Multiple reports previously suggested that Tiger was paired opposite actress Sara Ali Khan, making it the actors’ first collaboration, for the movie.However a reliable source close to the development shares that Sara has been replaced by Disha, after the former walked out of the movie due to dates issues.
Confirming the news with us director Jagan Shakti told BT, “Disha is the fittest and apt to do action. Sara was definitely a part of it but unfortunately, we couldn’t match the dates.”

Hero No 1 would also have actor Pashmina Roshan playing one of the parallel leads. Although titled after the 1997’s hit namesake movie by David Dhawan, the Jagan Shakti’s directorial is not a remake of the Govinda starrer.
Coming to Tiger and Disha, the two have been cordial after their widely reported breakup that appeared last year. Tiger is currently seeing Deesha Dhanuka, who happens to be an employee in the same production house (Pooja Entertainment) helming Hero no 1.
We reached out to Tiger, Disha and the film’s producer Jackky Bhagnani for a comment, but they remained mum till the we went to the press.
