For months, it was heard that Govinda would be playing Alia Bhatt۪s father in Vikas Bahl۪s Shandaar۪ but recently, news came that the actor rejected the role. There are now strong rumours that Bahl is trying to convince Karan Johar to step into the role. While Johar seems to have rejected the role too, Bahl is still working on convincing him.
Vikas is very impressed with Karan۪s performance in Anurag Kashyap۪s Bombay Velvet۪ and felt he۪d do justice to Shandaar۪. But after considering the offer for a while, Karna said he was not interested, a source informed Mumbai Mirror.
Apparently, director Sajid Khan was also considered for the role but rejected the offer as he is busy with his next directorial.
Shandaar۪ will see Alia Bhatt opposite Shahid Kapoor for the first time.
