John-Genelia starrer Hook Ya Crook shelved

By Raymond Ronamai

David Dhawan"s film, Hook Ya Crook, starring John Abraham and Genelia D"Souza, has been shelved. It was going steady, had completed 90% of the film and even had UTV as its producer. The film was done away with, despite the amount of funds poured in by UTV, because they felt it won"t work.

UTV had been depending on Hook Ya Crook but after watching some portions of the film, they were disappointed. They had creative differences with David Dhawan over it and the film was put aside. It was a major decision on their part, as Rs. 20 crore had been invested on the film.

There had been rumours about the film being stuck for a while now but they were generally dismissed by those connected to the project as they cited the unavailability of dates of Indian cricketers. The climax scene of the film had a cricket match between Team India and a team of jail inmates, where John Abraham is the skipper of the prison team.

John is especially disturbed by this decision as his previous film Aashayein too didn"t release. John and David have both disagreed with this decision and want to make sure the film releases. They are working on the remaining parts of the film right now.
