Nisha Yogeshwar, daughter of actor-turned-politician CP Yogeshwar was initially reportedly to make her acting debut in Darshan's upcoming Kannada film "Ambareesha." But the buzz in the Gandhinagar circles is that she has been dropped out of the project.
"Ambareesha" is touted to be an action thriller directed and produced by Mahesh Sukhadhare under the banner of Sri Sukhadhare Pictures. Mahesh had roped in debutant Nisha for the female lead opposite Darshan. The principal shooting of the film began on 7 October and Nisha was part of the filming for 10 days. However, the makers have have replaced Nisha with "BulBul" actress Rachita Ram for the role.
The film maker's move left many surprised in the industry. The reasons behind the replacement are not confirmed, but sources from the film unit reveal that Nisha was not able to do justice to her role. Darshan and director Mahesh were reportedly said to be upset with her poor acting skills.
But Nisha begs to differ. The budding actress said she suffered injuries while shooting for the film in Kodagu and that the doctors have advised her to take rest for some time. She also added that walking out of the film was her decision, which will be finalised after a discussion with Sukhadhare.
"Ambareesha" is one of the most-talked about projects in the Kannada film industry. The film will also feature rebel star Ambareesh, his wife Sumalatha, Umashree and Sampath Raj in pivotal roles. Cinematographer Ramesh Babu is handling the camera work, while V Harikrishna has composed the music. The film is expected to hit theatres next year.
