A source close to the development told Mirror that the deal with Fawad was sealed recently when the actor was in town for the Filmfare Awards.
"The makers (Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani) and Reema are convinced that Fawad will be able to convincingly pull of this role of a suave charmer who cons women into losing their heart to him and then cheats them out of their money. For him too, it'll be a welcome change from the quintessential stiffupper-lip royal that he essayed in his first film," the source added.

The source also added, "After Kangana's exit, Reema has substantially changed the script. The film has strong roles for both protagonists and a leading lady is likely to be finalised in a week's time."
Mr. Chaloo goes on the floors in August.
