Ranveer Singh was the original choice of the wild and extreme KC is Bijoy Nambiar’s Shaitan…
However, the Band Baaja Baraat actor opted out due to the boldness of the character and only then did Gulshan Devaiah stepped in.
A source from the crew reveals, “Ranveer was like any other struggling actor at that time. He hadn’t signed BBB then.
He was one of the first guys auditioned and selected for the role. Bejoy immediately decided to cast him. He loved the energy and spontaneity RS brought in front of the camera.”
The source adds, “Ranveer loved the part and agreed to do it. However, he chickened out later on as his character was supposed to be introduced in the movie in a sexually explicit scene. The actor told Nambiar he wouldn’t be comfortable debuting with such a bold scene. His family also had their reservations against the role.”
The scene was later changed and the film’s salaciousness was toned down a bit.
The source further adds, “Though it was a risky call but I am glad that Ranveer took it because it worked in his favour.
Everyone has his or her own dos and don’ts. Ranveer comes from a conservative family. Moreover, he wanted to do a solo hero film. He then waited for the right film to come his way and made a great start with BBB.”
