not
the
first
alternative
to
play
the
character

in
the
movie.
He
stated
that
the
makers
have been
initially
hoping
to
forged
Oscar-nominated
actor
Riz
Ahmed
in
the
movie
after
getting
floored
by
his
efficiency
in
Dan
Gilroy’s

Movie
Companion
quoted
the
screenwriter
as
saying,
“We
additionally
dabbled
with
the
concept
of
Riz
Ahmed
at
one
level
of
time.
We
by no means
thought
of
a
Bollywood
actor
for
that
position
(Tommy
Singh).
We
thought,
why
do not
we
go
for
a
British-South
Asian
character?
As a result of
we
actually
wished
that
complete
London
factor
in
it.
And
Riz
is
a
nice
actor.”

He
additional
added,
“And
I
keep in mind
strolling
out
of

Nightcrawler


he
had
a
small-ish
half
in
that
movie.
He
wasn’t
that
massive
a
star,
so
we
weren’t
being
that
unrealistic
and
silly
about
it.
I
keep in mind
calling
Abhishek
and
saying,
‘Yaar,
aap
please
image
dekho,
he is
excellent
and
he
can
actually
match
Tommy’s
half.’
Needs
can
be
horses
when
you are
casting.”

Finally,
the
position
fell
in
Shahid
Kapoor’s
lap
and
the
actor
obtained
rave
opinions
for
his
portrayal
of
a
drug
addict
rockstar
in
the
movie.

Earlier
in
an
interview,
the

Kabir
Singh

actor
had
revealed
that
Tommy
Singh
was

scariest
character
he
has
ever
performed
on

“Tommy
Singh
is
the
scariest
character
that
I
have
ever
performed
as a result of
I
do not
even
drink
alcohol,
so
I
do not
even
know
what
it
likes
to
be
excessive.
So,
I
actually
have
no
concept
what
any person
is
going
by.
I
had
no
concept
how
I
am
going
to
do
it.
However
I
felt
like
it
was
a
problem
that
I
wanted
to
take
up,”
an
Indian
Specific
report
had
quoted
him

saying.

At present,

remake
of
Nani’s

movie
by
the
similar
title.
