Now, it will exciting to see who will take up this role in Hum Paanch.

A trade source revealed to Pinkvilla, “Both Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan have been approached for Rohit Shetty and Farah Khan’s Hum Paanch. While Salman has been hearing quite a few script narrations, Ajay was apparently approached almost a couple of weeks ago.”
