Rohan Sippy Explains Why He Couldn't Cast Abhishek Bachchan In 'Nautanki Saala!'

Rohan Sippy, who is ready with his directorial next Nautanki Saala!, has not cast Abhishek Bachchan as the leading man, this time around. Rohan and Abhishek have worked together in Kuch Naa Kaho, Bluff Master and Dum Maaro Dum together. At the trailer launch of the film, when asked if it was difficult leaving Abhishek out for this project, Rohan said, "I know Abhishek was busy with a couple of big films. The first person I went to after writing this film is Abhishek. He said that he will only allow me to make this film if I let him do a special appearance. As for taking Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunaal Roy Kapur, I guess it was a case of horses for courses."

Nautanki Saala!, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Pooja Salvi, Gaelyn Mendonca, Evelyn Sharma and Sanjeev Bhatt, is directed by Rohan Sippy and is set to release on April 12, 2013.
