John Abraham is all set to make a movie on football which has been a favourite sport of his. He already played the male lead in his 2007 movie, Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal.
The movie is said to be directed by Shoojit Sircar, who already worked with John on Vicky Donor (2010). Not only this but the actor is also going to make films on bike racing and boxing film. It’s rumoured that international boxer David Haye might even feature in the boxing film.
“Shoojit has about a dozen interesting scripts and one of them happens to be about football. He feels John is perfect for the film because he has a great body, besides a strong liking for the sport,” adds an industry insider.
Apparently, John and Shoojit have already discussed the idea. “But there’s no confirmation on the start date yet,” adds the insider. “The film is definitely on the cards since John wants to make an authentic sports film on football.”
John didn’t give out too many details, only saying, “It’s too premature to talk about the film yet.”
