Has Nora Fatehi lost Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon's 'Ganpath'?
Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon are set to reunite after Heropanti in their upcoming movie, Ganpath. Directed by Vikas Bahl, the film is said to be a big-budget action thriller that will be released in two parts. The makers were on the hunt for a second heroine, which reportedly stopped at Nora Fatehi. However, a recent report suggests that she's been shown the door.
Fatehi's 'overenthusiastic PR machinery spoiled the show'
One of the producers, Jackky Bhagnani, and Fatehi's team had discussed the movie offer, "but her overenthusiastic PR machinery spoiled the show," a source told Bollywood Hungama. "In fact, when the news leaked out, everyone in the production was very upset and they later found out...Nora's team had informed the media about it. This irked them and she was shown the door," they added.
Will Nupur Sanon be the replacement?
The action-packed movie is being produced by Bahl, Vashu and Jackky Bhagnani, and Deepshikha Deshmukh. Now, they are again in search of an actress to replace Fatehi, and speculations are rife that it might be the Raabta actress's sister, Nupur Sanon. "For the other part, Pooja Films will either cast Nupur Sanon or launch a new face in films," the source informed the publication.

On the other hand, the expert in this field, Shroff, will play a boxer.
