Marathi actress Minal Ghorpade had never imagined that a love break-up would cost her two promising Marathi projects and an opportunity to star opposite Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff.
It's also learnt that the filmmaker has replaced Minal with Manjari Phadnis in Janmantar, which is a thriller based on para-psychology.
Filmmaker Prasad Tarkar who was in a relationship with Minal has dropped the actor from his two upcoming projects — Janmantar and Maya after their affair went kaput.
Tarkar said, "We were in a relationship and since we are no longer together, Minal will not be part of any of my future projects. Manjari, who was actually my first choice for this film will be essaying Minal's character of a psychology student in Janmantar opposite Jackie. We will be re-shooting some parts of the film which have been shot with Minal but her character remains the same."
When we tried to get in touch with Minal, she refused to comment on the issue.
