Madhur Bhandarkar Reacts To Rumors About Casting Shah Rukh In His Film

In a conversation with Indian Express, Bollywood filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar confirmed that he is done with the script of his upcoming film Inspector Ghalib, however, he is still working on the casting, he stated that the casting process was delayed since he has been working on his film, Babli Bouncer and so he couldn’t get the time to decide the cast for his upcoming film.

Talking about the delay Madhur Bhandarkar said, “Right now, the film’s script is definitely there. But I have still not revisited it because I was busy with India Lockdown and Babli Bouncer. Now when I get these two movies released this year, I will then revisit it again and see (how it goes).”

Talking about the character Ghalib, Madhur Bhandarkar said, “I have two scripts ready, including this. From 2018-2019, I was working on three scripts, but suddenly the lockdown happened. Now I will revisit in the coming year, let me see who my Ghalib will be. He is a very flamboyant, one-liner-spouting humorous character. At the same time, it has a very elaborate action, which adds a different dynamic to the film. It is a completely different shift for me also. After watching the trailer of Babli Bouncer, I was told, ‘Oh you made a film like this,’ so I don’t know what will happen after Ghalib,”
