Fawad Khan replaces one of Bollywood's top Khans

Reema Kagti's movie 'Mr Chaloo' goes on floors in August

Web Desk February 27, 2015

Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan will step into Saif Ali Khan's shoes to play a scheming womaniser in Reema Kagti's next, reported The Times Of India.

After Saif Ali Khan left Reema Kagti's Mr.Chaloo over remuneration issues, the makers started hunting for a 'suitable boy' to play a scheming womaniser. The makers have now finalised our very own Fawad Khan for this role.

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."

Gp65 | 8 years ago | Reply Bad headline. When one speaks of 'one of Bollywood's top Khans', one is speaking of Amir, Salman and Shah Rukh. Saif has never been considered one of Bollywood's top Khans. There is not a sinle 100 crore movie with Saif as a solo hero (as opposed to an ensemble film). Even younger actors like Ranbeer Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Siddharth! Siddharth Malhotra and Arjun Kapoor have given a solo 100 crore hit.
Hilarious | 8 years ago | Reply @Ibrar: Bollywood being taken over by Pak singers and actors? Wishful thinking much? There is as much possibility of that happening as Muslims overtaking Hindus population in India - ain't happening! That said, talented Pak singers and actors are of course always welcome here. We rate quality and I'm sure there are a few far, far better than some of our Bollywood abominations. Similarly, I support having Pak cricketers in IPL, if they are deemed good enough to bid for. Why not?
