Sonam Kapoor Ahuja is still on the search for a male lead for her much delayed home production with Rhea Kapoor ‘Battle Of Bittora’.
Reported by Bollywood Hungama, originally when the script was finalised, Fawad Khan was first choice to star opposite Kapoor, but after the ban on Pakistani actors working in Bollywood came into place and vice-versa, Khan had to drop out. There were talks of Dulquer Salmaan to be paired with Kapoor, but after their recent film ‘The Zoya Factor’ failing to score big at the box office, it seems the Kapoor sisters are not so keen and are back to square one.
A source said the struggle partly comes down to the film being female-led, “The Battle Of Bittora is again a heroine-driven project. With Sonam as a producer most if not all leading men would feel they would be side-lined.”
