The part will be finalised after a look test,” a source told the MM.Rumour has it that Jodha Akbar (TV show) actor Rajat Tokas has been approached to play SRK’s role, while Rahul Raichand and Varun Sood have been shortlisted for Hrithik Roshan’s part.
The show is titled Dil Hi Toh Hai and will reportedly go on air in two months’ time.
