Bips has no issues with Ash
Bipasha Basu lost her role in Raavan as Mandodari (Raavan’s wife in the Ramayan) because the starcast is already top heavy.
Check this out: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (Sita), South superstar Vikram (Ram), Abhishek Bachchan (Raavan); National Award winner Priya Mani (Shoorpankha), Govinda (Hanuman) etc.
TOI was the first to report that Bips was actually ready with costume and almost getting into her car to drive to Malshej, when she got unceremoniously dumped because it took the creative team that long to decide whether she should drive to the location or not. However, there are websites and papers still writing about Bips being dropped because certain members of the cast were threatened by her dominating screen presence. Now that isn’t true. Honestly, wish people would just let some matters ride.
Ash and Bips shared great vibes during Dhoom-2 and they are quite civil with each other. Bips is doing Dum Maro Dum that has Abhishek in the lead and though Bips is cast with Rana Dagubatti, she and AB Junior get along famously. So who is arriving at all these theories one wonders?
