Actor John Abraham is on a roll ever since the success of his last movies ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’ and ‘Satyameva Jayate’. Now the actor who is busy shooting Nikkhil Advani’s ‘Batla House’ has been signed in for a comedy-drama directed by King of Comedy, Anees Bazmi. John will be starred opposite none other than actress Ileana D’Cruz in the movie.
As per the source of a leading daily, “The film primarily revolves around two male characters, but Ileana is the solo Heroine in it. Anees wanted someone with good comic timing and was impressed with her act in ‘Mubarakan’ (2017), so he got her on board.”
Talking about John, Anees was quoted saying, “When John heard the script he was in splits. He immediately said yes. John and I have earlier done another well-received comedy Welcome Back. Ours will be an out and out comedy. I think laughter is the need of the hour.”
Explaining the tentative title of the movie the director added, “According to the Hindu calendar sadhe sati is the worst time in any individual’s life. Everything and anything he does will go wrong. My comedy takes off from there.”
The film will be produced by Kumar Mangat will go on floors in 2019.
