Aishwarya Rai Bachchan To Work With John Abraham

It’s official. John Abraham will star in Sanjay Gupta’s film Jazba, starring Aishwarya Rai.
John’s role is modelled on gangster Abu Salem after he was extradited to India. A source close to the film says, “John is very happy to work with Aishwarya. He loved the role and immediately said yes.”

The rest of the cast is yet to be finalised. Gupta starts shooting the action-packed thriller from January 2015. Aishwarya was last seen onscreen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish in 2010. Known for directing entertainers like Kaante and the Shootout At Lokhandwala, Gupta is collaborating with Aishwarya for the first time.

Jazba will be John’s fifth film with Gupta after Zinda, Shootout at Lokhandwala, Shootout at Wadala and Gupta’s next-in-line Mumbai Saga. Added the source, “John’s role may not be very big in Jazba but it is a significant part of the story.”
