Pakistan turned Bollywood heartthrob, Fawad Khan has told the media that he is still in talks for the role in ‘Battle Of Bittora’ despite reports he had rejected the film.
The actor reportedly rejected the Anil Kapoor production over certain intimate scenes he was uncomfortable with in the script. Talking to PTI, Khan said, I have lots of love and respect for the Kapoors, Sonam and Rhea, they are like family. The first draft was there but they were wanting to revisit the draft. But by the time that happened Sonam was already doing Neerja۪. I was also committing to other things.”
The actor said he was working on dates to accommodate the project, It was more of a matter of time-lines not being able to match than anything else. So Battle of Bittora۪ is something we are yet to sit down and talk. I am yet to hear the updated draft of the film.”
Khan added that he was not the only actor being considered for the role, They are also looking at other actors. I am not the only option so let۪s see what happens. It۪s an interesting story though.
