Salman Khan, who was earlier finalised for the role, tweeted to congratulate Varun Dhawan:

Varun thanked Salman for this gesture and said that he’ll make him proud.

Varun later thanked Karan Johar and Karan Malhotra for making him a part of the grand movie.

And then Varun changed his display picture to one where he is posing with Salman.

All this makes one think that, in all probability, it can be only Salman who might have suggested Varun’s name for the coveted role. Alia’s inclusion came for she shares a good chemistry with Varun.

He is confident that Varun can carry off the challenging part (of the male lead). And both the Karans were more than happy to sign Varun for the film.”
