Here’s why Kriti Sanon quit Akshay Kumar’s Singh Is Bling

The industry took notice of Kriti Sanon’s impressive performance in ‘Heropanti’ and filmmakers lined-up to sign her for their films.

She signed the biggest film of her career when Akshay Kumar recommended her name for ‘Singh Is Bling’. However, soon after news broke out that she was in contention to play the lead in Rohit Shetty’s next with Shahrukh Khan, came reports that Amy Jackson had replaced Kriti in the Prabhu Deva directed film.

While Rohit hasn’t officially announced his film, Kriti has hinted that since ‘Singh Is Bling’ was getting delayed, her dates allotted to other films were clashing.

“I’m not doing ‘Singh Is Bling’ now. I think you all must have read. The film was getting delayed for many reasons. Now when the film is starting, its dates are clashing with my other projects, so I chose not to do it” Kriti told reporters during an event here in Mumbai.

Calling it a ‘mutual decision’, Kriti also said that Amy Jackson is perfect for the role.

“It is a mutual decision. Producer Ashvini Yardi and I tried a lot to work out the dates, but nothing worked. Then we mutually decided that I step out of the film. Now Amy Jackson is doing the film. Since I know the script, I can say she suits the role perfectly and I wish her all the best.”

Like most other stars, she refused to talk about her presence in Rohit Shetty’s film, even though she did drop a hint.

“I’m really sorry as I won’t be able to comment on that film right now. Wait for some more time, you will hear everything about the film.. I will talk about the film when the time is right.”



  • this is totally a fake news. the reason she opt out is she found out that the script is crap and the lead actor is Akki who is famous for negotiating the fee instead of focusing the script.
    Akki is over actor, Check.
    Akki personality imposed characters, Check.
    Popularity with women, Check (large viewing percentage).
    Great scripts, Check.
    Emotionless acting, Check.
    poor dialogue delivery, check
    One of the few male actors who’s stage presence I find so annoying I avoid movies he is in. Totally my loss as the stories are often in genre’s I enjoy. I must say Gabbar is back and SIB are destined to be disasters.

  • She was ten times better than Amy Jackson!!! Hope she is replaced with Alia or someone hotter!!!

  • kirti appears to b a very good girl and also performed well in her debut she definitely has a bright future ahead

  • The reason is simple. She didn’t want to deliver a flop with a terrible actor and a terrible director that too when she got an offer for a SRK-Shetty film!!

  • can’t say she made good or bad decision but if she cud be in the film then it wud be perfect match coz both are tall but Amy Jackson isn’t.

  • Indicine leave this one.
    Speculations are Hrithik teaming up with Vishal Bhardwaj for some project, you have any news on that?

  • Wow! Great news! She is very pretty. Glad she chose Rohit Sherty over Prabhu Deva. Rohit is a much better director.

    BTW, When will Rohit & SRK break the big news. Eagrely waiting to know whether Kajol is in it. Wanna hear it from either Rohit Shetty or SRK.

  • Brave and good decision kriti
    We have seen what prabhu deva did to sonakshi career his films have no role for actresses so this film would never be vital for kriti

  • Superb Decision By Kriti and Indicine Please Tell Us When We Hear Most Talked About Grand Announcement???

  • Kriti Sanon i think has a bright future in Bollywood . She was very good in Heropanti . She is beautiful and is decent in acting till now . Let us see whether she is a part of Dilwale or not . Singh Iss Bling is the only film of Akki for which i am not excited this year because of PrabhuDeva . R… Rajkumar and AJ both were stupid movies and most importantly both were so called original movies . Ramaiyaa Vastavaiyya was ok . Rowdy Rathore and Wanted were entertaining movies but were remakes . I am not saying PrabhuDevs cannot make a comeback but it will be difficult for him . Akshay gives second chance to directors . Previously he worked with Nikhil Advani in Patiala House after doing Chandni Chowk To China . I hope SIB is at least an entertaining movie . If SIB is a stupid movie then he should stop making movies .

  • where r akki fans especially kshitiz and ajinky hiding???

    yesterday they had to face a major embarrassment bcz of the new name ‘Gabbar Is Back’ given to the upcoming film of Sir akki and today this confirmation of kriti not doing sib!!!

    I really feel bad for kshitiz.he appears to b a good boy but his love for akshay often makes him behave in weird manners

  • Like deepika,she didnt do housefull2 for rajanis kochadian.the result know to everyone,hf2 become superhit in ipl and kochadian become rajanis biggest flop.thanks deepika,if she do hf2 then haters said filim work because of she.akki doesnt need top heroins like khans,he do hits without heroine like omg,hera pheri,baby.hope kriti will help srk to do 200 crore without last,amy jackson is stunning actress,if you doubt watch tamil filim i.

  • @king of 70 rupees,are you avoid filims like baby,spl26,omg,holiday.akshay doesnt need audiance like you,watch khans crap movies like hny,pk,dhoom3.

  • Arjun kapoor fans knowledge less than his idols acting ability.kritis debut filim is number1 with superstar mahesh babu,not heropanti.
    Who cares title,heroine,director.we want to see akshay on big waiting for mass masala gib and classic brothers.

  • @sambuddha idiotji ….
    Tell me where Arjun Kapoor stands ???? …. Plz tell reason behind flops from Besharm,gunday,kill dil , find fanny ,, dawat ,, TEVAR , ROY ,, badlapur ……???

    What is Arjun Kapoor infront of akki ??? Or even rajpal yadav ..??
