But Vicky Kaushal's loss could now be Shahrukh khan or Hrithik Roshan's gain. A source told TOI about the movie's casting, "Bhansali wants to explore the Hrithik-Deepika pairing at this stage since it will be a new pair. But, Shahrukh Khan has also shown interest in the project. Since the project is scheduled to roll in September, the director will take a decision shortly.''
