Arjun Kapoor’s India’s Most Wanted has caught everyone’s attention. The story about 5 regular joes going all out to catch the most wanted terrorist is really inspiring. In fact, Arjun’s performance looks quite promising. But did you know he was not the first choice for India’s Most Wanted? Yes, not Arjun Kapoor, but Sidharth Malhotra was considered for the role first.
In fact, Raj Kumar Gupta had planned to shoot India’s Most Wanted with Sidharth Malhotra prior to Raid. But with Nepal, where the major part was to be shot, being flooded in 2017, they had to postpone it. Sidharth was still on board, but sometime later the cast change due to reasons unknown. In mid-2018, Arjun Kapoor was named as the protagonist of India’s Most Wanted. Whether A Gentleman, Aiyaary and Ittefaq‘s poor performance made the makers wary of having Sidharth Malhotra on board or if it was date issues, we don’t know. But Arjun Kapoor replaced him in the movie.
