The Dostana actor, a self confessed fan of the South superstar, wishes he could act in Jaffna along with Mohanlal
After the success of Vicky Donor, John Abraham has turned into a full-fledged producer and is doing the best he can to tie in a smashing cast for his upcoming political thriller Jaffna. And if you thought that the hunk was all brawn and not much else, you couldn’t be more off the mark!
Instead of going for a regular commercial, star studded cast, John expressed a wish to work alongside veteran South actor Mohanlal in Jaffna. John, half Malayali himself, said that he would love to work with Mohanlal as there was much that he could learn from him.
Jaffna, a political thriller based on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in Sri Lanka is being helmed by director Shoojit Sircar. While the main cast of the film hasn’t been finalised yet, John has already roped in another actor from down South – Leena Maria who has done a string of critically acclaimed films.
It is also said that John is quite aware about the political situation all over the world and immediately agreed to produce Jaffna when director Shoojit Sircar narrated the script to him. See – that’s what we said!? It’s not just about muscles and good looks for Johnny boy!
