Why Ileana lost to Nargis Fakhri
The makers of the Akshay-Himesh joint production are apprehensive about how she turns out
Okay, so we know that Nargis Fakhri has been confirmed to play Akshay Kumar’s heroine in his next film, which he’s co-producing with Himesh Reshammiya
Interestingly, the model who made her debut opposite Ranbir Kapoor wasn’t the first choice for the Ashish R Mohan directed film.
Reportedly, southside actress Ileana Da’Cruz had initially being confirmed for the part. Seems there’s more buzz about Ranbir and Priyanka Chopra, her co-stars in her upcoming maiden Hindi release.
So turning apprehensive about how she turns out in her Bollywood debut, the makers of the Akshay-Himesh joint production decided to rope in Nargis instead, considering that her film has released… never mind if her performance has been panned.
Chalo, good for them.
