Success gone to Arjun Rampal’s head?

1151The success and the resultant adulation after Rock On!! have gone to Arjun Rampal’s head.When Arjun asked Vipul Shah to double his price for the already signed Action Replay, it led to his ouster from the film. He has now been replaced by Roadies host and MTV VJ Ranvijay.  A source close to the production house said, “Ever since Arjun won awards for his performance in Rock On!!, he feels that the money that Vipul was paying him for Action Replay was not justified. He demanded almost double of the earlier amount and refused to work for the earlier sum.Vipul was completely taken aback with Arjun’s demand as the producer-director had worked with Arjun in Aankhen (2002), when he was yet to make his mark.

Also, after a long wait, the two friends had got together for this film. Feeling betrayed by Arjun’s high-handed behaviour, he replaced him with Ranvijay. The shooting began yesterday at ND Studios. Arjun Rampal confirmed that he is no longer doing Action Replay and said, “Yes it is true that I am not doing Vipul’s film but it is not because of the money factor. There are some other issues which are best left between Vipul and me. When we checked with Vipul Shah, he maintained a diplomatic stand and said, “Arjun and I are friends.

His dates were clashing with Rajneeti, so we mutually decided not to work on this film. Ranvijay is doing the role now.The film also stars Randhir Kapoor with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Akshay Kumar, who have been paired opposite each other after Khakhee (2004).
