Mumbai, March 14 -- Nawazuddin Siddiqui got his first lead role in Gangs Of Wasseypur (2012), a film in which Huma Qureshi was cast opposite him. And the duo was supposed to be seen together on the big screen again in an item number in Nawaz's next.
However, Huma had to turn down the offer to do the song. A source says, "She didn't have the dates. Also, the lyrics of the song didn't particularly match her image, so the search is now on for a replacement." The film, which is directed by Pushpendra Mishra, also features film-maker Anurag Kashyap as a cop.
When contacted, Huma confirms the news. She says, "I was approached, but I couldn't do it because of date issues."
