Actors signing a movie and getting replaced later is not a shocking trend and is being practiced from a long time back. What has coming shocking today is the news of the sad demise one such fine actor. Saira Khan who replaced Sherlyn Chopra in Rupesh Paul’s controversial film Kamasutra 3D is sadly no more.
The actress passed away due to cardiac attack on friday morning. Saira made her debut with the film but many believe due to the controversy surrounding Sherlyn Chopra didn’t get the recognition she deserved.
“It was difficult for Saira to sign the film because she came from a very conservative Muslim family and to make a debut with such a bold film after all the fuss in the media about it was in itself challenging. It took us months to finally get her on board but the wait was worth it as nobody else could’ve done justice to the movie unlike her.” quoted the director of Kamasutra 3D Rupesh Paul.
“I found out about the news and was shocked. Later to see nobody and nowhere it was even reported was even more shocking. She deserved to be recognised for her performance and to remain unknown even after the brilliance she had is even more hurtful. It’s a mourning time for us and I hope she Rests in Peace.” said Rupesh Paul.
Saira Khan had been a part of a few regional movies before Kamastra 3D and was in the running to get her big break with 86th Academy Award nominated movie. It would sure embark eternal pain to witness a loss of such fine artist and a noble soul.
