The shoot was slated to begin in the last week of January but as of now, there were no reports about the film. According to the sources, Shahrukh has now backed out from the project and is now planning to act in Don 3 directed by Farhan Akthar. As Shahrukh stepped out of it, the makers are now looking for new options.

Apparently, talented young actor Rajkumar Rao has been approached for the lead role in the film. Raj Kumar Rao has recently scored a commercial blockbuster with Stree and doing a high profile film like this will further increase his market. Though he is yet to sign the dotted line, reports claim that he is mostly okayed it.
