The former Bigg Boss contestant’s Bollywood comeback seems to have hit a rough patch
Rumour had it that Armaan Kohli was to star as Salman Khan’s brother in Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. However, it looks like those were just rumours as now we hear that Mr Kohli was never offered this project. Apparently, Bollywood’s own naukri.com (Salman Khan) had suggested to Barjatya that Armaan be included in the project. But it seems that the filmmaker didn’t pay any heed to Sallu’s request at all.
“Salman did suggest that Armaan be included in the film, but there was nothing beyond that. Some overzealous people went ahead and announced that Armaan was essaying the role of Sallu’s brother in the film,” a source was quoted by a tabloid.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo will go on floors in May and the cast includes Salman along with Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Anupam Kher, Swara Bhaskar, Deepak Dobriyal and Samira Rao. Yes, the official star cast doesn’t include Mr Kohli’s name in it. “Sooraj Barjatya did not approach him for any role. Armaan has not even spoken to anyone at the production house. He only knew that Salman had recommended his name. He was taken aback when the news came out,” a source close to Armaan said.
As you will know, Armaan doesn’t have a Bollywood career to boast about. Having all flop films in his resume, the man surely needed a good comeback to look at a fresh lease of life in B-Town. And there is no denying that a movie with Sallu would have done wonders for him. But looks like the lady luck (Tanishaa Mukherji) is not proving to be so lucky for Mr Kohli.
