Earlier, Jacqueline Fernandez was approached to play one of the leads in the film, but she turned down the offer as she was busy with other projects. That's when Esha Gupta came on board.
A leading daily had reported that, the two leads of the film, John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan, will both be called 'Raju' in the film. Since John has a double role in the film, he is called 'Raju Duplicate'. The duo were last seen together in 'Dostana', in 2008. Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty will return in this film, as Baburao Ganpatrao Apte and Shyam, respectively.
The source further adds, "While, Esha Gupta is part of the project, many girls have auditioned for the film and the makers are still looking for one more actress."
