Fawad Khan, Amitabh Bachchan to do film together?
“Zoya has briefed Fawad about the basic premise of the film and the two will meet soon and take their discussion forward,” Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying. “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,” added the source.
However, Hrithik later denied the report saying, “I can never say no to Zoya. She has not offered me any film recently. But I am sure we’ll be working together soon again.”
