The film Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali, starring Salman Khan, is one of the most anticipated films of the year. The film, on the other hand, is making news for all the wrong reasons. Arshad Warsi and Shreyas Talpade have been rumoured to be dropped from the film, but is this true? Both actors now speak for the first time.
According to reports, the film will be directed by Farhad Samji and would be released around Dabangg Khan’s birthday in December. Arshad and Shreyas, who starred in Golmaal, are alleged to have been replaced in the film by Zaheer Iqbal and Aayush Sharma.
Reacting to this report, Arshad Warsi said to Bollywood Life, “Your information is wrong, I was never asked to do Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali in the first place.” The actor even thanked the publication for connecting with him to put an end to all the rumours.
Shreyas Talpade also spoke about the rumours of him being replaced in Salman Khan’s film Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. He said, “I don’t want to talk about it, Farhad is a very dear friend and I just want him to make a kickass film with or without me.”
Previously, News 18 report also debunked the rumours about Zaheer Iqbal and Aayush Sharma replacing the Golmaal stars in Salman’s film, citing a source, “Aayush and Zaheer have always been a part of the film and have not replaced anyone. The superstar who launched Zaheer with Notebook (2019) and brother-in-law Aayush with Loveratri (2018) had recommended their name when the film was announced and the production house had agreed to it.”
The source also said, “In fact, Sooraj Pancholi who was also launched by Salman with Hero (2015) is also being considered for a role in the film. The trio who have small but crucial roles will be seen as three friends who cross paths with Salman’s character and end up helping him.”
