There’s more action waiting in the wings for John Abraham. After Nishikant Kamath’s Force, the actor will star in director Aditya Bhattacharya’s flick Kala Ghoda which will take him several notches higher as an action hero.
Kala Ghoda is about one night when everything goes wrong with Mumbai’s underbelly, and the action in it promises to be real and not staged with real punches and even bullets.
Aditya Bhattacharya, who is the grandson of legendary Bimal Roy and son of director Basu Bhattacharya, and whose eighties’ film Raakh proved a game changer for Aamir Khan, told Mirror, “Kala Ghoda is the story of two cops, one hard-nosed no-nonsense and volatile played by John and the other, a goofy ineffective bumbling cop, played by Kunaal Roy Kapoor of Delhi Belly fame, who come together under trying circumstances for one night of relentless action in Mumbai.”
The film will be shot in one schedule of 20-25 days in real time and on actual locations. It will go on floors end this year.
Meanwhile, producer John, who has conceived Kala Ghoda as a low-budget, gritty, independent film meant for a specific target audience, has been secretly preparing for his brawny role, alongside his role in Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout at Wadala.
