Recently it was also reported that he also approached Ranbir Kapoor for the male lead but the star turned down the offer, reports DNA India. On Sunday, Kartik Aaryan was was pictured while making his way out of Bhansali’s office, and the reports started making the rounds that he is also in the running to play the male lead opposite Bhatt.
