Fawad Khan Was Initially In Talks To Play Amitabh Bachchan's Grandson In 'Sarkar 3'? family, wedding pictures, age, height, weight, biography
Actor Amit Sadh of ‘Kai Po Che’ fame is all set to be seen playing the role of Shivaji alias Cheeku in Ram Gopal Varma’s upcoming flick ‘Sarkar 3’. It may surprise many that the role was initially offered to Pakistani actor Fawad Khan. However, the ongoing ban on artistes from the neighbouring land in the wake of infamous Uri attack became Fawad’s loss and Amit’s gain.
If recent media reports are to be relied upon, Fawad was the first choice for the significant role in ‘Sarkar 3’. Shivaji is the grandson of Subhash Nagre, who will be portrayed by Amitabh Bachchan in the movie. But, the idea of roping in Fawad was apparently turned down after movies such as ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, ‘Raees’ and ‘Dear Zindagi’ started to face controversies over having Pakistani actors in them.
On a related note, the upcoming political crime thriller is scheduled for a 2017 release. The flick also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Ronit Roy, Jackie Shroff and Yami Gautam. Bajpayee will be seen playing the role of Govind Deshpande, a slightly violent version of Arvind Kejriwal.
