John Abraham-Shoojit Sircar set to make eight films together
Mumbai: John Abraham is set to make at least eight films in collaboration with director Shoojit Sircar and says they have a blind faith in each other.
Sircar directed ‘Vicky Donor’, the first film that came out from John`s production company, and after that he also did ‘Hamara Bajaj’ and ‘Madras Cafe’.
"After that (`Hamara Bajaj` and `Madras Cafe`), Shoojit and I are making a lot of films together. We have tied up as production houses. We are making at least eight films together," the 40-year-old said here Wednesday in an interview.
"So we are doing a lot of films together because there is a blind understanding and faith between Shoojit and me. I respect him a lot," he added.
‘Vicky Donor’ was recently named for three National Awards - Best Popular Film providing Wholesome Entertainment and best supporting actor and actress for Annu Kapoor and Dolly Ahluwalia, respectively.
John is honoured with the recognition and hopes to repeat it with his next production "Madras Cafe."
"I am honoured because at the end of the day I am an Indian and I am honoured to get not one but three National Awards for my first film. I hope to repeat the same performance with my next production `Madras Cafe`," John said.
Talking about ‘Madras Cafe’, John said it has turned out really well.
"In terms of awards, we would love to put that up for awards as well because it has turned out to be great. People who have seen it have loved it and said that they have seen such a film in India for the first time. We as Indians should feel proud of a film like that," John, who plays an army officer in the movie, said.
‘Madras Cafe’, a political thriller, also stars Nargis Fakhri and is slated for an Aug 30 release.
