John Abraham is yet to finalise a director for the Hindi remake of the film 'Mirchi'
Last year, actor-producer John Abraham acquired the remake rights of the hit Telugu film 'Mirchi'.
Directed by debutant Koratala Siva and starring Prabhas, Anushka Shetty and Richa Gangopadhyay in lead roles, the original film released in February last year and was declared a blockbuster upon its release.
A year since then, John is yet to sign on a director for the film’s Hindi remake. It seems that John had initially asked Koratala Siva to do so but the latter couldn’t come on board due to other prior commitments. Sources say that the actor is currently looking for a new director in his place.
“John is still trying to find a director for the film and it is also likely that John will act in it. The remaining cast is yet to be finalised. John is busy shooting for Welcome Back right now and will start work on this project once he finalises a director for the same,” says a source.
John Abraham remained unavailable for the comment.
