Actor Randeep Hooda was recently ousted from the set of A Suitable Boy, an upcoming eight-part BBC series by noted filmmaker Mira Nair. As per a media report, an altercation with a makeup artiste led to Randeep’s ouster from the project. The actor, however, said something else in his defense.
The report said the incident took place at the film’s location in Lucknow.
A source from the production team was quoted as saying, “The cast and crew were stationed at the Hyatt Regency in Lucknow. In the initial leg of his stint, Randeep got into an argument with the make-up man (name undisclosed on request) about the look he was to sport on that day. It started out as a verbal altercation, but things quickly spiralled out of hand as the actor manhandled the make-up artiste. Mira was not present at the scene. However, word soon reached the filmmaker and the matter was duly escalated to the BBC team in the UK. The team promptly took cognisance of the episode, and a day later, they requested Randeep to respectfully bow out of the project.”
But when Randeep was asked about it, he has his own version of the story. The actor, however, said he left after completing the four-day shoot for his small role in the film.
He was quoted as saying, “Firstly, it was not a physical fight, but an argument with my make-up artist who has worked with me for many years and is working with me on Radhe. Secondly, I had a brief role on A Suitable Boy, which I did for my love for Mira. Thirdly, I did not exit the project; I finished my four days of work and moved on to other projects.” Randeep, who is currently working on Salman Khan’s next, Radhe, was to play Billy Irani, a suave Kolkata-based gentleman from Vikram Seth’s famous novel.
A few days before, the first look of the series was released. Check it out!
