Yes, after a lot of question raising and rumours flying, the news has been confirmed now – John Abraham will star in the movie Jazba which will mark the comeback of Aishwarya Rai to the cine world.
The flick will be directed by Sanjay Gupta and is set to launch in January 2015. It was announced by Aishwarya herself at the Cannes Film Festival this year.
Jazba is to be an action thriller and John Abraham will play a role loosely based on notorious gangster Abu Salem, after his extradition to India. John is very excited about the film and is rumoured to have said yes immediately upon hearing the story.
The sensational hero has always wanted to star opposite Aishwarya. It was all set to happen in the movie Happy Birthday directed by Shriram Raghavan years ago but the movie somehow never materialised.
Hey well, here’s his chance now..
John is not the hero in Jazba though, no. Unfortunately the actor’s role in the flick is a small one but supposedly an important one nonetheless.
Sanjay Gupta will be in his established and acclaimed comfort zone with this film, as he is known for his gritty action packed creations like Kaante and Shootout at Lokhandwala. He will however, be making yet another movie before Jazba hits the floors and incidentally, that one will star John Abraham as well. This upcoming project has been titled Mumbai Saga.
In any case, Aishwarya’s return to the big screens is something the fans are thrilled about. And not to sound obvious, but the sheer glamour element of John and Aishwarya sharing screen space will be something worth looking forward to.
