Ekta Kapoor replaces Imran Khan with Ayushmann Khurrana

Bollywood’s chocolate boy Imran Khan has been replaced by Ayushmann Khurrana in Ekta Kapoor’s new venture ‘Bhoole Se Naam Na Lo Pyaar Ka’. The reason for Ekta’s decision to throw Imran out is his high-handed demands. The czarina of television soon signed up the vicky donor actor in place of the Katti Batti actor.

Imran Khan who will soon be seen opposite Kangana Ranaut in upcoming new age romantic drama ‘Katti Batti’ had demanded 3 crores for the Tiogmanshu Dhulia directorial, He also wanted the ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ actress Bhumi Pednekar to be replaced with Priyanka Chopra.

Sources said, “Imran wanted Rs 3 crore and it was working out to be a very expensive affair. No distribution team was willing to back such an expensive film, which would have to be sold at a very high price. Moreover, distributors told Balaji there would be no recovery for such a film at the given budget, forcing the Balaji team into doing a rethink on casting”.

Imran, on the other hand, was shocked to know about the developments, he said, “I will find that out today. I have asked my team to figure out what happened. Today when I woke up I saw the story. I spoke to Ekta couple of months back. My last meeting was with the director. I tend not to be surprised by a lot of things happening after having seen so many ups and downs in last seven to eight years that I have been in the industry. I have lost my ability to be surprised.”
