Varma took twitter to announce the news. He tweeted ,“ Due to date prblms to match combinations wth othr actors I am going ahead wth Rana daggubati instead of Abhishek Bachchan in Department."
Rana Daggubatti, who made his Bollywood debut with Rohan Sippy's recent release Dum Maaro Dum (DMD), will be playing the role of a cop in Department. It is said that Abhishek Bachchan has liked the script but could not approve the project, as he has committed for Ladies and Gentlemen, Bol Bachchan and Dhoom 3.
