As you all know that Shruti Haasan was the first choice for the lead role, who had even begun fight training for the role. The movie was promoted with glamour galore by Shruti, at the Cannes Film Festival 2017, but later walked out of the project citing creative differences with the makers.
Sanghamitra is a huge budget movie and its promotions at Cannes led to big hue and cry once Shruti was reported to be no longer a part of the project. It was soon announced that Disha will be replacing her.
But ask Disha about it and she says she did not “replace” anyone. “I did not replace her. I don’t know what happened. I didn’t even ask them, honestly. I am no one to replace Shruti Haasan. She is much bigger and much experienced than me.
I am relatively a newcomer. I am only a few films old. I am not anyone to replace anyone. But I don’t know what happened. You should ask the director of the film,” the actress said at recent media interaction. Well, whatever the reason may be, we are super excited to see Disha play the role of a warrior princess in Sanghamitra.
