Mallika replaces over-priced Vidya Balan in ‘Dhamaal 2’
Mumbai: Although bombshell Mallika Sherawat seems to have become too busy for Bollywood ever since she’s started working on her biggies from the West, here’s some good news for the actress’ Indian fans. According to the latest buzz, Mallika has replaced the gorgeous Vidya Balan in the much-awaited sequel of comedy flick ‘Dhamaal’.
Mallika, who’s apparently looking forward to the release of her Hollywood ventures ‘Hisss’ and ‘Love Barrack’, in India, has been roped in by filmmaker Indra Kumar for his upcoming multi-starrer ‘Dhamaal 2’.
A few days back it was reported that Vidya was the first choice for the role, but the actress asked for a hefty amount which director Indra Kumar could not afford. Later, Mallika was approached for the same, and the sultry beauty agreed to do the film at a much-affordable price.
Grapevine has it that Arshad Warsi, who was a part of the first outing, has been replaced by Aftab Shivdasani in the sequel.
The rest of the cast which includes Sanjay Dutt, Jaaved Jaaferi, Ashish Chowdhary and Ritesh Deshmukh remains the same.
