"It's not your fault," said Taapsee Pannu when Bhumi Pednekar apologize for replacing her in Pati Patni Aur Who. Bhumi and Taapsee have come on-board for Anurag Kashyap's next film Saand Ki Aankh.
Taapsee Pannu was supposed to be a part of Juno Chopra's Pati Patni Aur Woh remake, however, the actress was replaced by Bhumi Pednekar at the last minute.
In an interview, the Pink actress had called out the makers for being unprofessional. A lot of reports suggested that Kartik Aaryan, the lead hero, was the one behind her ouster from the film. However, neither Kartik nor Taapsee responded to those rumours. The interesting fact here is that Taapsee and Bhumi soon came onboard for Anurag Kashyap's film, Saand Ki Aankh.
Needless to say, the question about the awkwardness between them was bound to pop-up. And when Bollywood Hungama asked the same to Taapsee, the actress revealed that it was Bhumi who reached out to sort it out.
"I was like, 'Why are you apologising? It's not your fault. She was somewhere conscious that it shouldn't make it awkward between us during Saand Ki Aankh. I was very clear it's not going to affect anything between us. We have never discussed this ever again," Taapsee told the entertainment portal. Talking about the incident that happened, Taapsee added that she didn't wish to make the matter bitter by showing the messages wherein she was asked to block her dates for the film. Her only motto for calling out the makers was to make sure that no other actor goes through the same in the future.
Well, that is quite sensible on her part. And it is good to know that all is well between Bhumi and Taapsee.
Talking about their film, Saand Ki Aankh, it is inspired by the lives of Chandro and Prakashi Tomar.
