Director-producer Sanjay Gupta is basking in the glory of his latest hit, Shootout At Wadala. While the cast members are still celebrating the movie’s success throwing party after party, Sanjay isn’t resting. He already has the germ of an idea for the next Shootout.
Sanjay Gupta is reportedly keen to repeat his Manya Surve, John Abraham, in his next movie as well, and might rope in Abhishek Bachchan to play the other lead. The new Shootout is said to be inspired by the leading encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar, who had gunned down nearly 80 criminals, before getting killed while fighting terrorists in the November 2008 Mumbai attacks.
For the new Shootout, Abhishek is tipped to play Vijay Salaskar and John is likely to play a top cop, sidelining Abhi. Sources claim that the film will only take some references from the Salaskar chapter in history as he had killed many gangsters.
Abhishek Bachchan as a suave cop in Dhoom 3 is an endearing character, while John Abraham too has proved his mettle as a cop in Force. As for now, Sanjay Gupta is not willing to divulge any detail as he is working on the script, which also needs a thorough research.
Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham will also be seen in Dostana 2. The movie is expected to go on the floors by October 2013.
