Finally the most talked about Bollywood remake of The Italian Job is underway. After a long delay, director duo Abbas-Mustan have managed to get together the cast for the remake of the Hollywood superhit. The film already had Abhishek Bachchan playing the lead role but there were question marks over who would play the leading lady as no actress has been finalised. Katrina Kaif had initially agreed to sign the film but backed out due to date problems.
However, the film is now scheduled to go on the floors and the remaining cast has been finalised. Abhishek Bachchan will play the lead role played by Mark Wahlberg in the original film while veteran actor Dharmendra has been signed on to play the role of Donald Sutherland. Akshaye Khanna, Kunal Khemu and Neil Nitin Mukesh have been finalised to play the rest of the characters. Neil will be playing a negative role in the film for the first time and the female leads are yet to be finalised. This will be the first time that Abhishek Bachchan will work with Dharmendra in a film. Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan have worked together in umpteen films including the classic Sholay and it will be interesting to watch them onscreen sharing the same frame.
