|Vidya Balan has been replaced by Kangana Ranaut in Sujoy Ghosh’s next, and the apparent reason is the former’s pregnancy.
Yes, once again the rumours surrounding Vidya Balan’s pregnancy have gained traction. It’s heard that director Sujoy Ghosh, who had directed Vidya in Kahaani, was planning another edge-of-the-thriller with the talented actress. Things were almost final, but now one hears that Vidya is preggers and thus had to drop out of the film.
Sujoy too has overcome his dilemma and found a replacement. Who else than the au naturale Kangana Ranaut to step into the stilettos of Vidya? What’s more, Sujoy has even decided to name his film Durga Rani Singh. Coincidentally, Kangana Ranaut’s name in her latest hit Queen was also Rani. Also, Kangana’s next is titled Revolver Rani. It seems Sujoy wants to ride on the lucky name Rani, made popular by Kangana’s stellar performances.

While Sujoy Ghosh has got his replacement, producer Mukesh Bhatt might find himself in a sticky situation due to Vidya’s impending motherhood. Bhatt’s film with the actress and Emraan Hashmi, titled Hamari Adhuri Kahani, is supposed to go on the floors soon. But now with reports of Vidya’s alleged pregnancy, the fate of the film is uncertain, claim sources.
Talking to a tabloid about the film, Mukesh Bhatt says, “I don’t think Vidya is pregnant. She would’ve told us if she was expecting. I have complete faith in her; she will not keep anyone in the dark. And even if she is pregnant, I am happy for her.”
Currently, Vidya Balan is promoting IIFA in the US (see photos here), and Mukesh Bhatt is waiting to meet her. Like Mukesh, there are many awaiting an official confirmation on the actress’ alleged pregnancy.
