Mumbai: John Abraham might not have delivered any hit film this year, but that doesn’t stop the actor from acting pricey! The high-nosed hunk, who is yet to establish a strong foot hold in Bollywood, is snubbing pretty actresses and breathing fire over directors with his snobbish demands these days. Buzz has it that the actor recently refused to work with talented lass Asin in Vipul Shah’s Hindi remake of Telugu film, ‘Kaakha Kaakha’.
And that’s not all, the actor reportedly asked for a sexier looking actress for the role and suggested the name of Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor and his lady love Bipasha Basu for the role.
Confirming the news, a source said, “Vipul Shah was very keen to have Asin as the lead actress of the film. She and Venkatesh were the lead pair in the Telugu original. Vipul was also impressed by Asin’s performance in London Dreams and hence spoke to her about his forthcoming venture. But on suggesting the same to John, he was shocked as the actor refused to be paired opposite Asin. John thinks that Asin doesn’t suit the role and prefers a sexier looking actress for the film.”
“Even after discussing the matter at length with Vipul, John doesn’t know which actress suits the role the best. John would ideally make a choice between Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor and Bipasha Basu,” adds a source.
When Shah was enquired about the same, the director said, “We are still getting our script ready. There was a delay from our end due to which John wasted his time. We are committed to Asin, but due to a delay from the creative team there might be a date clash with Asin’s film ‘Ready’, which is being directed by Anees Bazmee.”
