However, the latest reports claim that the Crew actress walked out of the much-anticipated movie citing date issues. 

As per a report in Pinkvilla, Bebo and the team of Toxic have mutually parted ways and the actress is no longer a part of the movie.

The entertainment portal quoted a close source to the development as saying, "Kareena Kapoor’s dates do not align with the dates of Yash for Toxic. After making efforts to set the calendar right, the makers have amicably parted ways.”

Further, the source added that after Kareena's exit, the makers have already initiated conversations with several actresses for the role.

Furthermore, the source added, "Toxic has a strong sibling emotion and the part of the sister is very crucial to the narrative, warranting the presence of a top star. The makers are looking to cast actresses with Pan India presence for the part.”

Well, if the report is anything to go by, it must be quite disheartening for Bebo's fans. However, the makers still remain tight-lipped about the cast. Fans need to wait for an official confirmation regarding the cast. However, reportedly, it has been confirmed that Kiara Advani will be seen as the female lead and the shooting is currently underway. The film is set to hit theaters on April 10, 2025.
