Shah Rukh Khan's home production Billoo Barber, directed by Priyadarshan, has been in the news mainly for its changes in cast. With too many speculations doing the rounds, the superstar decided to set the facts straight.

According to SRK, the film is a sweet story of friendship–quite similar to the bond shared by Krishna and Sudama. Irrfan Khan plays the title role of Billoo Barber, while Shah Rukh will be seen in an important role in the film. Interestingly, a lot of names including Juhi Chawla, Ameesha Patel and Tabu were considered for the part of Irrfan's wife, but now Lara Dutta has been finalised for the role.

The film, which is a remake of a Malayalam film, focuses mainly on the life of Irrfan Khan, his wife and their two kids. The other cast members include Om Puri, Rajpal Yadav and Asrani.

Khan also added that apart from the main cast, the two hot-n-happening beauties of Bollywood, Kareena Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, will also be seen in guest appearances.

With such a cast coming together, Billoo Barber is surely one of the keenly anticipated films of this year.
