Popular director Mohit Suri, who is best known for his films like Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain is now coming up with his new film Malang. Starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani in the lead roles, this movie is gearing up to hit the screens on the 7th of February.
Earlier, it was widely reported that Kriti Sanon was the original choice for the female lead in this film but she walked out of the project due to the differences with the makers. Mohit Suri has finally responded to these statements. He said that Kriti was actually the first choice for the film and also had read the entire script. But, she opted out of the project due to the scheduling of dates.
Malang features ensemble cast like Anil Kapoor and Kunal Khemu as well. Thus, Suri had to allocate dates according to the schedules of all the actors. Unfortunately, Kriti was already busy in projects like Housefull 4 and Panipat. Thus, she couldn't allocate six months to Malang. Hence, she opted out of it and Disha replaced her. Mohit clarified everything and asked the media to stop spreading rumors. The director expressed confidence about the success of his film.
