Actress Tamannaah Bhatia, who made an unimpressive Hindi debut in 'Himmatwala', has lost the chance to play Shraddha Kapoor's role in the Telugu version of Bollywood hit 'Aashiqui 2'.

The casting happened after weeks of intense negotiation with Tamannaah, who apparently asked for an astronomical amount to act in the film.

"There were problems with Tamannaah from the word go. Not only was she asking for an unreasonable amount of money, she was also not the film's co-producer and leading man Sachin Joshi's choice," sources said.

Finally, the role has gone to former beauty queen Ankita Shorey.

"I felt a newcomer would fit the bill better. The role required someone innocent and unspoilt. Ankita Shorey is perfect for the part. Just as Shraddha Kapoor was in the Hindi version." Sachin said.

Ankita has been asked to stay away from viewing Shraddha's performance. "We want her to interpret the role in her own way," Sachin added.

The Telugu version of 'Aashiqui 2' would have a happy ending.

I can look back with satisfaction that I could play a role in defusing the social strife in different parts of the state — Mirchpur, Pabnawa, Jind rail and road rook agitation. These were sorted out amicably due to our efforts.
