But now there is a discussion in the industry that the makers of the film are looking for a replacement for these two actors. ETimes has learned that Abhimanyu Dasani is being approached for a role and Javed Jaffrey’s son Mizan may also be on the list of possible candidates.
Due to these sudden changes in the cast, the shooting of the film has been delayed and may resume once the issues surrounding the cast are resolved.
Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali has been a fantastic journey so far. Earlier, Salman Khan was to act in Kick 2, which was to be directed by Sajid Nadiadwala But the film was stopped and Nadiadwala instead announced Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, with Farhad Samji as the director.
After Bachchan Pandey failed to shine at the box office, there was talk that Farhad would one day be replaced as the director of Eid … but after that, the project changed hands as Salman Khan took over the responsibility of production from Sajid Nadiadwala. It will be interesting to see how many twists and turns come with this film. See this space for more.
