John Abraham talks Force 3, says will only make films he considers special
John Abraham will reprise his role as ACP Yashvardhan in Force 3, which he will also produce.
Actor and producer John Abraham recently spoke about his upcoming projects, how he picks films and the non-commercial films he has starred in.
In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, the actor spoke about Force 2, the second installment in the Force series, which released a week after the demonitisation of Rs 500 and 1000 currency notes.
The film suffered its after-effects. John Abraham spoke about how he contemplated shifting the release date of Force 2, but the studio did not want to lose any money. He added that work on the third installment will begin at the end of 2017, and that he will reprise his role as ACP Yashvardhan.
"Force is all about body, action and plot; we’ll keep that intact. We already have a plot which is close to my heart. It’s one of the best true stories to come out of India," said the actor. Force 3 will be produced by the actor himself and Vipul Shah, and will be directed by Abhinay Deo.
Before the release of Force 3, another of his productions is lined up to open on 8 December, 2017. He chose this date because it falls in a clear two-week window period and is not willing to budge when it comes to this decision. He says that 26 January would have been an ideal release date for the project, but that two other films are already releasing on that day, including Akshay Kumar's 2.0.
This untitled project is based on the successful Indian nuclear test in Pokhran, which was carried out in 1998. He said that he took the idea from Tere Bin Laden director Abhishek Sharma and his production house was developing it in-house. The film will not be "artsy" or "preachy" and it will speak to the youth of India and attempt to explain that this story is what makes the country "cool".
Mohanlal, Abhishek Bachchan, Arjun Kapoor among others marked the 22nd anniversary of Kargil Vijay Diwas and said that the sacrifice of the soldiers will never be forgotten.
