It was also heard that Parineeti and Sonakshi had given the look test, but couldn’t fit the bill. Kriti Sanon though was pretty much locked, but she refuted at the end moment for another two-heroine crime drama film of Anurag Kashyap called “Womaniya”, which stars Taapsee Pannu. Housefull 4 is also said to be the other reason behind Krti’s denial for the movie.
