Earlier, there were reports that Salman Khan was the first choice for the lead role of a dwarf in the film, but after he backed off due to time constraints, Shah Rukh replaced Salman for the role.

While there have been a lot of speculations regarding the cast of Anand L Rai's next film, the director few days ago clarified that he is yet to finalise the cast.

"I am really amused by the rumours, since people seem to know more about my film than I do. I am still working on the script and funnily enough, several have already started speculating about the cast and the title. I request people to stop jumping to conclusions and allow me to make an official announcement on the film, which we will make as soon as we finalise all the details," Pinkvilla quoted the director as saying earlier.
