Vashu Bhagnani said, "Madhavan has said yes to Faltu and will be in the film." There was also a buzz that Maddy will replace Akshay Kumar in the film. "I am making it clear that though Madhavan has been signed for the film, he will not be playing the role that was to be played by Akshay. Akki still remains in the film; in fact we are yet to finalize 2 to 3 more actors. Contrary to reports that have come earlier, if one new actor is selected or finalized it does not necessarily mean that another has quit," states Bhagnani.
He further adds, "As of now, we are in the final stage of scripting the film, and within the next couple of weeks, we will begin the shoot of the film."
Faltu will star Jackky Bhagnani and newcomer Pooja Chopra. The film will be directed by Remo D'Souza.
