Imli is a upcoming Bollywood drama, helmed by Anurag Basu. The movie star Kangana Ranaut in the lead role. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, the actress has walked out of the film and now the makers are in the hunt for the main female protagonist. The report also say that Deepika Padukone has been approached for the same.
Rajkumar Rao is finalized as the male lead actor for the movie Imli. Imli is going to be Rao’s first film with Basu. The movie is based on love story which deals with relationships on a very human level.
Kangana saying, “It’s too early to talk about Imli as we are starting the film around the year end. All I can say is Anurag is my godfather and everything I am today is because of him… I can’t wait to go back to the beginning.”
Anurag says, “The buzz is not true.” During the conversation, he revealed that he approached Deepika at the time of the project’s inception. He elaborated, “At the beginning of the project I had approached Deepika. This was even before she got married. However, at the time she wanted to focus on her wedding and so she wasn’t keen on taking up any movies. This is when I moved to Kangana.”
Basu and Padukone have discussed the film, the source shared, “They had an informal meeting, where Basu told her about the role in ‘Imli’. She liked it, but she never said yes, and she won’t. She would have no problem in stepping in to any actress’ role. But not Kangana. There is too much baggage here to carry forward.”
There isn’t a confirmation about the female lead actor. The movie will be releasing soon in 2020. Stay tuned to know more. Will keep you updated with the upcoming information regarding it. Would appreciate for your corporation.
