Turns out the veteran actor won’t be playing the Pakistani lawyer who defended real-life Sarabjit Singh in the film to be directed by Ishwar Singh and starring Sonakshi Sinha and Anurag Sinha.
The film’s producer Subhash Ghai (below) clarified the same by saying, “Yes, we did approach him but after reading the script, he informed us that he was playing a lawyer's role in another film that he had already committed to. So we mutually agreed not to cast him in this film though I would have loved to have worked with him.”
