Actor Anshuman Jha of Love Sex Aur Dhokha (2010) fame, who managed to bag a bigger role in Kismet Love Paisa Dilli (KLPD), with actors Vivek Oberoi and Mallika Sherawat, might get little screen time to exhibit his acting prowess. Apparently, Vivek has chopped off a big chunk of Anshuman’s role
from the film. A source close to the project reveals that the latter half of the film was mostly about Anshuman, which has been cut short during editing. “When it was shot Anshuman was all over the second half, but he was hardly seen when the final print came out. It’s now focused only on Vivek and Mallika,” says the source. Anshuman says, “They (Vivek and Mallika) have been around for a long time. So this is intentional. I don’t understand much of it. That’s what Amit (Chandra, producer) wanted and that’s what he has done.”
Vivek Oberoi and Mallika Sherawat had a blast while promoting Kismat Love Paisa Dilli.
The actor was apparently asked to keep his dates free for a week so that he could participate in the promotions, but he was never asked to get involved. “When you have Sehwag in the team you will not send Virat Kohli as the opening batsman. I am more than happy. Hopefully the viewers will be able to see my performance and judge me based on it,” says Anshuman. “This is only my second film and I hope I get smarter as I grow,” he adds with a laugh.
