Mumbai: If Bollywood choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan has her way, there’s a fair chance to watch hunk John Abraham share screen space with King of romance Shah Rukh Khan, for the first time ever (for the uninitiated – SRK only appeared in an item song in John’s ‘Kaal’) .
While everyone knows that Farah is working earnestly to come up with her much talked about project ‘Happy New Year’, the firebrand lady seems to have cast a ‘killer coup’ for her next. Farah has already roped in SRK, Abhishek Bachchan and Boman Irani for her film and with John joining the team, the actor completes ‘Happy New Years’ male quartet.
While John is yet to confirm the report, a source close to the actor said, "Farah wanted someone with a very cool body language for the fourth male lead. She had been toying with the idea of casting John for a long time. The deal was sealed a few days before John flew off to Turkey to shoot for ‘Race 2’."
As for John, "He is very happy he will be working with Shah Rukh for the first time. And he is excited he will share screen space with Abhishek, with whom he enjoyed great camaraderie during the making of ‘Dostana’ and has been good friends with ever since," said the source.
Shah Rukh for his part is very comfortable with Farah`s decision to bring both Abhishek and John on board, revealed an insider.
As for the leading lady of ‘Happy New Year’ which is expected to roll by end this year, the casting is yet to be done.
