In a quick turn of events, Abhishek Bachchan, who was no longer part of J P Dutta's Paltan has been replaced by Sanam Teri Kasam actor Harshvardhan Rane!
The makers have confirmed that actor has replaced Jr Bachcahn in the war drama directed by the veteran filmmaker.
A source revealed, " While Abhishek was cast in JP Dutta's Paltan , he will no longer be part of the film. Abhishek has now been replaced by Harshvardhan Rane , who already has a massive fan following despite being just a film old in Bollywood."
Apparently, makers were looking for a tall actor ,who not only had great screen presence but was also physically fit ."The role is as challenging as it is physically demanding and after Abhishek, Harshvardhan Rane was the perfect fit. JP Dutta was impressed his work in his Bollywood debut Sanam Teri Kasam," added the source.
It seems, South sensation Harsh, who normally maintains a low profile, is definitely an actor to watch out for, especially since he will now be rubbing shoulders with industry stalwarts in the war drama!
Nidhi Dutta of JP Films says, “Yes, we have signed Harshvardhan Rane for PALTAN but it’s too early to divulge anything about the movie or his role."
Produced by JP Films and directed by JP Dutta, PALTAN is scheduled for a summer 2018 release.
