CHITRANGDA SIMGH and MUGDHA GODSE
Just when the search for a heroine for PETER GAYA KAAM SE, directed by John Owens, seemed to have come to an end, the heroine has been replaced. The buzz is that Chitrangada Singh has replaced Mugdha Godse in the film.
A source close to the production house said, ''It took months to zero in on a heroine for Rajeev Khandelwal starrer PETER GAYA KAAM SE. Considering that this film was Rajeev's second film after the successful AAMIR, the production guys were very selective about the female lead. Apparently, it was the success and positive reviews of Mugdha's debut film, FASHION, that fetched Mugdha the role. However, now the female lead has been changed.''
There have been reports that the shooting for PETER GAYA KAAM SE was meant to begin in August last year. However, the production team's inability to find a heroine delayed the film's schedule first to November 2008 and then to January 2009. But what caused the change of heroine?
Mugdha said, ''There were a lot of changes in the script. And I couldn't hold on to my dates for that long.''
Does she regret missing out on the role, considering the critical acclaim that Rajeev's earlier film AAMIR garnered? She replied, ''I have no regrets that I am not doing the film. Good for Chitrangada if she is doing PETER GAYA KAAM SE.''
On the other hand Chitrangada, who has stepped into Mugdha's shoes for the film, maintained, ''I am in talks for PETER GAYA KAAM SE. I am not aware that Mugdha Godse was supposed to do my role earlier.''
