Now who is going to portray the role of Vikas Dubey? This question is floating on the internet. Some of the audience members are finding actor Abhimanyu Singh who worked in films like Gulaal and Rakta Charitra suitable for this role.
Abhimanyu is a very capable actor but he never got a chance to showcase his full potential in a Hindi project. If he bag this role, he can definitely mark his presence in the industry with this character.
