Sony Entertainment Television’s next huge show ‘Porus’ has been in the news for its ever growing star cast.

The latest buzz doing the rounds is that Rohit Roy has walked out of the magnum opus series due to date clashes with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’.

A source told DNA India, “Rohit had started prepping for the historical and had given dates in April. However, his film with SLB, due to go on floors by year-end, got preponed and pre-production work on the film begins next month. Rohit felt it would be better to opt out of the serial.”

The report adds that Redij, who was previously seen in ‘Peshwa Bajirao’ as Chhatrapati Shivaji, will be playing the role of Porus’ father. The shoot of the show is already underway in Thailand.
