John Abraham: 1911 is a blend of Chak De! India and Lagaan!

Bollywood’s most dashing guy John Abraham’s upcoming movie 1911, based on football will be going on floors in October this year, and the actor describes it as a combination of Lagaan and Chak De! India.

“We are very excited about it going on floors,” said John.

“We are doing a lot of research on the film. It’s a true story. For people, who want to understand what kind of a film it is, it is like Lagaan meeting Chak De! (India). I would hope and say that it’s even better,” the 41-year-old said here during an endorsement shoot for the Hockey India League team Delhi Waveriders.

“More than just Mohun Bagan, I like both East Bengal and Mohun Bagan. I think it’s important to share with people that it’s not just on Mohun Bagan, it’s a film on football. It’s a film that I am producing and Shoojit Sircar in directing, it’s called 1911. It is starting this October,” said John, who had earlier featured in football based drama Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal.

When asked which sports film he feels is the best, John said, “I think the best film based on sports will be 1911.”
