The original had Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham in the leading roles. The film revolved around the story of Sam (Bachchan) and Kunal (John), who fake being a gay couple in order to share the rented apartment of Neha Melwani (Chopra) in New York.
Dharma Productions is gearing up for a couple of big projects — Kalank and the period drama Takht, that will be helmed by Johar himself.
