While all were sure that after the success of The Dirty Picture, Ekta Kapoor, the honcho of Balaji Telefilms, will cast her blue-eyed girl Vidya Balan in Shootout at Wadala, Vidya has apparently declined the offer herself!
Well, Vidya was offered this role while filming for The Dirty Picture; and at that time she neither accepted nor declined the film, saying that she needs to sort out things and does not want to take a hurried decision! And now that the film has released and has had a tremendous run at the box office, Vidya Balan reportedly is wary of the fact that Shootout at Wadala is a male-oriented film!
Not only this, rumours are rife that Vidya did not want to be cast opposite John Abraham since she does not want to be linked with John off screen, as happened after Salaam-E-Ishq!
That is why, Ekta Kapoor decided to look for some other actress and Kangana Ranaut was roped in to play the role! Notably, Kangana has worked with Balaji Telefilms in the past as well, in Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai.
Anyhow, do let us know what you think of Kangana Ranaut and John Abraham as an on-screen couple!
