While John Abraham has already replaced Akshay Kumar in Anees Bazmee's sequel to Welcome (2007), we hear John may be roped in for the Awara Paagal Deewana (2002) sequel too.

The first installment starred Akshay among others. But that's not all.

Buzz is that the next installment of Hera Pheri will also not see Akshay as a part of the cast.

Apparently, a new face is most likely to team up with the principal cast members, Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty.
