But both the actress couldn’t make it for the film amd hence the role went to the Panchnama actor with a the venture being re-written.
A source revealed, “Originally Dhamaka was to be a female centric film with the lead female role playing the central protagonist. Keeping the concept in mind the venture was offered to Taapsee Pannu, but the actress turned down the project.”
“Post Kriti walking out of Dhamaka, Azure Entertainment sold the project to Ram Madhvani, while director Rahul Dholakia got busy with other projects. In the meantime Madhvani, decided to go ahead with the film in association with RSVP, and went in for a re-write converting the film from a female centric protagonist to a male centric one”, added the source.
