John Abraham challenges Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn
The Force actor says that his action film is very different from Wanted, Dabangg and Singham. The fight sequences are more like the scenes from Sunny Deol’s Ghayal
In recent times action has become a favourite genre of our tinseltownies. After Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn, it is John Abraham’s turn to punch some goons. But the actor says that his latest film – Force – isn’t inspired from Wanted, Dabangg or Singham. He insists, “Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn have been doing action, but when you see Force you will know what action I am talking about. It is real action, simply amazing.” Does that mean our superstars did not do ‘real’ action? The brawny actor quickly clarifies, “I am very happy that their films (Wanted, Dabangg and Singham) have had super normal success. Ajay truly deserves it. His action in Aakrosh is superlative. But this film (Force) has raw action that you probably saw in Sunny Deol’s Ghayal, Arjun Pandit and Dacait. The masses like that. They want to see some action, the kind where people are not flying!” There he goes again, poking fun at the superstars as superheroes. John revealed that unlike a lot of films where special effects are applied to create unbelievable fight sequences, in Force they kicked some real butts and broke lots of bones. And that was the reason the brawny man had to go from 88 kilos to 96 kilos. Let’s hope John’s weighty ‘force’ topples the star action heroes at the box-office.
