Three years after Priyadarshan's Garam Masala, John Abraham will once again be doing a comedy. The still-to-be-titled movie will be directed by David Dhawan for UTV.

The corporate house had signed up Dhawan more than a year ago.

But the Sanjay Dutt-Zayed Khan film which was apparently being scripted by Rensil D'Silva (of Rang De Basanti fame) didn't take off.

Abraham was committed to UTV for two films. One of them, Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal, was released last year.

Going solo
Last week, Dhawan and Abraham met for the final narration and have confirmed that they will be doing the film. The rest of the cast and crew is being finalised.

Abraham, who was completely overshadowed by Akshay Kumar in Garam Masala, need not worry this time. This is a solo-hero project.
