Gautam Menon who made his directorial debut with Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein is now all set to remake the South super hit Kaakha Kaakha in Hindi with John Abraham. The director earlier approached Sunny Deol and Fardeen Khan for the lead role, before John gave his nod for the film, which will be produced by Vipul Shah.
“The film was announced in 2007, but after things didn’t materialise between Gautam and Sunny, it was put on a hold. Later, Firoz Khan bought the rights of the film and wanted to cast his son Fardeen in the lead role. After he expired, the film was shelved indefinitely, before John came to the rescue. The film will hit the floors later this year,” says a source.(DC)
