It has already been reported that Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming film, P.K. is a two-hero project. While Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma have already signed the big-ticket venture, speculations have been rife about who would play the parallel lead in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s production.
Although several names such as Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Imran Khan have been doing the rounds, it’s television actor Sushant Singh Rajput (famous for playing Manav in Zee TV’s hit serial Pavitra Rishta) who has managed to bag the role.
“Sushant is finalised to star alongside Aamir. Raju and Vidhu sir felt that Sushant fits the part in terms of looks as well as talent,” says a source.
Although it has been reported that Ranveer was a strong contender for the role, the actor — on being contacted — denied that he was even approached for it.
