Nora Fatehi replaces Jacqueline in Vidyut Jammwal's 'Crakk'
"Crakk: Jeetegaa Toh Jiyegaa", which is allegedly India's first extreme sports film, now has a new female protagonist as Jacqueline Fernandez has been replaced by Nora Fatehi.
Sources informed The Hindustan Times that the switch happened as T-series took over, who had been pushing to make Nora their poster child for a while now. The film also stars Arjun Rampal.
"Crakk" is directed by Aditya Datt who previously helmed Himesha Reshammiya-starrer 2005 romantic thriller "Aashiq Banaya Aapne". "Crakk" will mark Aditya's second collaboration with Vidyut after the 2019 action thriller "Commando 3".
Moreover, "Crakk" had previously been under Vidyut Jammwal's production, Action Hero Films prior to T-series take over.
"Crakk" was apparently Jacqueline's first project after her involvement with conman Suresh Chandrashekhar. The saga does not end here as Nora was also involved in the row, having filed a case for defamation against Jacqueline and several media outlets for spreading defamatory content against her in relation to Sukesh Chandrashekhar.
Nora further alleged that Jacqueline and the media outlets are "acting in connivance with each other" and accused the fellow actor of "prolonged and unnecessary harassment" through her statement to the media on why Nora was listed as a witness in the case.
