When Abbas Mustan's Players was offered to Abhishek Bachchan he jumped at the opportunity to step into the shoes of Academy award winning Micheal Caine,an actor he deeply admires.
Abhishek has been a huge fan of Micheal Caine (6 time Oscar nominated ) and Italian Job for as long as he can remember and couldn't be more excited to star in the Bollywood remake of the original.
Says Abhishek Bachchan "I love the attitude that Caine carried in all his films. I've lost count of how many times I've seen The Italian Job.Although I have to admit I've seen Caines version more times than [Mark] Wahlbergs.Its a cult film."
Says a source close to the actor "Abhishek couldn't be more excited about working on Players....the concept is something he's loved ever since he watched the original..."
