Apparently Vidhu initially approached Shahrukh Khan but for some reasons SRK backed out of the project. And so he approached Khiladi Kumar with the idea while he was attending the success bash for Singh Is Kinng. As per few reports, Vidhu was seen chatting constantly with Akki throughout the bash. He left no stone unturned to let him know how much he loved him in Singh Is Kinng and his other releases. In fact he even made it a point to offer him a lift back home so that he could talk business on the way.
Hope we could soon see the new King of Bollywood in Vidhu's film.
