The actor-producer expresses his desire to make a film based on boxing and plans to rope in world champions
It would be unfair to label John Abraham as a fitness enthusiast. The actor deserves to be called a fitness freak, and we mean that in a good way, considering the guy has built himself up like a tank! After successfully establishing himself as an action hero, John now wants to further his image as a promoter of sports such as boxing by making a movie around it.
Recently, as John collaborated with the celebrated heavyweight boxing champion David Haye and launched their flagship fitness-cum-boxing center, he also expressed his wish to make a movie around the sport. “I grew up on Rocky series and that's why I went to the gym too. I would like to get a credible film where boxing is taken seriously. I want people to see my film and say that's a first timer in India,” said John. And what’s more, after turning producer with a quirky film like Vicky Donor, John has gathered the wits and the guts to go ahead with a different sort of venture. “With the kind of films that are being accepted today, I feel, with the capacity of a producer and an actor, someone like David would be far more accepted when he comes onscreen and shows boxing in a (different) light,” said Johnny boy.
Well, we definitely like the idea, and we do hope you branch out to doing many more interesting projects!
