MUMBAI: He has been a part of films of various genres, but action remains actor-producer John Abraham’s all-time favourite.
John, who has been saying that the stunts in his next film “Rocky Handsome” are of an altogether new level in Bollywood, said in a statement: “Be it little kids, boys or grown up men, we have all been fascinated by action throughout our lives.
I’ve mainlined on movies of superheroes, action men and never-back-down toughies locked in intense, fierce combat, gripping the weapons of their choice.
“That style and panache, their grit and guts have been the things that have kept us engaged and enticed. Action is definitely my favourite genre in movies, and I have myself pulled off a few stunts in some of my films, including ‘Rocky Handsome’.”
The actor has shot a promo for a section of English movie channel Movies Now. He has filmed it for popular action-movies-packed offering Weapons of Choice, which features top-rated action films every weeknight. On this platform, John also cross-promotes his “Rocky Handsome”.
The trailer of “Rocky Handsome” sees John in an intense action avatar to save the life of a young girl. He is seen in an array of action sequences with guns and knives while also showcasing his toned physique. Directed by Nishikant Kamat, “Rocky Handsome” features John with Shruti Hassan in the lead.
The film revolves around a man who sets out to take revenge against the drug mafia after they take away an eight-year-old girl, with whom he shares a special bond. It will hit the screens on March 25.
