Saif Ali Khan was supposed to feature in the upcoming movie Mr. Chaalu but reports say that Haider actor Shahid Kapoor has replaced Saif.
Makers of the movie Mr. Chaalu have roped in Shahid Kapoor after Saif Ali Khan backed down from the project.
It has been learnt that Saif Ali Khan moved out of the film on some remuneration issues and now having received Shahid Kapoor's positive response, Mr. Chaalu is likely to get on the floors soon.
A leading publication quoted a source saying, "Shahid recently got a narration. He has responded positively to the story as it's the kind of character that he hasn't done in a while. The makers are now locking the dates for workshops that will start soon."
Co-produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, Mr. Chaalu features Kangana Ranaut and this is the first time that Shahid and Kangana will be seen together on screen.
Also, Richa Chadda and Pooja Bhatt will have pivotal roles in the film Mr. Chaalu in which Shahid Kapoor will play the role of a womaniser.
