Tanushree's loss is Rakhi's gain

Gullu Gupshup | March 27, 2008 13:24 IST

Tanushree Dutta and Rakhi Sawant

There was high drama on the sets of Horn Ok Please last night.

Apparently, the shooting was stalled when Tanushree Dutta [Images], who was to do an item number, allegedly refused to perform with the film's lead, Nana Patekar [Images]. This enraged the producer, Sami Siddiqui, so much that he cancelled the shooting, and he ousted Tanushree from the film.

The actress will now be replaced by the original item queen, Rakhi Sawant [Images]. The song will be shot this afternoon.

The incident blew out of proportion when Tanushree refused to come out of her vanity van, thus delaying the shoot for over two hours. Irked by Tanushree's unprofessionalism, the producer cancelled the shoot.

While the reason for Tanushree's behaviour is unknown, a Mumbai tabloid has hinted that the actress' skimpy outfit was the cause of the spat. Apparently, a unit member made a lewd remark, which upset the actress. What added salt to injury was Nana Patekar's remark, which implied that the actress should have known better than to appear for the shoot, uncovered.

Horn Ok Please is directed by Rakesh Sarang, and also stars Muzzamil Ibrahim and Rimi Sen [Images].
