Sonam Kapoor starrer film Battle For Bittora, is gaining headlines since its inception. Well, the film even before going on floors has yet again come in the spotlight. The handsome star Fawad Khan who debuted in the tinsel town with actress Sonam in the film Khoobsurat, has apparently exited from the movie Battle For Bittora.
Actor Fawad who is gaining huge popularity amongst the masses for his acting skills, has backed out from the film. Battle For Bittora which is to be produced by Sonam’s sister Rhea Kapoor, has now shortlisted three other actors to be a part of the film citing Fawad’s exit. According to reports, the Kapoor sisters are considering one of the actors from Saif Ali Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar for the lead role opposite Sonam. Well, it’s also said that they are keen on casting multi-talented actor Farhan Akhtar, but no official announcement for the same is made.
It is much in the rumor mills that Fawad has stepped out from the film, because there were many creative differences between Sonam and Fawad during the movie Khoobsurat. However, the actor then cleared the air saying he had already confirmed the dates and therefore couldn’t go forward with Battle For Bittora.
Now which hero from Abhishek, Saif and Farhan will bag the role is still a mystery. Earlier the sisters had come together with a fairytale like movie Khoobsurat, but this time it’s said that with Battle For Bittora, the Kapoor sisters are venturing into something serious.
The film Battle For Bittora, will be directed by Shashanka Ghosh and will be produced by Rhea Kapoor under Anil Kapoor Films Company. Apart from Battle For Bittora, Sonam is gearing up for biopic Neerja whereas Fawad Khan will be seen in the film Kapoor & Sons which also stars Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra in lead roles. The film will also see veteran actor Rishi Kapoor in a key role.
