MUMBAI: Seen at the ‘Wassup Andheri’ function in the suburb of Andheri, Abhishek Bachchan was the star who shone brightest this Thursday evening.

Looking casually chic, the Junior B, as Abhishek Bachchan is fondly known, put in an appearance at the Andheri festival in Mumbai. The Wassup Andheri is a three day long festival, which showcases arts and entertainment and is held every year at Andheri in Mumbai. There are reportedly competitions for film directors at short film-making, where they showcase their respective unreleased short films.

Abhishek Bachchan was spotted looking very happy to be attending the festival, as he lounged about in a white sweatshirt and blue jeans, which he accessorised nicely with a blue cap.

Reportedly, Abhishek is all set to reprise his role in Dharma Productions’ sequel to the hit 2008 film ‘Dostana’.

Said the talented actor, speaking about working out his schedule to accommodate ‘Dostana 2’,“Yes, ‘Dostana 2’ will be starting later this year. Right now, we are figuring out the schedules. Karan, Tarun, John and I had decided last year itself that this is the script we want to go with. At the moment, the film is in the pre-production stage.”

Reveals a source close to the projects, “Since Dostana was a big hit, none of them (the makers and others involved) wanted to go ahead unless they were completely sure of the script. They know the expectations are sky-high, which is why no one wants to take a chance.”

Buzz is that the makers still haven’t finalised the female lead. “It’s too early to talk about the actress, but they should find one within a month or two. Right now, all options are being explored, but Karan will take a final call once he wraps up Bombay Talkies,” says the insider source.
