Urvashi Sharma The game of musical chairs that has been plaguing the Jaya Bachchan-Raveena Tandon-Ayesha Takiya-Madhavan starrer Aap Ke Liye Hum has finally ended.

Urvashi Sharma who was supposed to play Ranvir Shorey’s wife has been replaced by Vidya Malvade, last seen as Sanjay Dutt’s wife in Sanjay Gadhvi’s Kidnap.

But the battle it seems has just begun. While the director Revathy S Varma accuses Urvashi of un-professionalism the young actress isn’t sitting idle either. She has her own story to tell. ”I can’t understand how I can be accused of un-professionalism when the makers of this film have been the most unprofessional. Their very first cheque bounced even before the first schedule. This wouldn’t happen to Jayaji’s cheque because she’s a legend, or Raveena Tandon or Ayesha Takia because they’re both established names. Only my cheque bounced. Why?”

Urvashi however absolves the director of all blame. ”I’ve nothing against Revathy. I blame the producers for being so unprofessional.”

In the meanwhile there’s another twist to the tale with the director accusing Sonal Chauhan of spreading false rumours and causing problems for the project.

Says Revathy, ”Sonal was never approached for Ayesha’s role.She was asked to do Urvashi’s role. When she opted out we asked Priyanka Kothari who loved the character. But somehow it didn’t work out. Now we’ve got Vidya Malvade to do it. I wish people would let me make my film in peace. Urvashi behaved as though she’s a big star. We couldn’t really afford her tantrums.”
