For several reasons, Salman Khan's forthcoming action comedy, helmed by Farhad Samji, has been in the headlines for quite some time. However, it appears that the crew has finally acquired an amazing cast of actors. After casting Venkatesh in the movie, Jagapathi Babu has been reportedly casted for Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali.

Salman is filming a pan-India movie and is trying above and beyond in terms of casting. He sat down with his crew and hand-picked his favourite actors. Pooja Hegde was the first to be cast in the film, accompanied by his good friend Venkatesh. Salman has brought on another Telugu actor, Jagapathi Babu, from a source close to the actor, according to Bollywood Hungama.

For those uninformed, Jagapathi Babu was slated to direct Dabangg 3 for Salman, but plans fell through due to scheduling conflicts. And when Salman gave him this part, he immediately accepted. The team wanted a perfect villain in the movie to fight Salman and Venkatesh, and no one could do it better than Jagapathi,the source went on to say.

In June, Jagapathi Babu will accompany Salman for the movie's Hyderabad shoot. Salman, Pooja Hegde, Venkatesh, Jagapathi Babu, Shehnaaz Gill, Jassie Gill, Raghav, Siddharth Nigam, and Malvika Sharma complete the extensive cast of this Farhad Samji film. According to Bollywood Hungama, Aayush Sharma pulled out of the project due to conceptual disagreements.

More humorous performers from the Bollywood and Telugu cinema industries are also in discussions to join Salman in this action comedy.

The film's title and director are anticipated to be revealed soon, and according to an insider, it will be released on December 30 this year.
