Making giant strides – Happy birthday John Abraham

Birthday boy John Abraham, who turns 39 today, has managed to bag one more film with a big banner. It’s the sequel of his 2008 hit film Dostana, this time. John has been paired with his good friend Abhishek Bachchan again, as the makers have roped in Katrina Kaif in place of Priyanka Chopra. The film is expected to go on floors, by mid 2012.

Karan Johar, who is the producer of the film tweeted about the definite plans of this sequel, using his Twitter ID. He tweeted, “DOSTANA 2 is definitely starting next year….Script is locked…abhishek and john are ready!!! the boys are back!! Tarun is all set….

According to rumors, a host of other bollywood stars have been booked to play significant roles in this film. The basic plot of the sequel is expected to remain in line with its prequel. The first installment of the Dostana series, had John and Abhishek portrayed as a false gay couple trying to win the heart of their lady love Priyanka Chopra. How the two actors, actually become a couple forms the part of the story.

The news will be music to the fans of John, as the actor had garnered public attention for his physique in the first part. Year has gone on a pleasant note for the actor, as his films Force and Desi Boyz both have done well at the box office. The actor has also moved on nicely in his personal life, following his breakup with actress Bipasha Basu. The couple was in a relation for almost 9 years and broke up recently. He has since been reportedly dating Priya Runchal, a banker by profession. He has also buried the hatchet with Salman Khan, by promoting his film, Desi Boyz on the Big Boss show which is hosted by Salman. The two reportedly had a tiff back in 2006, on an international tour over some financial issues. As things finally begin to settle down for John, we wish him all the best for his future.
