Found an interview of Anurag Kashyap and the making of 'Black Friday'. Just pasting the relevant part here.....
We got some..others we didn't..Naseer dropped out because he did not want to play a muslim terrorist ..it was a very sensitive time then..Gujrat was burning..and you know how in times like that anybody could have stood up and said anything..Its a funny country..same reason why Irrfan dropped out..Irrfan said he had no issues to play Rakesh Maria..that put us into a sticky situation..the finance was raised by selling these three actors together for the first time..the financiers were pressurising us to interchange the casting of badshah khan and rakesh maria..they also told me i had a KK bias..i tried to show them how KK had a close resemblance to Rakesh Maria..when pressure got too much..i put my foot down..AM stood by me..we got away..
Now if not Irrfan then who for Badshah khan..i immediately thought of Aditya srivastava..but i had to show them why i thought so..i hesitantly requested Aditya to audition for Badshah..he had no problems, and was very sporting..sometimes it gets embarrassing..an actor you have worked with and appreciated twice before, you ask him to audition..he rocked..i knew it..now we had to look for dangle..we thought of kishore kadam..i don't remember who thought of him but what a choice..we still asked him to audition and he did..I think it was Rajkumar who suggested Pavan..Pavan and RK worked together on a bestseller on star plus called VIKRUT..it was a stunning show with a stunning performance..we went to meet pavan in versova..i told him what film we were attempting to do..i gave him the script and i asked him would he audition for the film..he looked at me and said , "If i like the script,I will audition."
