Mumbai: Confirming that he will be featuring in the sequel of Aamir Khan’s “Sarfarosh”, actor John Abraham says he is geared up for the action-drama, which will be different from the original.
Directed by John Matthew Matthan, the 1999 film featured Aamir, Naseeruddin Shah, and Sonali Bendre. “Sarfarosh” chronicled the story of an Indian police officer’s quest to stop cross-border terrorism. Abraham says, “John Mathew Matthan and I are co-producing the film. We are still working on the script but yes it’s happening with me. We plan to go on floors next year. He is probably the only director whose house I went to after seeing ‘Sarfarosh’ and said ‘Man what a film’.”
“Sarfarosh” opened to critical acclaim and went on to win the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment. When asked if he is apprehensive since the original featured Aamir, Abraham said, “I’m in fact very excited. I love Aamir Khan, I’m his big fan. It’s a challenge but it’s a different character, different story but the ethos is the same. It’s going to be very exciting.” The actor’s line up of films, beginning with “Satyamev Jayate” releasing August 15, includes “Batla House”, and “RAW: Romeo Akbar Walter.”
