Bipasha Basu in Abbas Mustan’s The Italian Job Remake

Finally, Abbas Mustan must be happy after finalizing a leading lady in their multi-starrer remake of the The Italian Job (now titled Players). Yes that’s true after seeing rejections from actresses, including Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor, Abbas Mustan have signed Bipasha Basu for the leading role.

Along with Bipasha Basu, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Neil Nitin Mukesh are also starring in the flick. A source says,

“After seeing her sizzling avatar in Rohan Sippy’s Dum Maro Dum, the directors and the producers decided to sign her. Her character is sexy and deadly.

She won’t just be a scantily clad pretty face but an intelligent character who is part of the team.”

The mega budget film starts its first schedule in the first week of November in Goa. It will then travel to New Zealand and next year, to Russia.
