Ali Zafar Replaces Ritesh Deshmukh from Yash Raj film

After walkout of Ritesh Deshmukh from Aditya Chopra’s next flick, any guesses who has replaced him. He is Tere Bin Laden’s well-known actor, Ali Zafar in Yash Raj Film’s next. Imran Khan and Katrina Kaif are also part of the project.

Apparently, the role was initially offered to Ritesh Deshmukh, but he declined the role. A source said,

“Aditya Chopra loved Tere Bin Laden. YRF is known to spot talented newcomers. They are also giving director Ali Abbas Zafar his first break in this film. And as far as the actor Ali Zafar is concerned, the production house may sign him for at least three films.”

The spokesperson of Yash Raj Films also confirmed the news,

“Ali has been confirmed for a leading part in the movie along with Imran and Katrina. In principle and as a matter of decorum, YRF wouldn’t like to discuss any other options that may or may not have been approached. We are also in the process of finalising a girl opposite Ali.”

That’s true if someone’s lost is someone’s gain in the industry. That’s what happened with Ali Zafar.
