All 100 crore films are not great: John Abraham

Mumbai, July 12:

Actor-producer John Abraham feels all Rs 100 crore club films are not great.

After the critical and commercial success of `Vicky Donor`, the actor`s production house JA Entertainment and Rising Sun Films have teamed up once again for `Madras Cafe`.

"This is a serious film. We believe in making quality films. I don`t know how much crores the film would make. I feel all Rs 100 crore films are not the greatest movies," John told reporters here last evening at the trailer launch of `Madras Cafe`.

A spy thriller, the film is a story based on the political relations between India and Sri Lanka and it releases on August 23. The other two big films releasing next month include - `Chennai Express` (on August 8 -Eid) and `Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai Dobara` (August 15).

"Holidays do get you a good opening but at the end of the day, the content, quality of the film will speak. We are confident about our film and its release date. We wanted a clear open window and we have got that. It is a clutter breaker film, it is a very special project... We have spent six-seven years on it," John said.

"We want to make entertaining films with strong content. We want to make quality films," he said.

There were reports that the film has a reference to Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi`s assassination and also deals with the LTTE`s activities in Sri Lanka.

"The film has no such depictions. The backdrop of the film is India-Sri Lanka and after that the entire story is fictional. It is a realistic film. I`m satisfied with the final cut," director Shoojit Sircar said.

The film was initially titled as `Jaffna`, but the makers finally settled for `Madras Cafe`, as it is relevant to the plot of the film. A strategic meeting happens at this place, Shoojit said.
The film also stars Nargis Fakhri as a war journalist.

"I am happy to be part of this film. It was great working with John and Shoojit. For my role of a journalist I researched a lot, I saw lot of things online, how they report and work, their body language etc. I got scared to shoot intense scenes," Nargis said.

John praised Nargis for her work in the film and said she will make everyone proud.

The trailer of `Madras Cafe` has been released with `Bhaag Milkha Bhaag`.
