It has emerged that Shah Rukh Khan had been approached earlier to play a cop for Abhiraj Minwala’s film, but later turned it down.
Reported on The Asian Age, Minwala who made his directorial debut with ‘Loveyatri’ (2018), had asked the ‘Dear Zindagi’ (2018) actor to play the role of a police officer for his film with Aayush Sharma as the lead antagonist.
According to a source both actors declined respectively, “But it is not just SRK who had said no to it. The role that Aayush has is a very powerful one and any big star would have been intimidated to play second fiddle to the relatively new actor. Salman has stepped into the film to give it a bigger feel and is hence playing the role in an effort to give his brother in law’s career an impetus. Aayush is also working in Kwatha, which has Isabelle Kaif opposite him in the lead.”
As we know, Khan has finally given his nod to Rajkumar Hirani’s next which will be co-produced by both their production houses. Though the script is still being finalised, filming is expected to go on floors in April.
