“While Saif shot for the cameo in London last year, some touch up shots of his were remaining. That shoot was supposed to happen near to the post-production work. But, Khan he hurt his hand during the shoot of Kala Kandi, due to which the doctors have advised him rest. Hence, Saif cannot complete the shoot and Karan was left with no option but to replace him.”
Karan Johar didn’t have much of a choice and therefore turned to his good friend Shah Rukh Khan who happily agreed for the extended cameo. Though, nothing has been officially confirmed by KJo or his team, if this rumour is true King Khan alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Fawad Khan and Lisa Haydon, Anushka Sharma and Imran Abbas, will be seen on the sets of the film that is set to release in July, 2017.
