The Race 2 actor is back! But wait, we’ve seen John in this avatar before – in Nishikant Kamat’s Force. Is anything different here?
It’s John Abraham who we see flexing his muscles in the movie’s first look photograph that’s set in aamchi Mumbai. That pose, that John flaunting his six-pack abs in Shootout At Wadala… awesome, we say. But we instantly realise that we have seen Abraham look almost the same fairly recently – in Force, no? But that’s expected, right? ‘Coz his character in Shootout at Wadala is that of the popular underworld gangster – Manya Surve. We really wonder if there could ever be a gangster like the hunk in real life!
The makers of the crime thriller unveil a new picture of John relentlessly leaning out of a moving bus with a reddish backdrop, once again showing off his beefed-up muscles, angrily yelling out something on his arrival. And yes, he’s sporting a teeka on his forehead! After all, he’s playing a Maharashtrian gangster na, forgot sillies? The actor recently admitted in an interview that he has worked hard to get into the character, who was shot dead by the Mumbai police. “I can honestly say that I have put in every kind of effort to study this character, to work on the way he supposedly behaved. In fact, me and Sanjay (Gupta) went and met the people who knew him to find out how Manya Surve behaved and the way he spoke,” said the 39-year-old.
