For a long, it was said that the Tiger Shroff-starrer Screw Dheela, directed by Shashank Khaitan, had been shelved. According to sources, the unpredictable box office, the soaring budget, and the subdued response to the film's announcement were the reasons. The film's makers reportedly decided to replace the cast of the movie, though it was never made clear if it was on hold or still in progress. Now, if reports are to be believed, Shanaya Kapoor will reportedly take Rashmika Mandanna's place in Screw Dheela.

A source close to the project tells Bollywood Hungama, “Yes, there has been a change in the cast, Shanaya will be replacing Rashmika. Although Shanaya is yet to sign the dotted line, everything is in place, and when the film starts it will headline Shanaya as the female lead”.

Revealing more information on the abrupt change, the source says that Shanaya Kapoor was supposed to appear in Shashank's other Dharma Productions project, Bedhadak, alongside Lakshya Lalwani and Gurfateh Pirzada. However, for some reason, the production of the movie has been put on hold. While the problems are resolved, Shanaya has moved to Screw Dheela.

Although there has been no official statement regarding either of the projects and issues, such as the casting change for Screw Dheela and the delay of Bedhadak, it appears that for director Shashank Khaitan, such problems are nothing out of the ordinary. It's interesting to note that Shashank initially announced Mr. Lele with Varun Dhawan, but later altered it to Govinda Naam Mera with Vicky Kaushal.

The movie Screw Dheela, which will be produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, is billed as an action comedy. Tiger Shroff and Shanaya Kapoor will star in the movie, though it's unknown when filming will start. Tiger has a busy schedule at work with Ganapath with Kriti Sanon and Bade Miyan Chote Miyan with Akshay Kumar.
