"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," Madhavan tweeted.

The movie, directed by Rohit and produced by Dharma Productions, features Ranveer Singh in the lead role of cop Sangram Bhalerao. Sara Ali Khan was recently roped in to play the female lead.
