Following the announcement of the upcoming movie, "Hera Pheri 3",  Abhishek Bachcchan revealed that John Abraham is one of his favourite co-stars during the press meet of the 60th Britannia Filmfare Awards on Monday.

When the "Happy New Year" actor was asked to speak about his upcoming film and co-actor John, he said that he was very excited to work with his "Dostana" co-star after seven long years. He also revealed that John is one of his favourite co-stars. The two have also worked together in the first installment of the "Dhoom" franchise.

"I'm very excited. I call him John baba. He is one of my favourite co-stars. We were both in search of a good script because we wanted to work together after 'Dhoom' and 'Dostana'...so we were happy with the new script of 'Hera Pheri 3'," he said, IANS reports.

Expectations for the upcoming film are sky-high as its previous installments have enjoyed box office success and the flick also marks the comeback of the "Dostana" boys. 

"Hera Pheri 3", directed by Neeraj Vora, also stars Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty in pivotal roles. Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar - who was a part of the previous installments - will not be seen in the upcoming comedy film.

The film, which is the continuation of "Phir Hera Pheri", is expected to go on floors by March, this year, in Mumbai, Dubai and Las Vegas.
