Our source said, “Rumy was very keen to cast Rishi Kapoor for one of the roles and Rishi was keen to do it. However his dates were clashing with Sudhir Mishra’s Mehrunnisa so he had to opt out.”

Jaffrey says, “Yes, I have finalised Anupam, Annu and Pareshbhai for the three key roles. They are brilliant actors and I am glad that I have them in my film. I am yet to cast the girl as I want her to be extremely beautiful and talented as there are so many men who would be showering their attention to her.”

About Rishi Kapoor’s casting he says, “I was keen to sign him but he had date problems. I hope to work with him in the future.”
