That Rekha suddenly quit Fitoor only to be replaced by Tabu is well known. However, if reports are to be believed, the speediness with which Tabu signed up for hassled director Abhishek Kapoor is surprising.
An insider reveals to Mid-day, “A crisis situation emerged after Rekha decided to walk out of the film. The schedule was at risk of going haywire. In fact, the team had even decided to put off the shoot for a month should Tabu refuse to replace her.” But that’s not what happened.
After hearing out the proposed character sketch, Tabu apparently immediately agreed to be a part of the film and by immediately we mean within 5 hours . Another source quoted in Mid-day adds, "Tabu heard out what the character was all about and said yes to the project. As she had wrapped up Drishyam, there was no issue with her dates. However, we were apprehensive that she might take time to work on her look and costumes. But in five hours flat, she finished her look test, finalised her outfits and was ready to shoot."
What record timing!
