He was supposed to play a cop's role in the film that stars Shah Rukh Khan. The project was supposed to go on the floors in September, but according to sources, due to SRK's injury on the sets of Happy New Year, the shoot has been pushed to October.
Farhan had already committed to Bejoy Nambiar's film that co-stars Amitabh Bachchan and is being produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. So now Farhan will only be co-producing the film and the makers are on the look out for someone to do the cop's role. Sonam Kapoor was in talks to be the female lead but nothing has been finalised yet.
