Farah Khan, who is working solemnly on her next project ‘Happy New Year’, seems to be planning on a killer casting coup of sorts for the movie.
The director, who has already roped in the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and Boman Irani, is now planning on signing John Abraham to complete the male quartet.
If the reports are to be believed then the director has already signed John for the movie.
“Farah wanted someone with a very cool body language for the fourth male lead. She had been toying with the idea of casting John for a long time. The deal was sealed a few days before John flew off to Turkey to shoot for ‘Race 2’,” said a close friend of the actor to a daily.
John Abraham, on his part, is happy to be part of the project and share screen with King Khan and very good friend Abhishek Bachchan.
“He is very happy he will be working with Shah Rukh for the first time. And he is excited he will share screen space with Abhishek, with whom he enjoyed great camaraderie during the making of ‘Dostana’ and has been good friends with ever since,” the source said.
The source said that Shah Rukh Khan too had no problem sharing screen space with Abhishek and John and is in fact eagerly looking forward for the movie’s shooting to begin.
The female cast of the movie has not yet been decided on.
