1911 is based on both the popular football clubs Mohun Bagan and East Bengal

John Abraham’s 1911, a film on football, is set to go on floors in October, and the actor describes it as a combination of Lagaan and Chak De! India.

“We are very excited about it going on floors,” said John.

“We are doing a lot of research on the film. It’s a true story. For people, who want to understand what kind of a film it is, it is like Lagaan meeting Chak De! (India). I would hope and say that it’s even better,” the 41-year-old said here during an endorsement shoot for the Hockey India League team Delhi Waveriders.

“More than just Mohun Bagan, I like both East Bengal and Mohun Bagan. I think it’s important to share with people that it’s not just on Mohun Bagan, it’s a film on football. It’s a film that I am producing and Shoojit Sircar in directing, it’s called 1911. It is starting this October,” said John, who had earlier featured in football based drama Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal.

After John Abraham, Bipasha Basu to tie the knot!

While Lagaan was a period drama set in pre-independent India revolving around the sport of cricket, Chak De! India was about the women’s hockey team.

When asked which sports film he feels is the best, John said, “I think the best film based on sports will be 1911.”
