Apparently, Bips got mighty worried after there were rumours that producer Bunty Walia was planning to replace her with Vidya Balan. Yes, the same dame who was once linked with her long time boyfriend Johh Abraham!
The movie is being directed by Rahul Dholakia and also stars Sanjay Dutt, Kunal Kapoor and Anupam Kher. The news was that the dusky dame was not happy with the security arrangement in Kashmir and had walked out in huff leaving the shoot early in November.
Producer Walia has apparently confirmed the news, "Yes we are going to Kashmir in January 2009. Bipasha got scared in Kashmir as the crowd gathered there became uncontrollable. They were overwhelmed to see stars like her and Sanjay Dutt shooting in their midst. That's the reason Bipasha left from Kashmir without even informing us. But now that we have got assurance from Kashmir DGP Kuldeep Khuda about the cast and crew's safety, Bipasha has relented. We will be shooting in Srinagar and other parts of Kashmir. Right now, we are shooting for the film in Film City, where we have created a beautiful set of Kashmir, which is worth crores or rupees."
The news is that the shooting has started in Mumbai and the unit has only shot with junior artistes so far.
Well, look like Bips is serious about work after all. Or should we say anything for money, huh honey?
