Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan in the race to play Lord Krishna?

Busy schedules and back-to-back movies are keeping Akshay Kumar so busy that he wants someone to replace him in his home production Oh My God. What’s the role? Akshay was supposed to play Lord Krishna, but now he and director Ashvini Yardi are keen to rope in either Shahrukh Khan or Salman Khan to play the God in the film.

The film is a screen adaptation of Paresh Rawal’s Hindi play Krishna vs Kanhaiya and the writers now plan to twist the role of the main protagonist, who will play Krishna, depending on who signs on for the part. According to the source,

Till Akshay was playing the role, they were sure what they wanted. But now since that has changed, the director is more than willing to change the script to suit the star.

Both Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan are friends of Ashvini, and anyone could be on board. But then, don’t both the Khans have movies lined up this year? Shahrukh is shooting for Yashraj’s untitled film till October, and soon after will start working on Rohit Shetty’s film Chennai Express.

Salman Khan, on the other hand, has Dabangg 2 on his mind. The star will start shooting for the film next week, and it’s said that he will be busy with his other home productions after that.

So, under these circumstances, it’s yet to be seen who will play the God in Oh My God. Director Ashvin Yardi says, she is working on the cast.

But we are just curious to know from you, who do you think will suit the role of a God. Shahrukh Khan or Salman Khan?
