As per a report in Bollywood Hungama, Bhumi has rejected Ali Abbas’ next film starring Shahid.
A source said, “Bhumi was approached for the role. The makers felt she will fit the bill as Shahid’s wife and although the film primarily traces one day in Shahid’s life, Bhumi’s role is extremely important and pivotal. The makers had offered the film to Bhumi a few weeks ago.”
Bhumi didn’t like the character
