One of the best looking hunks of Bollywood is now set to team up with a Hollywood hottie. John Abraham will pair with a Hollywood actress in director Shirish Kunder’s much-touted ‘Alien Sahib’.
If reports are to be believed, Kunder is hoping to rope in either Scarlett Johansson or Anne Hathaway for the film which will be made for global audiences. The director plans to use the fusion 3D camera technique for the flick and will be signing a lot of technicians from the west for it.
But the big surprise is indeed the presence of a Hollywood actress.
“The female protagonist is a foreign national so we decided to cast a Hollywood actress for it,” Kunder is quoted as saying in a media report.
Though Shirish refuses to divulge any name, he’s flying to Los Angeles to meet the agents of a couple of Hollywood actresses.
With the meeting of talents from two the biggest filmmaking industries in the world, the possibility of a Hollywood actress working in a Bollywood movie is much more today than it was a few years ago. Just earlier this year, we saw Akshay Kumar romancing Denise Richards and rubbing shoulders with Sylvester Stallone in Kambakkht Ishq. John already has the advantage of having had international exposure through Deepa Mehta’s film Water which was nominated for the Oscars two years back.
