Arjun's loss is Kunal's gain! After Arjun Rampal managed to miff the producers of Don 2 with his exorbitant fee, Rang de Basanti actor Kunal Kapoor has been roped in to replace Rampal.
Kunal Kapoor will play the role of Jasjeet in the remake of Don.
Kunal Kapoor confirmed the news and said that he was very excited about the role and sharing screen space with Shah Rukh Khan. "I am very excited about being a part of a huge franchise like Don. And the fact that I get to share screen space with SRK makes it twice as exciting," Kunal told Mumbai Mirror.
But producer Ritesh Sidhwani has denied Kunal will be replacing Arjun Rampal.
"Kunal hasn’t replaced Arjun in the film. There is no Jasjeet in the film," Sidhwani told the tabloid.
Buzz is that three new characters have been intoduced in the film. Kunal Kapoor will play one while Lara Dutta will play the second part.
Adding twist to the tale Sidhwani said, "From the original cast we have Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani and Om Puri. When did we say that Arjun was part of Don 2?"
We wonder what Arjun has to say to this!
