Poor Nargis has lost out on a role in Akshay Kumar’s next ‘Khiladi 786′. The reason being tat she’s apparently too hot to play Mithun Chakraborty’s sister.
Mithun is playing the role of a gangster in the film and the team thinks that Nargis would never be able to look the part.
Initially, Mithun’s role was to be done by Amitabh Bachchan, who backed out citing health and date problems (*yawns*).
There are no ill feelings between the two parties and that their parting is amicable.
The filmmakers are still hunting for a female lead. The film goes on the floors in June and it’s being produced by Himesh Reshammiya. It’s being directed by debutante Ashish R. Mohan.
P.S. Isn’t it weird that they initially they thought that Nargis would fit in the role of Amitabh’s sister? She’s of her daughter’s age, no?
