Sometime back it was reported that Irrfan Khan and Kangana Ranaut will be seen sharing screen space in Sai Kabir's 'Divine Lovers'. However later the 'Queen' actress opted out of this French production citing date issues. The latest buzz we hear now is that the 'Hate Story 3' actress Zareen Khan has stepped into Kangana's shoes.
The film's director confirmed this latest development to Bombay Times and was quoted saying, "Yes, it is true. Kangana is like a sister to me. Unfortunately, we couldn't work out the dates. She is busy and we wanted to start the film soon." He further added that casting Zareen for the film was an impromptu decision and said, "She fit the bill perfectly as we wanted a girl with Pathani looks. She will undergo two months of training which will be overseen by Irrfan himself. The film is an adventure comedy and we plan to start shooting in September."
