Recently, John interacted with the media during ‘Attack’ promotions, where he also spoke about the most awaited project ‘Pathaan’. On being asked about his six action sequences with Shah Rukh in the film, John said that he cannot speak much about it. But he assured that the audience will be ‘excited’ to see him back on the big screen.
John shared, “I am not in a position to say much on that. I can only tell you that Shah Rukh is a darling. You all will be excited to see him back.” The film is being helmed by Siddharth Anand and it is slated to release next year in January.
He was also asked about making a Malayalam film with Arjun Kapoor. John revealed that he had to push the project because ‘Pathaan’ got delayed. The actor said, “We pushed that out of the way because ‘Pathaan’ got delayed. As I speak to you, I still have to go back and shoot for ‘Pathaan’. I was supposed to finish it in December, but now I will finish it in April. I’ve lost everyone’s dates, so this Malayalam film has been pushed indefinitely, unfortunately.”
Apart from acting, John is also a producer. He has produced some of the most solid films like ‘Vicky Donor’, ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’, ‘Sardar Ka Grandson’ and much more. He is also producing regional content now. Speaking about it, John said, “I have just finished producing my first Malayalam film ‘Mike’ and I am producing a Tamil web series. I am looking at subjects in Marathi. I think Malayalam and Marathi cinema are two places where content is at its highest and it is so good for a reason. When you don’t have the budget, then it use the content as a crutch. The minute you have money, then you make s**t content. Content goes for a toss when you have your own money.”
