After making his Bollywood debut in Khoobsurat with the gorgeous starlet of B-town, a strong rumour was making rounds on the media that Fawad will be seen opposite the actress again in the comedy her father is producing. However, it was soon reported that he has backed out of the film due to his reluctance to perform intimate scenes.
However, now it turns out that isn’t exactly the case. While talking to PTI, Fawad said, “It was more of a matter of time-lines not being able to match than anything else. So Battle of Bittora is something we are yet to sit down and talk. I am yet to hear the updated draft of the film.”
“The first draft was there but they were wanting to revisit the draft. But by the time that happened Sonam was already doing Neerja. I was also committing to other things,” he added.
He further said that he has “lots of love and respect for the Kapoors, Sonam and Rhea, they are like family.”
Fawad clarified that some other actors are also being considered for the role and he is not the only option for the makers of the film.
“They are also looking at other actors,” Fawad said. “I am not the only option so let’s see what happens. It’s an interesting story though.”
Reportedly, Farhan Akhtar is also being considered for the lead role in “Battle for Bittora” which is based on Anuja Chauhan’s novel of the same name.
