• Furious Ekta replaces Imran in her next

    21st August 2013
    The verdict is out and Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara has faired poorly at the box-office and Producer Ekta Kapoor is not happy about this at all. While Akshay Kumar's acting has been appreciated, it's his co-star Imran Khan who is being blamed for slowing down the momentum of the movie.
     
    Critics have been very harsh about Imran's weak act especially in the emotional scenes and Ekta is upset with Milan Luthria for casting Imran as Aslam.
     
    Ekta who was planning to produce her next project titled 'Milan Talkies' to be directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia had casted Imran Khan for the movie. But after the debacle of OUTIMAD she has decided to replace the actor and it's reported that she has approached Shahid Kapoor now. Priyanka Chopra is the leading lady of the movie and Shahid seems to be comfortable working with his ex-flame.
     
    Imran Khan who was busy telling the media that his next is Milan Talkies which deals with the piracy issue, but now with being shown the door, the actor is quite shocked.
     
    Our take is that Imran cannot be solely blamed for OUTIMAD's failure as the direction of the movie was slow and the romantic angle in a don movie didn't quite work. So we hope the drama queen makes peace and will cast Imran in some of her projects 'Dobaara'.
