all the love and reverence for Anil sahab and the entire Kapoor family. I would love to work with the Kapoors whenever the opportunity comes next.”
Based on Anuja Chauhan’s namesake book, Battle for Bittora, the Bhaag Milkha Bhaag co-star, Farhan Akhtar has now replaced Fawad as the protagonist.
