Fatima Sana replaces Taapsee Pannu in Anurag Basu's next: reports
The film is said to be a sequel to Life In A Metro.
According to reports, Dangal actress Fatima Sana Shaikh has replaced Taapsee Pannu in Anurag Basu’s sequel to Life In A Metro. The replacement, reports say, is because the Pink actress doesn’t have dates for the film. A leading media organisation reported that a source close to the two and the production said, “Dates were a major conflict and that is the reason why Anurag Basu had to look out for different option for the lead. And lucky for him, he had already spoken to Fatima in the past. So, when dates did become an issue, it was an easy fix for him this time around.”
Created in the form of an anthology with over four stories by the Dev D filmmaker, Life In A Metro dealt with the complex web of relationships set against the backdrop of an urban lifestyle. The sequel is said to feature Rajkummar Rao and Parineeti Chopra.
