Revealed: Why did Chitrangada quit Krrish 2

Actor Chitrangada Singh has been saying that date issues and her character turning into a cameo in Krissh 2 were the main reasons for her decision to opt out of the superhero flick. Apparently, that’s not entirely true and there’s more than meets the eye.

According to reports, there was a fallout with producer Rakesh Roshan, who is known in the industry for avoiding unwanted expenditures.

According to a source close to Chitrangada: “An actress is used to working with a paraphernalia around her which includes the make-up person, hairdresser, attendants and her other staff who attend to her needs during the filming. Normally the production house bears the costs of these people. Obviously, Rakesh Roshan was in no mood to incur any additional expense apart from what the unit would supply.”

Adds the source, “As Chitrangada’s role was that of a mutant, the producer felt that the make-up guys that he had hired for the film would be sufficient for her. And that there was no need of incurring the cost of additional people with her.”

Coupled with the fears about the length of her presence in a film that starred Bollywood biggies like Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra and Vivek Oberoi, Chitrangada decided to walk out. The makers have now roped in Jacqueline Fernandez.

“Chitrangada felt there was no point shelling out from her own pocket. Considering the logistics of the project this is something she could not understand. Not that she is a big star who could afford to incur expenditure on the sets as well,” the source adds.
