“Rakesh Roshan has not directed a single film in the last five years. Initially, he was keen to have an outside director and had even approached Rakesh Omprakash Mehra to direct the film. However, the filmmaker later decided to take charge himself. And he wanted a strong character to play the negative lead. There were various names being considered including that of Shahrukh Khan. But Vivek Oberoi has bagged the role. The role has been kept under wraps as the dialogues of the film are still being penned, though the screenplay is ready”, added the source.
