Charles Dickens epic masterpiece Great Expectations is being in Hindi as Fitoor and the film stars Rekha playing the important character of Miss Havisham, along with Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. The film also stars Rahul Bhatt, Aditi Rao Hydri along with Lara Dutta and did complete its shooting a few days back.
It’s reported that Rekha had decided to opt out from the film, as she did not find her character’s looks being shown well in the film. A few portions of the film were reshot after she saw the rushes and was disappointed, but the ageless queen of Bollywood didn’t seem satisfied. Now the filmmakers have to look for a new actress to play this challenging role, and Ranbir and Katrina have to reshoot for the scenes. The film is being made the UTV and is directed by Abhisekh Kapoor.
It has been announced just some time back that Tabu would be playing the role, and it remains to be seen how well the film gets completed before its scheduled date of release of early 2016.
