It is still unknown why Sanjay Leela Bhansali chose to replace Kareena Kapoor with Priyanka Chopra in his upcoming film that has been tentatively named 'Ram Leela'.
Barely had Priyanka and Kareena patched up after their last fight, that now there is more than enough fodder for the Kapoor girl to be on the war path with 'Piggi Chops' as she is known to her friends, yet again.
To make matters worse, the man who ousted her from his next film, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, was honoured in glowing terms recently and proclaimed to be “the truest successor to Raj Kapoor’s legacy" by none other than Kareena herself.
According to Bollywood insiders, Kapoor's high-profile wedding to Saif Ali Khan on OCtober 16 could be the reason for the quick change in leading ladies. Kareena undoubtedly needs a break from work in order to get her wedding done and over with and Bhansali is not exactly known in the film circles as the most accomodating of directors.
He needed the dates from the 'heroine' in a bulk and Kareena was unable to oblige him, reports Hindustan Times.
The film is likely to go on the floors in July and the elading actor in the film iS Ranveer Singh of 'Band Baaja Baraat' fame. The director had earlier told the media that the film is on the lines of 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' and is an out and out entertainer with 11 songs.
