Who says the film industry lacks a spirit of generosity and solidarity?
Ask John Abraham. Super-keen to do Surya’s role in the Hindi remake of Gautham Menon’s 2003 Tamil blockbuster Kaakha Kaakha, John to his dismay discovered that the Hindi remake rights of the film about a cop on a vendetta trail was with Fardeen Khan.
John was very keen to do the film. When he saw the film he immediately asked his new director-pal Nishikant Kamat to make the film in Hindi. Kamath was busy scripting another action-masala film for John to be produced by UTV. But when he saw how keen John was to do Kaakha Kaakha in Hindi before anyone else did including Salman Khan (who apparently was very eager to do the film) Kamat agreed to do Kaakha Kaakha first before the other film with UTV.”
