Did Aishwarya Rai Bachchan choose John Abraham for Jazbaa?

Buzz is that the Guru actor had a major say on who would be her co-star in the film

John Abraham has been cast opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa. The spy thriller that goes on floor in the coming months will be an action flick with a political twist. After Ash agreed to do the film, there was buzz on who would be cast opposite her. With John agreeing to do the film that speculation is over.

A source reveals that Ash was quite keen on having John in the film as it requires someone who can not only do action but also has a great screen presence. Sanjay Gupta who has worked with John in the past was also of the idea that he should do the film. However, it was important that Ash gave her consent.

Gupta was relieved when his heroine was happy with his choice given the fact that Abhishek Bachchan and John are good friends. The source adds that Gupta wants to make the set of the film as easy and conducive for Ash as possible.

Considering that John and Ash were supposed to come together in a Sriram Raghavan film that eventually got shelved, this seems like an ideal opportunity for the two good looking stars to share screen space.
