‘Hook Ya Crook’ hits casting glitchFebruary 11th, 2009 - 1:52 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Feb 11 (IANS) David Dhawan’s “Hook Ya Crook” seems to be going through a casting musical chair - first Irrfan Khan was replaced by Kay Kay Menon and then Uday Chopra opted out and was replaced by Shreyas Talpade.Now the latest casting glitch in “Hook Ya Crook” is Aditya Pancholi. Last week Aditya sat down with Dhawan to hear the script and decided he didn’t like his character and decided to opt out.
“It was a mutual decision. Aditya and I sat together. And when we saw what his role finally shaped into, I suggested that he opt out,” Dhawan told IANS.
A hunt is on for a last-minute replacement.
“But I’m not worried. I’m very happy with whatever we’ve shot so far. John Abraham has proved he’s a pro at cricket. We’ve shot two cricket scenes with him. And they have turned out brilliantly. ‘Hook Ya Crook’ has a huge ensemble cast. I’m not surprised at the changes in the cast. Good that they’re happening now than later,” said Dhawan.
Aditya seems to have become the master of opt-outs. In the last one year, he has opted out of Sanjay Gupta’s “Acid Factory”, Boney Kapoor’s “Wanted”, Murugadoss’ “Ghajini” (where Aditya was offered the title role) and now “Hook Ya Crook”.
While refusing to comment on what transpired with Dhawan, Aditya said: “If I’m not convinced about my role then there’s no fun in working on a project.”
