John Abraham’s Rocky Handsome is an upcoming film which has John in the lead role but the movie won’t have any female lead as the character played by John loves himself more than anything.
The director Nishikanth Kamat says “Apart from John there is one other pivotal character, a male associate to John’s character. And they share very close bonding. But no leading lady, not even for the songs. I will have three songs in the film. But they’d all be in background.”
When asked if he is uncomfortable with songs, Kamat adds “I didn’t have lip-sync songs in any of my earlier films until recently in my Marathi film Lai Bhaari which Riteish Deshmukh has produced. He also plays the lead. Though it’s not a comedy it’s a much lighter film than my earlier films Mumbai Meri Jaan, Force or my first film Dombivali Fast which was in Marathi.”
When asked what John feels about not having a leading lady, Kamat says he is quite ok with it. “John has matured beyond recognition in recent times. He is ready to stick his neck out as a producer and an actor. Last year Madras Cafe proved it. I really liked John in Madras Cafe,” says Nishikanth.
