Rumours have been floating around that John Abraham will be a part of Aamir Khan’s Sarfarosh sequel and now the Dishoom actor has confirmed it. Sequel to Sarfarosh will be an action drama. However, a different character from Aamir Khan in the prequel will be played by John here. The original movie has been directed by John Matthew Matthan that has released in the year 1999. Apart from the Aamir Khan, Naseeruddin Shah and Sonali Bendre have been seen in the prequel. Through the story of the movie, an Indian police officer is shown who is in search of terrorists that are responsible for terrorism cross border.
During an interview John Abhraham has said, “John Mathew Matthan and I are co-producing the film. We are still working on the script but yes it’s happening with me. We plan to go on floors next year. He is probably the only director whose house I went to after seeing ‘Sarfarosh’ and said ‘Man what a film.”
Sarfarosh has got all the critical acclamation. Later on, it has won the National Award in the category of Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment also.
On asking whether John is frightened to say yes to the movie as perfectionist Aamir Khan has played the lead in original. In reply, John has said “I’m in fact very excited. I love Aamir Khan, I’m his big fan. It’s a challenge but it’s a different character, different story but the ethos is the same. It’s going to be very exciting.”
Apart from Sarfarosh remake, John has also signed Batla House and RAW: Romeo Akhbar Walter.
Talking about Batla House, John Abraham has said “Batla House’ will be the most explosive film you’ve seen. It’ll show how polarised the world is and it’s straight in its face. If we accept ‘Batla House’ it’ll be the most successful film.” Batla House will be directed by Nikhil Advani.
