Finally a sigh of relief from the torture of Sajid Khan! Actor-director Sajid Khan admits to being approached by the makers of "Shaandar" to play a Sindhi businessman in the film but says he declined the offer.
It's been over a month since director Vikas Bahl started looking for the right cast to play the role of a businessman. Apparently, Vikas also offered the role to Karan Johar but the later turned it down.
"Yes, I was offered the film, but no, I'm not doing Shaandar. I'm busy scripting my next film, a youthful romantic-comedy," Sajid Khan said on the rumours of him being cast in Shaandar.
Sajid Khan's last release Humshakals was a debacle. The slapstick comedy got a thumbs down from the movie buffs and flopped miserably. Moreover, the movie also created a controversy when its co-stars Bipasha Basu and Saif Ali Khan showed their dis-interest. While Bips backed off during promotions itself, Chote Nawab woke up from sleep after the movie released and was badly criticised.
While it is still unknown who will play the Sindhi businessman in Shaandar, Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor are already on board to play the lead roles. This is the first time we will see young Alia Bhatt and handsome hunk, Shahid Kapoor playing on-screen. The Highway actress is a big fan of Shahid and fell in love with him after watching Ishq Vishk.
