Looks like John has started getting choosy about his female co-stars.
John would be playing the role of an encounter specialist in the movie.
A source reveals, “Vipul Shah was very keen to have Asin as the lead actress of the film. She and Venkatesh were the lead pair in the Telegu original. Vipul was also impressed by Asin’s performance in London Dreams and hence spoke to her about his forthcoming venture. But on suggesting the same to John, he was shocked as the actor refused to be paired opposite Asin.”
A source also revealed that, according to John, Asin is not fit for the role and prefers a sexier looking actress for the movie. He would ideally prefer Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor or Bipasha Basu.
However, Vipul Shah says that John has no issue with Asin and that it is purely a date problem and he is hopeful that it can be worked out. He also confirmed that Asin will play the lead actress in the movie.
John remained unavailable for comment.
