Before Dostana, in which the duo played friends, they had come together portraying foes in Dhoom.
Abhishek was present at the announcement of the 60th Filmfare Awards in Mumbai, when he was asked about his thoughts on working with John in Hera Pheri 3.
"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.
Hera Pheri 3 will be directed by Neeraj Vora and it also stars actors Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty from the original Hera Pheri series. The film' shooting is slated to begin in March this year.
