John Abraham will be reuniting with his Welcome Back director Anees Bazmee for a rom-com titled Sade Saati. In this film, John’s character is struck by Sade Saati — a phase of bad luck for seven-and-a-half years. The source says, “Everything in this character’s life falls apart and nothing works for him. How he eventually succeeds is what the comedy is all about.” Audiences can expect an uproarious comedy-of-errors in typical Bazmee style.

John confirms, “This is one of the stories that we have discussed. But Anees bhai and I are speaking about more than one film currently.” An insider adds that the Welcome Back actor and director have been wanting to collaborate on a film, which John will also co-produce. Though there have been rumours that Parineeti Chopra will be seen in a film with John, he clarifies, “We have not locked down on anything yet — neither the film nor the cast. We, in fact, just had a conversation where we decided to meet next week.” Anees is busy with his next release Mubarakan and John is shooting for Parmanu, and the two will meet when John completes one schedule of the film and Mubarakan hits the theatres.
