Bollywood hottie John Abraham had to shed a lot of weight for his role in his upcoming movie Madras Cafe. The actor reportedly was on a strict diet and worked out rigorously to look perfect for the role of Kaushal Chokhawala, an Indian Intelligence Agent.
Madras Cafe is a political-thriller directed by Shoojit Sircar. The plot revolves around the civil was and deals with terrorism. Parts of the movie were shot in Sri Lanka and India.
The director of the movie, Shoojit Sircar in a recent interview said, “I had asked John to lose weight for this film and he did that. If he stands in a crowd he should not stand out. He should look like one of them as he is not a hero in the film. Heroism of the film is the content and not John,”
Appreciating his hard work, Shoojit further added, “You will see a new John in this film,” he added.
Shoojit Sircar directed John Abraham’s Vicky Donor and now they seem to share a great relationship. If rumours are to be believed, they will soon start working in another project.
When Asked Shoojit to comment on the director-producer relationship, he said, “Now we are good friends it’s a good relationship. We are planning for few more films together. We want to take this relationship ahead. He never interferes in my work and it’s vice versa. I don’t know marketing so he takes care of it,”.
