Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham formed a terrific ‘jodi’ in DOSTANA and it had seemed that this would be one pairing for the keeps. However with the sequel to the film being forever jinxed with talks of the whole idea being dropped, it had seemed that at least in Shahrukh Khan‘s HAPPY NEW YEAR they would be seen together. However as things stand, even that is not happening now.

”Abhishek and John belong to the same age bracket and both have bounced back with BOL BACHCHAN and HOUSEFULL 2. Even though DOSTANA sequel seems almost out of question now, there was silver lining in the form of HAPPY NEW YEAR. As per latest developments though, it is only Abhishek who is close to signing the film while John has not even been approached so far,” says a source.
Now this seems to be a far cry from the news that had floated around very recently when it was said that Farah Khan had finalised John for HAPPY NEW YEAR much before he flew off to Turkey for the shoot of RACE 2.
‘Leave aside finalising, there haven’t been any talks either,” the source continues, ”John being a part of the film is sheer speculation. He hasn’t even been narrated the script yet.”
Well, all we can do is remember the adage of ‘there is no smoke without fire’!
