On December 13, HitList had reported that Varun Dhawan had walked out of Milan Talkies and now if sources are to be believed, Ayushmann Khurrana is now being considered for the lead role.
This upcoming drama is being directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia and has Ekta Kapoor as the producer. It would be interesting to note that first Shraddha Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor opted out of this film, after which there were talks about Imran Khan featuring in it.
However, this too didn’t happen as the actor was miffed over the controversy that erupted after the release of their film Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobaara. Soon after, Varun was considered for the role and then he walked out of the project as well.
The leading lady for the film is also yet to be finalised. Many actresses have been approached so far but nothing seems to have materialised. The film is expected to go on the floors in a few months’ time. When contacted, Balaji CEO Tanuj Garg said that no one has been signed yet. “Various names are under consideration right now; we will make an announcement once things are finalised,” he said.
