Director Punit Malhotra has replaced the Rockstar babe with Esha Gupta for an item number in his forthcoming release Gori Tere Pyaar Mein
After hearing this bit of news, we could not help but find ourselves rolling on the floor. Nargis Fakhri – the one film wonder – who was thrashed by critics for her (in) ability to emote in the Ranbir Kapoor starrer Rockstar, has refused to do an item number in Punit Malhotra’s forthcoming release Gori Tere Pyaar Mein. The Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor film will feature a special item song for which Nargis Fakhri was the original choice, but the American import claims she has no dates for this exclusive feature. Oh really? Now what is really keeping the babe so occupied that she can’t have the time to shake a leg for Punit’s film, we wonder. Apparently, Fakhri claims that her dates are clashing with another flick, Madras Café. And so, Esha Gupta (of Jannat 2 fame) has been roped in as Nargis’ replacement.
If the superstar super-busy babes like Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra can squeeze some time out of their hectic schedules to do an item song or two, Nargis’ excuse seems not just lame but outright hilarious. Wethinks Nargis must learn the art of multitasking really quick, otherwise she will find it difficult to get even item numbers, let alone films!
