Saif Ali Khan and John Abraham are said to be competing for the same role in Shootout at Wadala.

The sequel to the 2007 hit Shootout at Lokhandwala focuses on the life of ’70s gangster Manya Surve.

A source told the Hindustan Times: “Both are muscular and well-built, which fits the profile of the character sketch we’re trying to create.”

Director Sanjay Gupta indicated that the casting of other real-life figures was as important as the lead.

“Other principle characters are as important, like Isaque Bhagwan, who carried out the encounter. He’s as important as Sanjay Dutt’s ACP Khan was in Shootout At Lokhandwala,” said Gupta.

The first part in the series featured Vivek Oberoi in the lead role.

Filming on the project is expected to commence by the end of the year
