Earlier we had reported that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan would soon be seen making her comeback with the Sanjay Gupta film Jazbaa. While Aishwarya had been confirmed for the film, the rest of the cast was yet to be finalized. Now we hear that John Abraham has been cast opposite Aishwarya in the film.
Confirming the development, Sanjay Gupta says, “Yes we have roped in John for the film. However, I cannot comment on it right now.” Apparently, the role John will be playing in the film has been modeled on gangster Abu Salem after he was extradited to India. However, despite the character being crucial to the film, John’s role may not be very big in Jazbaa.
Jazbaa, which is said to be an action drama, will feature Aishwarya as the main lead, alongside John. However, more details of the cast members are yet to be finalized. Jazbaa is expected to go on floor in early 2015.
