Not many are aware that Vidya Balan was the first choice for Ajay Devgan"s home production, All The Best. She was first approached by Ajay and Rohit Shetty, the director of All The Best, but eventually this very same role went to Bipasha Basu.
A source claims, “Ajay and Rohit wanted bulk dates from Vidya for their 45 days long shooting schedule in Goa which was to include the entire cast of the film. But since Vidya had already committed her dates to Balki"s Paa and few other important projects she expressed her inability to allocate so many days at a stretch that too for an outdoor shoot."
Well then Vidya"s loss turned out to be Bipasha"s double gain as during the Goa shoot, Bips ended up getting friendly with Ajay Devgan. And now post, All The Best, she has now landed yet another film with Ajay. She has been signed up by Kumar Mangat and Ajay for their new film opposite Akshaye Khanna. It will be directed by Priyadarshan and is based on honour killings.
