Mumbai, Aug 17 (IANS) It looks like John Abraham and Aishwarya Rai will finally come together as a screen pair in a film for Rohan Sippy, which will start early next year.
What's more, John and Ash have taken with them director Sriram Raghavan, who was supposed to direct them in producer Gaurang Doshi's 'Happy Birthday'.
Confirming these developments, Raghavan told IANS: 'We're no longer working for Gaurang. That project, 'Happy Birthday', didn't work out. John, Aishwarya and I are doing a completely different project for Rohan Sippy.'
Incidentally, Aishwarya's husband Abhishek Bachchan and Rohan are the best of buddies and are all set to do another film together after 'Bluffmaster'.
'Yes,' conceded Raghavan. 'But that's a separate project from mine. John and Ash are working in my project. But Abhishek isn't in my film.'
Raghavan's film for Sippy would be the first project to bring together the John-Ash combo. Soon after that, Suniel Shetty brings them and Abhishek together in 'Raaste'.
'The project got delayed because of Abhishek's dates, the wedding, the honeymoon etc. So we lost the opportunity to shoot a particular race in Mexico. It happens just once a year. So we now have to wait till next year to shoot the race. But the project is very much on,' said Suniel.
