'Run'-off

Just a few weeks ago, Vivek Oberoi had expressed a keen desire to go in for the `remake' rights of Madhavan's `Run', which is a super hit.

According to the grapevine, Vivek had even visited Chennai at the insistence of his friend, Madhavan, who wanted him to see the film and then decide. But before Vivek could warm up, Abhishek Bachchan has clinched the role.

They say producer Boney Kapoor snapped up the `remake' rights of the film at an astronomical figure before anyone else could do so. Boney Kapoor has signed up Abhishek who had expressed a keen desire to play the role. It seems as though what Vivek proposes, Jr. Bachchan disposes.
