Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham together in a remake!

Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham have been finalized as the lead pair in the Tamil remake of the film, vettai after Shahid Kapoor pulled out of the project.

According to a source, the director of the film, N Linguswami has been replaced by Abbas and Mustan.

A source said:

The film will now go on the sets late next year. Earlier R Madhavan and Ali Zafar were said to be cast for the project. Now the makers are talking to Abhishek and John and they could be playing the roles of the two lead characters.

Another source adds,

UTV suffered a roadblock as far as Vettai is concerned and the film was put on hold indefinitely. Now things are once again falling in place.

John and Abhishek are a formidable duo and after Dostana they are one of the most sought after pairs in Bollywood. While the fate of its sequel remains undecided, both of them could come together again in this remake.
