The last time Bobby Deol and Abhishek Bachchan came together in a film — Jhoom Barabar Jhoom — Deol stole the limelight from under his nose. Now, the duo is back together for Karan Johar"s untitled film, to be directed by Tarun Mansukhani.
The question is: will Bobby give Abhishek reason to be insecure again? Says a source, “Bobby has a great role in the film. In fact, he"ll be shooting for it for 30 days. Abhishek is definitely going to feel the heat as Bobby"s character has been styled and presented in a very exciting way.
Abhishek has always been insecure about Bobby, more so after Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. Bobby got praise from everyone for his role, including Karan (June 19, 'KJo"s Father"s Day blessings for Bobby")."
However, Karan clarifies that this isn"t a three-hero film. He says, “Abhishek and John (Abraham) play the male leads, while Bobby has a very special role.
He will be presented exceptionally and will be very stylish. Bobby is perfect for the role as he"s very style-conscious and fits the character to the T. I am very fond of Bobby and very happy that I could cast him in a Dharma Productions film."
Getting the look
So will Karan be styling Bobby"s look himself? “No, Manish (Malhotra) will be designing the look for Priyanka (Chopra), while Aki Narula will be doing the same for the men.
It"s Tarun"s film, so everything will be presented from his point of view. He has written every word in the script. I am there if he needs me," says Karan.
