John Abraham can do buff (as seen in Dostana), he can do scruff (as seen in Jism)…but he says no to a mo’. The Bollywood hunk has been asked to grow a mustache and cultivate a scruffy, tough look for his role as a cop fighting organised crime in Vipul Shah’s untitled remake of Tamil film Kaakha Kaakha. So far, the actor is resisting.
According to sources, the idea for John to sport a mustache came up during one of the initial creative meetings for the film, but John dismissed the idea and suggested the creative team come up with some other options. In both the Tamil and Telegu versions of the film, the lead actors sported mustaches, making John the odd one out!
Allegedly, the actor feels he can’t pull off a mustache — despite having sported stubble and a scruffy appearance in his first film Jism.
Producer Vipul Shah’s only comment on the matter?
“We are having a look test soon. We will finalise the look after that.”
