EXCLUSIVE: Bhumi Pednekar to replace Kriti Sanon in ‘Womaniya’?

It’s over and out for Kriti Sanon. The ‘Raabta’ Heroine who has her slate full with films like ‘Arjun Patiala’, ‘Housefull 4′, ‘Luka Chhupi’ and ‘Panipat’, was almost on board for Tushar Hiranandani’s directorial debut, ‘Womaniya’. The film which is based on the life of Indian shooters Chandro and Prakashi Tomar, was supposed to go on floors earlier this year and had Taapsee Pannu locked in for one of the roles too.

But a lot of delays happened and Kriti decided to opt out of the biopic. She does not have any more dates left to allot to the film and the makers have already started looking for a proper replacement for the actress. We hear that the filmmaker have found a few options for the role.

So who is replacing Kriti? Insiders suggest that Tushar along with Vikas Bahl, who’s creatively involved with this passion project, has already spoken to Disha Patani for the role. But she might not be able to do it because her date diary is all taken up by Salman Khan starrer ‘Bharat‘ which goes on floors around the same time. But their other choice which is possibly working out for sure, is Bhumi Pednekar. This YRF heroine will soon be seen playing a dacoit in ‘Son Chiriya’ and as in she is known to be playing desi rustic characters.

Bhumi also seems perfect for the character as she is a great actress, has a rural touch to her and is also one of the popular faces from the younger generation. Bhumi has not signed the film yet but since it’s a toss-up between Disha and Bhumi, the ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ actress is more likely to take the lead.
