Mumbai, Mar 25: Actress Shruti Haasan has been roped in to play the lead role in the movie Sangamitra. Touted to be a big budget periodic drama to be directed by Sundar C, the film has been planned on a massive budget of Rs 200 crores. But the news made waves when Shruti walked out of the project.
However, the makers locked Bollywood beauty Disha Patani finally which they made it official through an announcement.
Actor Disha Patani spoke about being a part of the highly ambitious Sangamithra and said that—contrary to perception—she did not ‘replace Shruti Haasan in it. She added that the Srimanthudu star is more established than her and has accomplished a lot.
"I did not replace her. I don't know what happened. I didn't even ask them, honestly. I am no one to replace Shruti Haasan. She is much bigger and much experienced than me. I am relatively a newcomer. I am only a few films old. I am not anyone to replace anyone. But I don't know what happened. You should ask the director of the film," she added.
