Produced by Shah Rukh Khan [ Images ] under the Red Chillies Entertainment banner, Billo Barber is rumoured to be the story of Lord Krishna and his best friend Sudama. Shah Rukh will play Krishna whereas Irrfan Khan [ Images ] will play Sudama. But the film is set in modern times.
Amisha was offered a small but vital role as Irrfan's wife in the film. But she opted out because she felt the role was too insignificant.

In Priyadarshan's earlier film, Bhool Bhulaiyaa, Amisha had a small but important role as well. But this time, it looks like the actress wanted better.
Left with no heroine, it is learnt that SRK [ Images ] has requested his good friend Juhi to step in.
Shah Rukh and Juhi have been close friends since 1992's Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, when Juhi was a star and Shah Rukh, a relative newcomer. They had also formed their production company, Dreamz Unlimited, which made the flop, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani.
The last time SRK and Juhi were seen together in a film was Paheli [ Images ], also produced by Red Chillies.
