Fawad Khan was supposed to reunite with his 'Khoobsurat' co-star Sonam Kapoor for Shashanka Ghosh's 'Battle For Bittora' which is an adaptation of Anuja Chauhan's novel with the same title.
Few days back there were several rumours doing rounds that Fawad won't be a part of this film anymore considering his no-kissing-no-boldness conditions.
And now there is a buzz that Farhan Akhtar has stepped into his shoes. A leading daily quoted a source saying, "After a few discussions, it has been decided that Farhan Akhtar who was paired with Sonam Kapoor in 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' would be the perfect choice for the role. “Farhan and Sonam's pairing was liked by people in the biopic. They arrived at a joint decision that Farhan would be ideal for the role. Rhea was very happy with the choice and currently they are finalising the deal with him. Official announcements will soon be made."
'Battle For Bittora' is the tale of two ambitious political families pitted against each other over their fight for power.
