Ali Zafar will now play the role of Bade bhai of Shahid Kapoor in the new Tamil remake called “Vettai”. The actual role was held by Madhuan, but due to some conditions, he was not able to play this role.
When director N. Linguswamy was asked about this, he quipped “Madhavan is out of the country for three months (getting his knees treated). We can’t wait. Shahid Kapoor has been finalized to play the younger brother. We’re going ahead with Ali Zafar for the other hero’s role.”
Director chose Ali because of his exceptional performance as Bada bhai in “Mere brother ki dulhan”. Furthermore the leading actresses haven’t been finalized yet.
