Soni Razdan’s upcoming film ‘Love Affair’ will now star Ali Fazal instead of ‘Roy’ actor Arjun Rampal. While earlier Arjun Rampal was roped in for the film, ‘Khamoshiyaan’ actor Ali Fazal will now be playing the role.
Confirming this news, Ali says, “Yes I have been approached for the part in what I call the wee hours of the movie’s commencement, to replace Mr Arjun Rampal due to some issues. I read the part and said yes immediately, it’s a challenging role, so I am still waking from the reality of it. And I am already immersed in the looks and costumes of the film because there is very little time to prepare.”
The film starring Kalki Koechlin, Gulshan Devaiah and Monica Dogra, deals with infidelity in marriage. Ali will be playing Kalki’s husband, whereas Gulshan will play Kalki’s lover in the film. Monica Dogra will be seen as Ali’s sister. ‘Love Affair’ is loosely based on a real life case which took place in the year 1959.
