The firebrand and devil-may-dare Dj Jenny D has replaced MTvSplitsvilla and Bigg Boss participant Sakshi Pradhan in the film Bastards. Thefilm is directed by Hemant Nilim Das and co-produced by Franklyn R and HemantNilim Das. While the producers anddirector were not willing to comment on the subject a source told us thatSakshi Pradhan was ‘acting difficult and pricy’. A little birdie told us, “A photo shoot wasscheduled for a promotional advertisement for the film last week and SakshiPradhan refused to be part of it. She demanded the producer get her a makeupman who charges Rs 25,000/- per day and wanted costumes worth Rs 50,000/- forthe shoot. The producer was thus forced to drop Sakshi Pradhan from the cast ofthe film and replace her overnight with DJ Jenny D.” The film Bastards is bilingual and will be dubbed in Hindi, Bengali and English.
The film also features well-known male models and actorsJeet Gupta and Mani – both of them have worked in several reality shows and arenow concentrating on films. Hemant Nilim Das’ film Underground which wasrecently completed after being shot on the Indo-Chinese border is ready forrelease and is likely to be released in end-June this year. Underground features Rekha Rana along with Jeet Gupta and Nihar Thakkar in the role of a son of Pakistani diplomat. Awadesh Mishra a national award-winning actor plays the role of a NGO activist who was kidnapped by a terrorist organization way back in 1997 from a north-eastern river island.
Hemant Nilim Das said, “I have roped in Dj Jenny D for thefilm Bastards which deals with the sensitive subject of cross-border terrorism,secret killings and state-sponsored extortion. We tried to contact SakshiPradhan but she was not available for comment. Here is the promotional posterof the film Bastards which is very controversial and is likely to ruffle manyfeathers when it is released. For now we hope Sakshi Pradhan is not ruffled onbeing
