Bollywood actor John Abraham says there are no action sequences between him and director Nishikant Kamat in “Rocky Handsome”.
Nishikant plays villain in the film.
“There is no action sequence with Nishikant,” John said at the trailer launch of the film.
Nishikant, who has in the past acted in Marathi films as well as the Hindi film ‘404’, will for the first time act in a mainstream film. “Honestly, I didn’t think at all of portraying a baddie. Kevin Pereira’s role was supposed to be done by my friend… he was not certain and just two days before the shooting, he opted out.
“As we had already finalised John’s dates, we couldn’t change the schedule. Since I was very much aware of the script I thought of giving it a shot,” the “Drishyam” director said.
In “Rocky Handsome’, the lead character is played by John Abraham and revolves around an unforgiving man who embarks on a lethal rampage when the only person he cares about, a seven-year-old kid, is kidnapped and taken away from him.
In a backdrop of Goa, Mumbai, Pune and Seychelles, the film is an adrenaline pumping action film and also about a strong emotional relationship between a father who never had a daughter and a seven-year-old daughter who never had a father.
The film, also starring Shruti Haasan, Nathalia Kaur, Nora Fatehi and Sharad Kelkar, is an official remake of 2010 Korean film ‘The Man from Nowhere’.
The film hits theatres on March 25.
