Casting woes continue as the makers search for the female lead
The search for the female lead for Shootout at Wadala continues. The latest name who was considered for the role Asin has turned down the offer.
The actress was recently in talks for the project but decided against doing it. Asin's business manager states, "Yes, she was approached to be part of the project. But had to turn it down as the required dates were clashing with another project."
Apparently the actress has given a chunk of her dates to Bol Bachchan for which she is currently shooting.
Asin's move has led producer-director Sanjay Gupta's prequel to his 2007 flick Shootout at Lokhandwala left yet again with casting woes.
A while back there was buzz that Vidya Balan was being considered for the role. But the actress who found the script interesting did not find it as interested to give it a nod.
As reported 'Vivek plays games' (Hitlist, January 14), Gupta who was initially keen to cast Vivek Oberoi was later forced to drop him apparently due to VO's unprofessional behaviour.
Shootout at Wadala, which revolves around the first encounter killing in the city in the early '80s was launched in August last year with John Abraham and Anil Kapoor.
