Tanushree Dutta endorses Amisha's statement. "I was supposed to be doing the role opposite Tusshar Kapoor that Celina is now doing. I had to opt out because the film got delayed and I had other commitments which I couldn't wriggle out. Although she isn't paired with Govinda, the character I was supposed to play has a lot of scenes with Govinda. Celina was a natural choice because she's doing other films with Govinda and their dates were easier to synchronize than mine and Govinda's. I'd have loved to work with Govinda. Sadly they faced a lot of hiccups in their schedules earlier. Once I opted out, the film was completed smoothly. My bad luck."
Tanushree also regrets missing out on working with the producers Ashtavinayak. "I had done a guest appearance for them earlier in Bhool Bhulaiyaa. Fortunately, there was no bad blood because of this Run Bhola Run incident. But like I said I was replaced by Celina. Amisha was always in the project."
There seems to be some kind of a confusion regarding who replaced whom in Neeraj Vora's Run Bhola Run. Tanushree Dutta was apparently replaced by Celina Jaitley. But Celina says she didn't replace Tanushree. "Tanushree was supposed to do the role that Amisha has finally done. She was cast opposite Govinda." But Amisha firmly refutes Celina's claim. "I haven't replaced anyone. I've been working on the film from Day 1. Celina has replaced Tanushree."
