Now, the grapevine suggests that Amitabh Bachchan will also play a prominent role in the film.
According to Filmfare, Amitabh will play the role of a musical guru in the film, while Fawad will play his pupil, or shishya. The film will revolve around this student-teacher relationship.
It is said that Salman Khan is yet to finalise a female lead or director of the film.
Fawad is yet to confirm or deny his involvement in Jugalbandi – in an earlier interview, he said he’s in talks with several producers and has yet to officially sign on to a film. But one musical role for the star is confirmed in Pakistan, that is, Albela Rahi, a biopic in which he will star as pop sensation Alamgir.
