The GI Joe Retaliation star was reportedly convinced by Salman Khan to join co-star Vinay Virmani for the film’s release in India
The Indo-Canadian production, to be premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival, is expected to have a grand Indian release a little later in the year when Salman Khan, who is the film’s official presenter, would be free of his own big release Kick.
While the big plans for the Indian release are being kept under wraps the buzz from sources close to the project suggests that Salman is keenly interested in bringing the cast of Dr. Cabbie to India for the release.
“While Salman has convinced Izabelle Kaif (Katrina’s sister) who has a pivotal role in Dr Cabbie, to be in India for the film’s Indian release, Adrianne was not so keen until her co-star Vinay convinced her that a trip to India would be just the stress-buster she needed,” said a source.
The moralities of the Indian release are now being worked out.
“We do want to come with Dr Cabbie to India. The film is produced outside but its heart is completely Indian. It’s the story of a qualified Indian doctor who ends up as a taxi driver in Canada,” said Vinay who was last seen as one of the leads in Bejoy Nambiar’s David.
He hopes to consolidate his career in Bollywood and abroad with Dr. Cabbie.
