Why was Hrithik Roshan dropped from Paani?

Sushant has replaced Hrithik in Shekhar Kapur’s Paani

As reported earlier, Sushant Singh Rajput has replaced Hrithik Roshan in Shekhar Kapur’s much delayed Paani. So why did the Greek God lose out on the opportunity to work with the Mr. India director, you ask?

According to the grapevine, it has to do something with Yash Raj Films, the producers of Paani. Reportedly, YRF was not willing to share their profit with Hrithik. Phir kya tha? This led to Hrithik’s exit from the project.

However an official spokesperson of YRF denies Paani being offered to Hrithik in the first place. But if we recollect, we remember the Krrish 3 actor announcing him being part of Shekhar Kapur’s film during the Marrakech International Film Festival in April this year.

Anyway, after all this, one thing is given. Sushant Singh Rajput must be on cloud nine after he bagged a role in such a huge film.
