Avika Gor, known for her successful stint in television and the South film industry, is now gearing up for her much-awaited Bollywood debut in ‘1920: Horrors of the Heart’. Currently engaged in promotional activities for the film, she recently appeared on Siddharth Kannan’s chat show where she shared information about her personal and professional life.
During the conversation, Siddharth Kannan asked Avika about her alleged exit from Salman Khan’s ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’. Avika clarified that she was not the one who backed out, rather she was replaced by someone else. She explained that the paperwork was completed and she was going to sign the contract the next day, but she got a call saying they had decided to go ahead with another actor. Avika accepted their decision without any qualms.
She further revealed that she had anticipated being replaced as she had previously experienced a similar situation with the same team in Salman Khan’s ‘Antim’. Avika said that she was replaced just two weeks before the shooting of the film. Despite these events, Avika maintained a gracious attitude, admitting that it was ultimately the filmmakers’ decision and that they must have had their reasons.
When asked if she felt hurt, Avika admitted that, as a human, she had such feelings and wished that the situation would not happen again. However, she believed that things happen for a reason and respected the filmmakers’ choices. She admitted that they have to make wise decisions in selecting the best fit for their films.
On the professional front, Avika Gor is eagerly gearing up for her Bollywood debut in ‘1920: Horrors of the Heart’. Written by Mahesh Bhatt and directed by Krishna Bhatt, the film is produced by Loneranger Products and Houseful Motion Pictures. Audiences can anticipate its theatrical release on June 23.
