John-Abhishek to recreate dostana in ‘Kaante 2’
John Abraham and Abhishek Bachhan created a memorable chemistry in ‘Dostana’. Their male bonding has been appreciated by the audience and both the guys at the same time enjoyed working opposite each other. Since talk for the sequel to ‘Dostana’ was doing for quite sometime, John and Abhishek did not sign any film together but as till date, ‘Dostana 2’ has not been decided, the duo without waiting long signed ‘Kaante 2’.
They will share screen space with Arjun Rampal and Bobby Deol. A source reveals, “Abhishek and John’s great chemistry in Dostana earned them a lot of fans. Both actors are very fond of each other.
They were looking forward to work again in the second edition of the film and consequently didn’t sign any other movies. But since Dostana 2 isn’t probably happening, they have decided to stop waiting for it.
They always wanted to do another franchise and Kaante 2 fitted the bill perfectly. They have heard the script and given their consent but the official announcement is yet to be made.”
The film will be directed by Hollywood director of Mask and The Scorpion King, Chuck Russel.
The source adds, “The film is directed by a Hollywood director of Mask and The Scorpion King, Chuck Russel and will be shot in South Africa.”
Producer Shabbir Boxwala informs, “The film is in a very raw stage. We are planning to put it together. According to paper work Raju Patel holds the rights. Since he is no more, I am planning to make the sequel with his younger brother Uru patel.”
About casting he says, “We have not approached Abhishek and John. Arjun and Bobby are my dear friends, so I had a casual chat with them. But we haven’t approached anyone officially.”
He confirms about the Hollywood director. “Russel was a dear friend of Raju Patel and was always interested in making a Bollywood film. We are in talks with him. Since he is a big name we will surely have a fancy star cast in the film.”
