Recent reports say that Sakshi Chaudhary, a model-turned-actor, has been cast in the third instalment of the comic caper Hera Pheri 3 opposite John Abraham.

However, a source close to the actor says that John has just been offered the film and that he has not signed it yet.
“John has only read the script so far as he is busy shooting for his film, Welcome Back, and his home production. So he is yet to give the project his nod,” says the source.
It is being said that Sakshi has been cashing in on John’s star status by spreading word about his involvement with the project. Adds the source, “Some people have been saying that she is in talks with the production house and knows John very well.
But the fact remains that John does not know her at all and the two haven’t even met yet. He was quite surprised to read reports about being cast opposite her.”
Despite several attempts, John and producer Firoz Nadiadwala remained unavailable for comment.
