“Heropanti” star Tiger Shroff has not been roped in for the remake of the hit 1993 action-thriller “Khalnayak”, says producer Subhash Ghai.
There had been a lot of buzz around the film ever since Ghai first announced it in 2013.
There were reports about director Sanjay Leela Bhansali acquiring the remake rights and planning to cast Ranveer Singh, but he eventually dropped it.
