Reports say that during the shooting of Sanjay Gupta's movie Shootout At Wadala, a junior artist punched John's nose very hard. The punch was so hard that the actor started bleeding. Reportedly, the junior artist was supposed to hit lightly, but by mistake it was a tough punch.
There was immediate doctor's check up for the actor, in order to ensure whether he had broken any of his nose bones or not. John will be playing Manya Surve in the movie, the gangster who was shot dead by the Mumbai police in 1982.
