Unhappy at not getting an A-list heroine, Ayushmann Khurrana has opted out of the filmmaker's project
Ayushmann Khurrana may be just one-film old, but he already has his priorities in place. Since he did not approve of the leading lady opposite him in Kunal Kohli's next, the actor decided to walk out of the project.
Our source says, `A few top-notch actresses were being considered for this rom-com. Later, the names of Ileana D'Cruz and Diana Penty had also crossed the minds of the makers. However, their dates didn't match.`
A source close to the actor says, `Contrary to rumours, he left as he did not get the right pairing. He wanted an A-list actress opposite him but that did not happen.`
Ayushmann tells us, `It's not a concept -based film. So the casting and pairing is very important. But I have no qualms working with a newcomer.`
