Actor Aditi Rao Hydari recently released an official statement saying that she has decided to walk out of her Tamil project Tughlaq Durbar. Raashi Khanna will take up the role.
The actor took to social media to release an official statement saying that she didn’t want the team to wait for her during this unprecedented time and thus she had to let go of the project.
“Due to the ongoing Corona Virus Pandemic, the world including the Indian Film Industry, came to a standstill for 6-8 months this year.
While work has slowly started in phases and the film industry is getting back on its feet, there have been delays and schedules are being reassessed. As an actor, I feel a responsibility to not keep anyone waiting.
“I am committed to finishing projects that I had already begun shooting for and I don’t want to cause any delays in projects that I haven’t started yet, however much I want to make it work.
“Keeping the current scenario in mind, I in consultation with the producer, Mr. Lalit Kumar of Seven Screen Studio and director Delhi Prasad Deenadayal have decided to take a step back from a project we were all looking forward to.
“I would like to wish the director, Delhi Prasad, Mr Vijay Sethupathi, and the entire team of Thuglaq Durbar the very best.
Raashi Khanna over to you! All the very best and I hope you enjoy making this film!
And to all you super sweet fans, thank you for your messages. I promise, I will see you all at the theatre very soon. Until then, stay safe, take care and lots of love”, she said in a statement.
Talking about the same, director Deenadayalan said, We tried our best to work out the date issues with Aditi, but it didn’t work out. Our next immediate choice was Raashi Khanna. She plays a Marwari girl and fits in the role perfectly. When we narrated the script, she really liked the various shades her character offers. Her character is a girl-next-door-one, but her mannerisms will be a tad different. She worked around her dates and joined the shoot recently.”
