However, owing to his shoulder injury, he could not take up the role.
Here's what Madhavan wrote on Twitter
Hey folks .. So I am a huge crazy fan of Rohit Shetty and his films. As is my son. It breaks both our hearts that I’m not able to be a part of this film because of my injury. I’m well on my way to recovery but this is a huge opportunity and excitement lost.🙈🙈 https://t.co/9YJBctaCJI— Ranganathan Madhavan (@ActorMadhavan) March 25, 2018
