There has been much speculation about the departure of Randeep Hooda from A suitable child from Mira Nair. Initial reports suggested that Randeep had an argument with his makeup artist about his appearance in a scene. Supposedly, it later became a physical fight. This incident took place in the absence of director Mira Nair. Apparently, she asked Randeep to abandon the project given the unpleasant incident.
Cleaning the air, Randeep talked about the incident in an interview with a leading newspaper. The actor clarified that it was never a physical fight, but a small discussion. He also revealed that he had finished his part in the project, which was short enough to cover it in four days. Only then did he move on to the next project. Randeep further clarified that the makeup artist has worked with him for years. He will also work with Randeep on his next project, Radhe, with Salman Khan.
Randeep Hooda plays Billy Irani in A suitable child. The series is an adaptation of the classic novel by Vikram Seth and also stars Ishaan Khatter and Tabu in the lead roles.
