After reports of having been approached for Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Madamji’ opposite Priyanka Chopra, rumour has it that Fawad has been approached for Abhishek Chaubey’s ‘Udta Punjab‘ to play a pivotal role. The character was earlier slated to be portrayed by Ayushmann Khurrana, according to Indian media.
Reportedly, he will be paired opposite Kareena Kapoor in this Shahid Kapoor starrer. Shahid will be seen romancing his ‘Shaandaar’ co-star Alia Bhatt yet again in this movie.
‘Udta Punjab’ caught headlines as soon as Kareena Kapoor’s name came into news to be cast in the movie which also stars her ex beau Shahid Kapoor. Though the duo will not share screen space, the fans of this jodi are surely quite excited.
Also, Ayushmann Khurrana’s controversial exit from the movie brought Kareena’s involvement under scanner. She was said to be responsible for his ouster as she, reportedly, didn’t want to work with a lesser known star like Ayushmann. The charges, though, were denied later.
