An insider says, "Vikram is under active consideration. In fact, the makers are in talks with him since he fits the bill perfectly."
On the other hand, a source close to the project neither confirms nor denies the news, saying: "As the film is set in Haryana, we are looking for someone who hails from that state and knows the local language. We are in talks with a lot of people who have been shortlisted. Once things are finalised, we will make an official announcement."
