In a recent interview to a website, Madhuri Dixit's manager confirmed that Madhuri has replaced Vidya Balan in Dedh Isqiya.
He also said that it was Vishal Bhardwaj's idea to cast her in the sequel as he believed only Madhuri could do justice to this role. He also added that the talks have been going on for a long time, but Madhuri said yes on saturday and she is very excited to do this film.
Reports suggest that Vidya left this movie because The Dirty Picture actor was not ready to play the similar kind of role again.
In the movie Dedh Ishqiya, Madhuri will play Shahi Begum, a grey character and she has been paired opposite Nasseerudin Shah.
Kangana Ranaut, who has been added to the cast, will romance Arshad Warsi in the movie.
Dedh Ishqiya is about the adventures of Arshad and Naseer and the movie continues from where Ishqiya ended.
Abhishek Choubey is the director of Dedh Ishqiya and the shooting of the movie will start in May.
