JOHN ABRAHAM, SAIF ALI KHAN and ARJUN RAMPAL
After hot hunks John Abraham & Saif Ali Khan turned down the role of the father in Dharma productions' upcoming film, the remake of the Hollywood super hit flick STEPMOM, latest reports hint that macho Arjun Rampal, who has struggled his way up & finally caught the eye of critics & producers after ROCK ON & OM SHANTI OM, has no qualms about playing 'daddy' on screen, just as in real life to his two lovely girls.
This Karan Johar production which will be directed by debutante Siddharth Malhotra, has Kajol and Kareena Kapoor playing the leads. KJo once again brings together Kajol-Kareena jodi after KABHI KHUSHI KABHIE GHAM, which had struck gold eight years ago. Then they played siblings, but this time they are all set to play wives of the same husband, who it seems is finally zeroed in. Hope this daddy stays on!
Remember how every tinsel town actress from Twinkle Khanna to Urmila Matondkar refused to play the part of the mother of an eight-year old in KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI? The part eventually essayed by Rani Mukherji, catapulted her into the big league overnight. And all the actresses who'd refused the part bitterly regretted their decision. Don't they say history repeats itself?
