Seems like it is year of sequels for John Abraham. He is working on the sequel to Vidyut Jammwal-starrer Force. John has also replaced Akshay Kumar in Welcome Back -the sequel to the 2007 hit comedy. John is also part of third part of the Hera Pheri series.
The sequel to Force now has a name: Rocky Handsome. Talking about the movie, John said that it is a step ahead of Force and added that it promises great intensity and "never-seen-before" action.
"My next film is Rocky Handsome, releasing on October 2. It is a step ahead of Force. It has 'never-seen-before' action. You (audiences) can expect a lot of action, lot of body (show)...lot of stunts and great intensity," John said at an event.
Rocky Handsome is an action-thriller being directed by Nishikant Kamat. An adaptation of the Korean film The Man from Nowhere, it features John as a killing machine. John believes the movie is a great solo film for him.
He will replace Akshay Kumar in the 2007 hit Welcome that starred Paresh Rawal, Nana Patekar, Anil Kapoor and Katrina Kaif among others. John said Paresh Rawal helped him immensely in excelling at comic timing while working for Welcome Back. He can't thank him enough. "I would like to thank Paresh Rawal because he is one of the reasons why I have improved my comic timing," John told reporters.
"If you see, most of my comedy films -- be it Garam Masala, Desi Boyz or Housefull 2 -- these have been with co-stars but Welcome Back, in a strange way has me alone. I have been let out into the wild alone," he added.
John also expressed hope that the audience will not only love the film directed by Anees Bazmi, but also his work. "I have seen the film (Welcome Back), so I can only tell you that you could be probably in the saddest state of your life, but when you go and see the film, it will make you so happy," the 42-year-old said.
"It's a universal film. Kids will love it, grandparents will love it, everyone is going to love this film. And I hope I've done well for myself," he added.
