Genelia IN and Jiah OUT in the new film

Bollywood director Ken Ghosh insists that Jiah Khan’s ouster from his upcoming film had nothing to do with her acting capabilities. He says he roped in Genelia as the heroine’s character changed over time. Ken rubbishes rumours that he made the change overnight as he didn’t like the rushes of whatever had been shot of Jiah so far.

“Jiah performs really well. She being replaced has nothing to do with her capabilities as an actress,” Ken said. So how did Genelia come into the picture? “Honestly speaking, it was the sea change in the female protagonist’s character that caused me to make the change. Earlier, the character was a lot hotter and Jiah fit the bill. Now she’s turned much cuter and Genelia turned out to be the perfect choice,” Ken explained.

“At the end of the day, Jiah and Genelia are quite different, whether in terms of looks or attitude. There is a different kind of energy expected from the newlywritten character and I’m getting that from Genelia,” he added.

The film also stars Shahid Kapur. The director said they were yet to zero in on a good title, but added that it would not be called Yahoo as reported earlier.
