Abhishek Bachchan"s is being made an offer he can"t resist…not for long anyway. He has been asked by two of his most favourite girl pals Vidya Balan and Meghna Gulzar to play the lead in Milte Hain, the film featuring Vidya Balan that Meghna is directing for producer Sanjay Gupta. Apparently Gupta has met John Abraham for the same role. But the two ladies are hellbent on Abhishek doing the role.
Says a source, “Abhishek"s mother Jayaji and Meghna"s father Gulzar Saab go back a long way. Jayaji calls Gulzar Saab her 'Bhai". Abhishek treats Meghna like a sister. There"s no way he can say no to her. On top of this, there"s Vidya who has repeatedly expressed a desire to work with Abhishek after Paa. It"s unlikely that Abhishek can say no to two such persuasive ladies."
There is a new twist in the tale, though. Apparently the producer Sanjay Gupta has met John Abraham for the same part. And let"s not forget, John is an old buddy of Vidya too from the time they did Salaam-e-Ishq together.
Is Gupta more keen on Abhishek than John for the part?
Says Gupta, “Yes I"ve met John for a part. Beyond that I am not revealing anything. Abhishek too is very dear to me. I leave the decision on whom to sign to Meghna." Last heard Abhishek had apparently shown a keen interest in Milte Hain.
Now that makes, John"s loss is Abhishek"s gain?
