The actress Kangna Ranaut who was offered both ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ and ‘Department’ chose to do Vishal Bharadwaj's ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ and let go of Ram Gopal Verma’s ‘Department’.
Kangna had not signed on the contract but it was decided that she would star in the movie ‘Department’ opposite her very good friend Sanjay Dutt. But when the actress realized that the dates of both the movies were clashing she decided to let go off ‘Department’.
"Kangna has her diary full, and she was facing a clash of dates with the Ishqiya sequel and Department. Though she tried her best, she couldn't accommodate both the films and had to let go of one. Since she is a big fan of Vishal Bhardwaj and Abhishek Chaubey (the director), she chose Ishqiya. Plus, she has very strong, performance-oriented role in it. Kangna is very glad to bag the film, which a lot of other top actresses were also vying for”, said a source.
The source also insisted that there was no bad blood between her and Ram Gopal Verma.
"Thought she has opted out of Department, it's not on a bad note. She has great respect for Sanjay Dutt and Ram Gopal Varma and she hopes to work with them in the future. For Department, there were only verbal talks and nothing was on paper as such. But Ramu was gracious enough to let her go without any problems”, added the source.
Kangna hasn’t confirmed the news yet.
