I took a quick look.  I should have thought of this earlier, but for me on
MacOSX with Chrome and Firefox I get a CORS error:

Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the
remote resource at 
http://www.gadhavitechnologies.com/project/Flex/testData.json. (Reason:
CORS header 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' missing).

I'm not a security expert, but AIUI, Flash has a "localTrusted" sandbox
that when you are running from file:// it does not check crossdomain.xml
and allows all http access (mainly because there is no "domain" associated
with file:// URLs).  I am even less of an HTML security expert, but AIUI,
Chrome and Firefox expect CORS headers in the response even when running
from file:// (no idea what domain it uses).

So, search the internet for ideas on how to deal with that and see if
things get better for you.
