Abhishek starrer Businessman will go on floor next year; will star Kajal Aggarwal
Kajal Aggarwal, who made quite an impact in Singham, is going places. She will be next seen with Mahesh Babu in Puri Jagannadh's Telugu film Businessman which will be shot entirely in Mumbai.
Post-Singham, efforts are on to rope Kajal into the Hindi version of Businessman as well. The Hindi version of Businessman has now been postponed to next year. Earlier the plan was to cast a new girl from the South opposite Abhishek in the Hindi version of Puri's film which is set in the underworld. But now, if all goes well, Kajal would be playing the lead in the Hindi and Telugu versions of Businessman.
The delay gives Abhishek a clean three months to prepare for his role. While much has been said and written about Abhishek getting into the fitness regime what is not known is that Businessman would require Abhishek to be in tiptop shape.
Says a source, "In fact more than Dhoom 3 where all the action sequences would centre on Aamir Khan, it is Businessman where Abhishek would really have to work on his physique. It's the story of a suave agile gangster who treats his work like a proper organized business and gets into the action mode on several occasions."
In fact one reason why the Hindi version of Businessman has been delayed is to let Abhishek build a physique comparable with that of the Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu who plays the title role in the Telugu version of Businessman.
When approached director Puri Jagannadh says, "We're starting the Telegu version of Businessman in September. It will be shot entirely in Mumbai. The Hindi version of the film starts next year. Beyond that I wouldn't want to reveal the plans we have for Abhishek."
