Happy Bhaag Jayegi: Before Abhay Deol, THIS actor was the choice of makers
The trailer of upcoming rom-com movie ‘Happy Bhaag Jaayegi’ has got rave reviews from cine buffs. Starring Diana Penty, Abhay Deol, Jimmy Shergill and Ali Fazal then movie is about runaway bride who lands in Pakistan.
While the cross border quirky movie has gained a lot of attention, little did anyone know that Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan was about to be cast for the role of Abhay.
Asked if they were contemplating to cast Fawad, producer Krishika Lulla told IANS:
"We were contemplating it, but it was a long back. Yes, we did think of him but at that time Fawad was doing something else and his dates were not there."
Eventually then, Abhay "loved the script", she says.

"He is very choosy about his projects. It's the content that got Abhay and Diana Penty together for the film and we have Pakistani actors also. It was a good experience,"
Abhay will be seen in the film as Bilal, a Pakistani man.
Lulla also feels that while many cross-border films are hard-hitting, "Happy Bhag Jayegi" will be light-hearted.
"It's a different kind of film. We are also coming at the right time. After 'Rustom' and 'Mohenjo Daro', this will be a refreshing light-hearted film."
"Happy Bhag Jayegi" is written and directed by Mudassar Aziz and will release on August 19.
