Vivek or Abhishek to replace Hrithik?

Ace designer Manish Malhotra is still vacillating whether to cast Abhishek Bachchan or Vivek Oberoi in one of the pivotal roles in his directorial debut [Manish had approached Hrithik Roshan for the role in question]. That’s the buzz on the film. But is it true? Nope, it’s not, Manish tells me. So what’s the truth? The truth is that I had spoken to Vivek quite some time back. But none of the actors have officially been signed so far. The reason being, I am launching my label in various cities and only after I am through with it will I think of starting my film, he divulges. Manish has launched his label in Mumbai, Chennai and Bangalore. And in days to come, the designer is planning to launch it in Delhi, Hyderabad and Dubai. Let me consolidate this first, he smiles. Coming back to his film, Manish admits that he has also spoken to Akshay Kumar, Shahid Kapoor and Tusshar Kapoor for the three [out of four] pivotal roles [this writer was the first to break the news]. But, I repeat, none of them have been signed on the dotted line yet, he clarifies. As for the choice between Abhishek and Vivek [to step into Hrithik’s shoes], Manish does express surprise at the speculation. Abhishek isn’t in the picture at all. I haven’t even approached him, he clarifies. So, will the final star cast be Akshay, Vivek, Shahid and Tusshar? Let’s await the official announcement!
