    Earlier this month, Bollywood’s Bhaijaan Salman Khan took his next and much awaited film Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali on floors in Mumbai. He shared the news on his official social media handle along with the first look, which left fans in awe. His actor brother-in-law Aayush Sharma, who was playing the role of his brother in the film, had also begun shooting. However, he recently walked out of the project due to creative differences. Soon it was reported that Salman’s other on-screen brother Zaheer Iqbal has also opted out of the film.

    Rumors began doing the rounds about Abhimanyu Dassani and Meezaan Jaaferi joining the cast. However, a report shared by Pinkvilla now reveals that Jassie Gill and Siddharth Nigam have been roped in to replace Aayush and Zaheer. A source was quoted saying, “Salman, Farhad and the entire team were on the lookout for actors with some comic timing and after extensive search have zeroed in on Jassie Gill, Siddharth Nigam and Raghav to play the three brothers. The trio will join Salman at a set in Mumbai today.”

    Raghav Juyal will be seen as Salman’s third brother in the film whereas Pooja Hegde is portraying the role of the superstar’s love interest and the female lead. Meanwhile, Bigg Boss 13 fame Shehnaaz Gill who was last seen in Diljit Dosanjh’s Honsla Rakh, will be making her big Bollywood debut with Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. She will be playing a pivotal role in the Farhad Samji directorial. Well, so many changes in the star cast may result in the release date being pushed but fans can expect an official announcement soon. Let’s see what happens!
