A few months ago, there were reports about Anurag Kashyap's plan to make a woman centric film which was titled as Womaniya featuring Taapsee Pannu and Kriti Sanon. According to the grapevine, Kriti Sanon has opted out of the project owing to date issues and Bhumi Pednekar has stepped in to play her role in the film.

Given the fact that Kriti Sanon is handful of interesting projects like Housefull 4, Panipat whose prep has already begun with Kriti and Luka Chuppi which will later go on the floors, it seems that Kriti couldn't afford to green light Womaniya as she couldn't accommodate it in her busy schedule. Reports suggest that the makers of Womaniya are planning to cast Bhumi Pednekar in the film.

However, Bhumi Pednekar's spokesperson has informed that the actress is looking into the scripts and is yet to finalize on any. For those who came in late, Womaniya is a reel adaptation of the real life women sharp shooters Prakashi and Chandro Tomar who aced the sport after the age of 60 and scooped over many awards for the same.

If the reports turn out to be true, Bhumi Pednekar will be seen in a power packed role after playing a dacoit in Son Chiriya. According to sources, Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu will have to undergo physical training to get into the skin of the character. The prep for the film has begun already and that the film's shoot, which was supposed to commence in August has been postponed to October. The film has been delayed because the makers of the film want the actresses to consume enough time for their mental and physical training for their respective roles.

The cast and other details of Womaniya will be revealed by the end of August.
