Imran Khan has been finalized as the younger lead in Rajkumar Hirani’s P.K. which also stars Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma. This will be the uncle and nephew’s first film together. Initially, Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh were approached for Imran’s role.
Reason why Ranbir had said NO to the film was because he is already working with Anushka Sharma in Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet.
Ranveer said NO to the film not because of Anushka Sharma but some other personal issues.
Buzz has it that it was Aamir Khan who suggested Imran’s name to Hirani and obviously, the dutiful nephew was not one to say no. However, Imran was also in search of a nice solid script and when this came his way, he jumped on it.
Filming will start after Aamir wraps Dhoom 3 and will release on December 25, 2013.
