Reveals a source, "Rohit had recently approached Mr Bachchan and they are currently in talks. He is seriously considering taking it up, but one has to wait for an official announcement to be made later this week."

Earlier, it was reported that Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt have also been signed for the multi-starrer.

Ranveer Singh's name is also doing the rounds, but there was no confirmation from the actor's side.

Many more big names are expected to come on board, says a source close to the project.

"Since things are in the discussion stage, the makers are tight-lipped. Giving out any further names at this moment will be pure conjecture," adds the source.

Both Rohit and Big B were not available for comment.

However, a source close to the superstar says, "I am not aware of any such development."
