The Desi Boyz actor seems to be very serious about his first film as a producer
Though John Abraham is popular for his action and comedy films, he comes across as someone very passionate about all aspects of filmmaking. His foray into serious films like Deepa Mehta’s Water and Anurag Kashyap’s No Smoking didn’t earn him any brownie points but that hasn’t turned him off from such ventures. While most of the folks in B-town flag off their production houses to salvage their doomed careers and give themselves roles, John has other ideas. In a recent interview, he said, “It was a conscious decision to not act in my first production because I believe producing a film is about creating quality content that I believe in. Shoojit (Sircar)is a director par excellence, and when he narrated the script to me I wanted to bring this commercial breakthrough cinema to the audience at large.” Wethinks it is a smart decision on John’s part.
