But now, buzz in the industry is that the makers of the film are looking for replacements for the two actors. ETimes has learnt that Abhimanyu Dassani is being approached for one of the roles and Javed Jaffrey’s son Meezaan could also be on the list of probables.
Due to these sudden changes in cast, the shooting of the film has been delayed and it may resume after the issues around the cast are resolved.
Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali has had a strange journey this far. First Salman Khan was to act in Kick 2, which was to be directed by Sajid Nadiadwala but that film was put on hold and Nadiadwala announced Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali instead, with directorial duties being entrusted to Farhad Samji.
After Bachchan Pandey failed to light up the box office, there was buzz that Farhad might be replaced as the dircetor of Kabhi Eid… but then, the project changed hands as Salman Khan took over production responsibility from Sajid Nadiadwala. It’ll be interesting to see how many more twists and turns happen with this film. Watch this space for more.
