Ram Gopal Varma’s film Department has been beset with casting troubles right from its inception. Abhishek Bachchan who was to play a cop dropped out of the project for reasons unknown in spite of the presence of his father Amitabh Bachchan in the principal role in the film. RGV replaced Abhishek with Daggubati Rana.
The news now is that RGV has also dropped Kangna Ranaut who is playing the only female lead in the film. It is not known whether Kangana walked out or for what reasons. She has been replaced by Anjana Sukhani. She will play the love interest of the character played by Rana.
RGV is starting the regular shooting of Department in August. The film is said to be dealing with the internal politics and peer rivalry in the police department.
