Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar had approached actor Hrithik Roshan for her upcoming directorial venture which also stars Ranveer Singh. The film’s concept is about Mumbai rappers and that interested Hrithik. But now we hear Hrithik saying that he was never offered this movie. But we will tell you the real reason behind his denial. Apparently, the actor was not keen to play a parallel lead in the movie.
As per reports, Zoya is now considering Fawad Khan for this role. A source revealed, “She loved Fawad in Kapoor & Sons and decided to work with him right after watching the film. However, she never had him in mind while writing this film. When Hrithik said no, she was in need for a dashing hero who could also act well. Fawad totally fit the bill.”
The sources further added, “Zoya has briefed Fawad about the basic premise of the film and the two will meet soon and take their discussion forward.”
