Pati Patni Aur Woh makers respond to Taapsee Pannu: Approached many actresses, never made any commitment
Taapsee Pannu recently expressed disappointment on being unceremoniously dropped from the remake of Pati Patni Aur Woh. The producers of the film, Bhushan Kumar and Juno Chopra, released a statement clarifying they had never made any commitment to the actress about finalising her for the role.
The actress had said that the sudden change had jeopardised her work schedule completely as she had specifically slotted dates for the film by taking away time from her other projects. The producers' statement explained how they had approached several actresses who they deemed fit for the role.
The statement mentioned that the process of casting was purely based on who fit the role perfectly. "For our upcoming project – Pati Patni Aur Woh, we reached out to many actors, who we thought could be our potential protagonists in the film. The versatile actress Taapsee Pannu was one of the many actresses we had approached for one of the leading ladies in the film," the statement read. Kumar and Chopra stated how they considered Taapsee a talented and versatile actress, and would love to work with her in the future. The final casting of the Pati Patni Aur Woh remake will be announced soon.
