Talking on casting Abhishek in his next film, Amit Sharma said, "He (Abhishek) is a very good friend of mine and yes, we were in talks for a film... but nothing has materialized yet."

If one goes by reports, the film is said to be an action movie. However, whether Abhishek will bag the project or not is still uncertain.

Abhishek who garnered much appreciation for his quirky role in 'Happy New Year' has also been roped in for the third sequel of 'Hera Pheri' series.

Titled 'Hera Pheri 3', the comedy will be written and directed by Neeraj Vora, who helmed the second film 'Phir Hera Pheri'.

While Paresh Rawal will reprise his role as the hilarious Baburao Apte and Suneil Shetty will return as Ghanshyam, Akshay Kumar will be missing from the third film, which will star Abhishek and John Abraham.

Produced by Firoz A Nadiadwala, the film is scheduled to go on floors in February and will be shot across Las Vegas, Macau, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
