Last year, Kabir Singh producer Murad Khetani had announced his next project will be the remake of Tamil action-thriller, Thadam. The movie was said to star Sidharth Malhotra and Mrunal Thakur in the lead roles and it was supposed to go on floors in November last year. But, looks like there has been a major change in the cast as Sidharth has opted out of the movie and Aditya Roy Kapur has come onboard. If the latest reports are to be believed, Sidharth had expressed his reservations on the new screenplay and bowed out politely.

According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, a source revealed, “Aditya Roy Kapur has been locked in to play the hero now. It’s an action packed film which will have in double roles. This will also be Aditya’s first double role ever. When Sid opted out, they were on the lookout for a good looking hero who’s fantastic with action. Apart from Adi, Mrunal remains part of the cast.”
