Once amazing co-stars are now at loggerheads..
Actors Vishal Kotian and Kiku Sharda are best known for their amazing on-screen chemistry in the Big Magic long runner, Akbar Birbal.
However, it seems that their on-screen chemistry hasn’t transpired off-screen as according to a a report in Bombay Times, Vishal has accused Kiku of being responsible for his ouster from an upcoming show titled Partners.
Vishal said that Kiku has used his stardom to get him ousted from the show. He elaborated saying that Kiku and him were supposed to play the leads and the show was supposed to be an action comedy. However, Kiku apparently got a team of six writers to reduce the action quotient suggesting that the channel focus the show around him.
According to Vishal, Kiku even tried to get the title of the show changed to centre on him primarily and got a different director to shoot too.
All this led to Vishal’s unceremonious ousting from the show and the actor is really miffed about it.
Kiku on the other hand refuted the claims telling that the decision to remove him was collectively taken by the channel, producers, director and himself. His replacement happened due to several other reasons on which he chose not to elaborate and he wishes the best for Vishal.
On getting a new director to shoot, Kiku mentioned how he was comfortable working with the director of Akbar Birbal and hence got him onboard.
Replacing Vishal will be actor, Vipul Roy who is best known for his roles in shows like FIR and Saheb Biwi Aur Boss among others.
