Veteran actress Neena Gupta was dropped from Rohit Shetty’s ‘Sooryavanshi’ despite shooting for it for three days. Apparently, the director felt that her track didn’t work for the film’s storyline and hence she was removed.  The actress recently revealed that not Rohit Shetty but a production assistant informed her about the ouster.

The actress in a recent interaction with India.com revealed that Rohit never met her nor they had any word. “Rohit Shetty never came. I never talked to him. I was told that the track has not been working for the film so they are removing the track. (I was informed about this) by the production assistant,” Neena shared.

The ‘Badhaai Ho’ actress went on to say that she has nothing against Rohit and it was a good thing that she was informed about her ouster earlier as sometimes such things are informed after the release of a film. “It happens in a movie that sometimes, a certain character doesn’t work. They could have removed me after the shoot but it’s good that I was let go early on. I don’t have any problem with that,” she added.

The veteran actress even said she would ask for a role the next time Rohit makes another film.

Coming back to ‘Sooryavanshi’, it stars Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif in the lead role. The film was scheduled to release on March 24, but its release has been put on hold owing to the Coronavirus outbreak.
