Mallika SherawatMallika Sherawat replaces Tabu

Mallika Sherawat has replaced Tabu in writer-turned-director Sanjay Chhel 's latest venture 'Maan Gaye Mughal-e-Azam'.

Apparently the producers of the film were unwilling to pay the price Tabu asked for. Obviously the role has undergone critical modifications to suit altered conditions.




Chhel disagrees: "I'm a writer. So I know exactly how to place an actor into a character. Yes, Tabu was to do the role. But the way I look at it now, the role is perfect for Mallika. If Naseeruddin Shah had done Black wouldn't it have been different from the way Amitabh Bachchan played the character?"

In the past too, the industry has had some incredible casting makeovers, like Tabu stepping into Rani Mukherjee 's space in Mira Nair 's The Namesake and Lisa Ray getting into Deepa Mehta 's Water , originally earmarked for Nandita Das .

Chhel asserts that his film isn't a spoof on the classic "Mughal-e-Azam".

"No one in his right mind would satirise that all-time classic. My film is about a theatrical repertoire. Everyone -- Rahul Bose , Kay Kay Menon , Mallika -- has a comic role."

Rahul and Mallika hit it off like a house on fire during Pyar Ke Side Effects . While Pritish Nandy Productions is still planning a sequel, Chhel has gone and got the unlikely pair together again.

It would be interesting to see Mallika do yet another role, after 'Pyar Ke Side Effects', where she is not cast in her sex-bomb image.
