Farah Khan’s upcoming film seems to be competing in an obstacle race. After roping in Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan, the choreographer-turned-director looks to be meeting a dead end every time when it comes to casting the fourth actor for her film.
After John Abraham and Dev Patel turned Farah down, buzz is that even the one-release-old Ayushmann Khurrana, has given her the ultimate snub by declining the project. Sources say that the newbie apparently does not want to be part of a multi-starrer.
Our source informs, “The film has four lead actors and SRK is playing the lead role. Apart from that Abhishek Bachchan is already part of the film. Farah recently signed on Prithviraj for the film. However, the last male actor still remains elusive. Now Farah is thinking of casting a newcomer.”
According to the insiders, Farah had earlier spoken to John, who had date problems, post which she apparently spoke to Dev. The source adds, “Dev was not keen to do commercial films and he politely declined the offer. Farah then spoke to Ayushmann. He did not wish to do multi-starrers, considering he is doing two solo lead roles.”
John had earlier told HitList, “Farah’s dates coincide with the ones I have given to another producer. There is no point in stretching my schedule and I had to say no.”
However, both Farah and Ayushmann denied the buzz.
