In all likelihood, Juhi Chawla will replace Amisha Patel after the latter walked out of Priyadarshan's Billo Barber.
Produced by Shah Rukh Khan under the Red Chillies Entertainment banner, Billo Barber is rumoured to be the story of Lord Krishna and his best friend Sudama. Shah Rukh will play
Amisha was offered a small but vital role as Irrfan's wife in the film. But she opted out because she felt the role was too insignificant.
In Priyadarshan's earlier film, Bhool Bhulaiyaa, Amisha had a small but important role as well. But this time, it looks like the actress wanted better.
Left with no heroine, it is learnt that SRK has requested his good friend Juhi to step in.
Shah Rukh and Juhi have been close friends since 1992's Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, when Juhi was a star and Shah Rukh, a relative newcomer. They had also formed their production company, Dreamz Unlimited, which made the flop, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani.
The last time SRK and Juhi were seen together in a film was Paheli, also produced by Red Chillies.
