We earlier told you that Lisa Haydon has replaced Diana Penty in the Atithi in London which was a sequel to Ajay Devgn and Konkona Sen Sharma starrer Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge. However now we learn that the actress has backed out from the project just ten days prior to the commencement of shoot. Just yesterday we had Lisa announcing her marriage plans with beau Dino Lalvani and her recent progress has made us wonder if the announcement had something to do with her opting out from the movie.
Abhishek Pathak is extremely upset with actress’ strange behavior. He was quoted saying, “We had locked Lisa for the role, exchanged contracts and even got her visa ready. The set was ready in Filmalaya studio but we got a call from her manager ten days before the schedule that Lisa wasn't interested in doing the film anymore. Suddenly, I hear from someone that she's getting married which is why she can't do our film. We had everything ready, from visas for the entire crew to locations. Now all that money is down the drain. My crew's work permit visa is valid only for a limited period so I don't know what to do now.” Also Read: Lisa Haydon announces her marriage with beau Dino Lalwani
The filmmaker further adds, “These people come from abroad and don't understand how people put in effort, sweat and blood to make a film. We shouldn't be entertaining people who don't understand the value of money that a producer puts into a film. The contract was handed over to her team long ago but they kept delaying signing it because she had other plans. Her agency had stated multiple times in mails that she was doing our film; she had sent us her passport details for the London schedule as well.” Also Read: Lisa Haydon replaces Diana Penty in Atithi In London
This isn’t the first time when actress has behaved weirdly. Even before this the actress had demanded that she won’t lip sync any songs in the movie. Isn’t it weird? Dear Lisa, you’re doing a Bollywood movie where songs are integral part of the movie. The makers were calm enough that they decided to go ahead with her strange demand but her recent stance had upset them badly.
So now that Lisa is no longer a part of this movie, Abhishek has decided to push the movie’s schedule by a week. They are hoping to start from October 20 with a new face instead of her.
