Farhan was apparently offered a film, but the makers changed their decision to cast him at the last minute
Farhan Akhtar will be next seen in debutant director Ranjit Tiwari’s Lucknow Central. The actor is playing a singer in the film. However , if sources are to believed then the actor was offered to be part of another film but did not sign it. A source says, “Farhan was to play the lead in an upcoming film. It was an action thriller and the makers thought he is suitable for the role. But they did not get back to him, although he said to have liked to script.”
It is said that the makers were bit sceptical because Farhan’s last film Rock On 2 did not do well at box office. A source says, “The producers are now looking for another actor who can do some action oriented role. They thought it would be a bit of a risk to cast him and therefore decided to approach another actor. The search to cast new actor is still on and the makers will soon announced the project officially.”
Lucknow Central is produced by Nikhil Advani and has Diana Penty in the lead. Farhan was supposed to be part of his home production Gold, directed by Reema Kagti and featuring Akshay Kumar.
