Farhan had announced about this project quite sometime back and was considering Saif Ali Khan for the movie. But for some reasons Saif couldn't be a part of it and ultimately Farhan finalized Akshaye Khanna.
When Akshaye heard about the script he was so kicked off by the character that he immediately gave his nod to Farhan. Farhan is looking forward to begin the shooting by the year end. Meanwhile he is busy with the promotion of his upcoming film Rock On!! as a debutant actor which is set to hit the screens in coming August.
