Did Fawad just replace Saif in Salman Khan’s next?


It seems like the Khoobsurat hearthrob, Fawad Khan, is giving Bollywood’s Chotay Nawab, Saif Ali Khan, tough competition.


According to the latest buzz, Fawad has replaced Saif in Salman Khan’s upcoming production, Jugalbandi that is expected to go on floors by July this year.

While this may be yet another jackpot in store for the Kapoor and Sons star, it is certainly bothersome for Saif, who hasn’t had been in a big hit sinceCocktail (2012).

If the news is true, the film will star Fawad as a London-based musician and will also feature Anil Kapoor as his instructor. Rumors also suggest that Jacqueline Fernandas has been approached to play the female lead in the film.

So much for ‘’I don’t have faith in Pakistan’’, Saif!
