Filmmaker Sandeep Reddy Vanga has opened up about replacing Parineeti Chopra with Rashmika Mandanna in his blockbuster film ‘Animal’.
Vanga revealed that Chopra felt bad about being replaced but he claimed she was not the right person to play ‘Geetanjali’. He said, “Galti mera he hai (It is my fault). I told her ho sake toh maaf karo mujhe (if possible, please forgive me).” In the movie, Rashmika played Geetanjali, Ranbir’s wife.
He also added that Chopra was also his first choice for his previous film ‘Kabir Singh’. He added, “Some characters don’t feel set in some people. I don’t believe in auditions; I go with instincts only. From day one I like her acting, I always wanted to cast her as Preeti also in Kabir Singh but even that could not happen. It’s long due, I always want to work with her, I told her and she knew that.”

He said, “I said sorry, nothing is bigger than the film. So I am going ahead with someone else. She felt bad, but she understood why I am saying that.”
