Shraddha Kapoor spoke about replacing Katrina Kaif in Street Dancer 3 and how she too, was replaced by Parineeti Chopra in the Saina Nehwal biopic
Bollywood star Shraddha Kapoor is now one of the most popular celebrities in the industry. Having spent almost a decade in Bollywood already, the actress has been a part of various hit films – her first one being Aashiqui 2 opposite Aditya Roy Kapoor. This year, Shraddha is flying high on the success of her latest back-to-back hits. Her releases this time, Saaho and Chhichhore have been performing really well at the box office and the fans are loving her characters in the later. She is also currently gearing up for the release of her next film, Street Dancer 3 opposite Varun Dhawan.
It was earlier reported that Katrina Kaif would be the female lead opposite Varun, however, Shraddha had later replaced her. In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, the actress opened up on the replacement and shared that “these things happen”. She said, “No, not at all. Ultimately I feel like there are so many reasons. Like I couldn’t do Saina Nehwal’s biopic for whatever reasons and these things happen. Eventually, I think it is what you’re happy with.” Shraddha was then replaced by Parineeti Chopra in the biopic for which the actress is currently receiving training.
On the other hand, Shraddha also spoke about her excitement on being in Street Dancer 3. Earlier, she was also a part of ABCD2 with Varun. Talking about returning to the set with the same cast, she continued, “I was super thrilled that I came on board for Street Dancer 3. I love to dance. It’s one of my most favourite things in the world. So I was super excited to get back on Street Dancer and be with my old gang - my ABCD2 gang. Characterisation is super different and very exciting. So, I was only happy about it. And for whatever reason I am in the film, I’ve had a great time. I’m very happy.”
