All those speculations about who’s starring ooposite John Abraham in the Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster ‘Kaakha Kaakha’ can finally end. The hunt has finally ended with the casting of Genelia D’Souza.
Producer Vipul Shah, director Nishikant Kamat and John have had a rollercoaster ride when it comes to the leading lady of this movie. First Asin was signed. But then she chose to give her dates to the Salman Khan starrer ‘Ready’.
Desperate for a leading lady, Vipul Shah’s spirits soared once again when his ‘Namastey London’ heroine Katrina Kaif was suddenly available after the shooting of ‘Dostana 2’ got postponed. But she chose a Yashraj film with Imran Khan next instead.
It came to a point that the team was ready to shoot without a heroine.
Luckily Genelia d’Souza has now stepped in. Lately, things have not been moving too smoothly for the perky ‘Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na’ actress.
John and Genelia got to know each other during the cellphone advertisement they did together. And it was only a matter of time before a movie materialised.
The shooting of the untitled Hindi version of ‘Kaakha Kaakha’ began recently. Vipul Shah confirmed the last-minute casting of Genelia.
"Yes, she’s the girl opposite John. We’re in the process of signing papers even as we speak," he said.(IANS)
