Vidya Balan ditched Sooraj Barjatya at the last minute. This may sound shocking but it is true! Rajshri Productions' Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi was supposed to star Vidya Balan in the lead opposite Bobby Deol. But now the November 7th releasing film has Eesha Koppikar along with Sonu Sood playing the main lead. So what went wrong?
Our sources revealed, "Sooraj Barjatya had approached Bobby Deol and Vidya Balan for his film Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi being directed by debutante Kaushik Ghatak. They both had given their consent for the film. Though Bobby initially found the family oriented subject appealing, he developed cold feet as the days progressed. He excused himself out of the film citing dates problem. Sooraj had hoped that he would find a suitable A-list actor to play the romantic opposite Vidya. But as that didn't look to materialise, Vidya chickened out of the project preferring to do Kismat Konnection along with Shahid Kapoor. Sooraj was then left with no option but to rope in small names like Eesha Koppikar and Sonu Sood to stop the film getting stalled even before it was about to be shot!"
It looks a remote possibility that Sooraj Barjatya will now ever approach either Vidya Balan or Bobby Deol to star in any of his Rajshri banner films!
