There were reports about Akshaye Khanna and Richa Chaddha being roped in for Manish Gupta's directorial Section 375: Marzi Ya Jabardasti which is based on rape laws being misused by men and women. However, latest reports suggest that Akshaye Khanna has been ousted from the film.

A source informed a leading daily, "There have been several discussions and disagreements between the actor and the makers. Akshaye has violated the contract and has been unavailable for the longest time. Now, the whole team has decided to replace him in the film. They don't want to make the movie with him anymore." Richa Chadha has been retained in the film.

After the announcement of the project, several problems led to the ousted of the actor from the project. Another source informed the leading daily, "Akshaye had already signed the contract for a certain remuneration that was promised to him. But after he signed another film, he wanted twice the amount. He also asked for several changes in the script, and was disinterested in the project thereafter. He had allotted his dates for the film, but went back on his word. For the time being, the movie has been stalled."

He had also rejected a web series The Family Man as he had demanded high remuneration for the same. Adding further, the source said, "He needs to re-evaluate his market value before making such obstinate demands."

Moreover, the director and the producer along with the rest of the makers of Section 375: Marzi Ya Jabardasti are planning for a legal action against the actor.

"They are filing a lawsuit against Akshaye for breaching the contractual terms. They are also scouting for another hero and trying to get the film on floors as soon as possible," the source concluded.
