Confirming the news, Ali says, ““ Yes i have been approached for the part in what I call the wee hours of the movie's commencement, to replace Mr Arjun Rampal. Due to some issues. I read the part and said yes immediately, its a challenging role, so i am still waking from the reality of it. And already immersed in the looks and costumes of the film because there is very little time to prepare. “
