On Wednesday, Varun Dhawan revealed that Shraddha Kapoor was upset that she wasn't originally offered Street Dancer 3D.
Earlier, Katrina Kaif was supposed to star in Remo D'Souza's film, but left the project before shooting began.
Before Katrina's exit, Varun said Shraddha had told him she wanted to be part of Street Dancer 3D.
"Shraddha and I had gone somewhere and she told me, 'I was very upset with Remo and you because you all didn't offer me this film."
"The script was something else then, which is why sir didn't think about it. She was genuinely emotional about this. But I think it's destiny," Varun told reporters at the film's trailer launch.
Shraddha, Varun and Remo earlier collaborated on 2015's ABCD 2.
Katrina, Remo disclosed, left the project because of scheduling issues with Bharat. "We keep thanking Shraddha and say she has saved us. But at one point, we did think 'Now what to do'."
"It wasn't that she (Katrina) backed out. She had date issues, she had to shoot for Bharat, which is why she couldn't shoot with us. We were a bit tense then," the director said.
While shooting for the film Shraddha fell ill many times, Varun explains why in the video below.
Street Dancer 3D releases on January 24.
