Amisha Patel is rumored to have opted out of Red Chillies’ Billo Barber to be directed by Priyadarshan. The Shah Rukh Khan-Irrfan Khan starrer is a remake of the Malayalam film, Katha Parayumbol. Tabu was first offered to play the Barber’s (Irrfan) wife but she refused the role terming it as “insignificant”. Then the role was offered to Amisha, but the rumor is that she was not happy with the role to begin with. Miss Patel is in serious attempt to revive her career and she cannot continue playing functional characters, “Ameesha feels that she might get lost as the film which essentially concentrates on Shah Rukh and Irrfan Khan,” reveals a close source.
Priyadarshan is reportedly upset because he had a tough time convincing the actresses to play this role and they have opted out at the last minute. The shooting is supposed to start on the 7th of April; however it seems to have been postponed to the end of June as long as the hunt for the Barber’s wife continues. Juhi Chawla, who is a close friend of SRK, is rumored to have stepped in to help out her long-time-buddy in this comic flick. Apart from this project, Juhi’s got Krazzy 4 and Bhootnath in her kitty; releasing on April 11th and May 9th respectively.
Amisha is currently happy with her personal life and her new boyfriend, Kanav Puri, who has been motivating her on doing the right moves in her career. Ami is currently in talks with big banners and will get her hands on a few biggies this year… Watch this space for more!
