Actor Sooraj Pancholi, who made his acting debut in 2015 with Salman Khan Films’ Hero, has not appeared in any film since then. Some recent reports claimed that the young actor was offered John Abraham’s next, but he turned it down.

John has bought the remake rights of Spanish film The Invisible Guest. While he himself is playing the main lead, there was another parallel lead for a younger actor. His team wanted to rope in Sooraj for the same.

According to reports, Sooraj did not take up the offer because of date issues. “As much as I would have loved to do the film, I cannot because I have given my dates to Prabhu (Dheva) sir’s film, which starts this November. They have not even approached me yet, but I know the director Lakshya. He was also an AD on Ek Tha Tiger like me. We are good friends and I know that the script is fantastic for the film.”

Actor Harshvardhan Rane was also being considered for the same role. Now, it seems the makers will have to knock on his doors once again.
