BizAsia reported only a week ago that Nitin Kakkar had confirmed that he had signed Fawad Khan for his next movie, to be produced by Salman Khan Films. Interestingly, it seems the director has now done a backtrack and said that the news isn’t true.
Kakkar had said that Khan was on board and that they are yet to sign an actress for the project. However, DNA reports that Kakkar has now denied saying any such thing. Coincidentally, there is currently tension about Pakistani actors in India and it seems Khan has since left the sub-continent and returned to his home country in the hope to ease the reports surrounding him and his fellow Pakistani actors.
Kakkar is saying that these are incorrect rumours surrounding him finalising Khan for the male lead role.
One wonders whether the film will actually happen with Khan featured in it now or whether Kakkar has now begun looking for a replacement.
Khan will be seen in Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ next but it is being said that he’s unlikely to take part in promotions.
