Popular South Indian actress Shruti Haasan, who is now basking in the success of "Welcome Back", has reportedly walked out of Ajay Devgn's forthcoming movie "Baadshaho".
Shruti Haasan was all thrilled to work with director Milan Luthria and Bollywood superstar Ajay Devgn. She had given her oral consent for the project after the director narrated the story. She had assured to sign the film after seeing the final script, but was apparently not impressed with her characterisation in the final script.
"Shruti and Milan had quite a few meetings. Shruti seemed happy about the film's story and how her role was described in those meetings. Hence she agreed verbally but also requested to see a final script before signing the dotted line, as it is standard norm today," a source close to Shruti told IANS.
"However, once the latest narration of the revised script draft was shared with her, her character didn't seem like how it was narrated to her initially as it didn't quite add as much to the story anymore. She didn't feel like this character cut it for her even though she was really looking forward to working with Milan Luthria," the source added.
The daughter of superstar Kamal Haasan is one of the most sought actresses down south and has got some big-ticket projects in Tamil and Telugu. She has been juggling between Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai. The date issue was another reason for rejecting the movie "Baadshaho".
Shruti is currently busy with her Tamil films "Puli", "Singam 3" and a yet-to-be titled project with Ajith Kumar. She has planned to allot some dates for "Baadshaho". But the makers of the Bollywood movie pushed forward its shooting schedule, which clashed with Shruti's other projects.
"Hence bearing all these factors in mind, she had to politely decline being part of 'Baadshaho' with the hope that she gets another opportunity to work with Milan and Ajay," the source added.
