John Abraham is super excited about his next film with Abbas Tyrewala. So much so that he's decided to turn producer with the film. Guess John's been mighty impressed by Tyrewala's success with Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na.
The buzz is that the movie 1-800-Love is a quirky, witty and savagely funny look at the man-woman relationship penned by Tyrewala's wife Paakhi. Apparently so impressed was Abbas with his wife Paakhi that he had no objection about her playing the heroine in the film. As for John, he can't help but gush over the film's script.
The word is that after Anurag Kashyap's No Smoking and Nagesh Kukunoor's yet-to-be-released Aashayein, John is now looking out for roles that would challenge him as an actor.
Now very few people could get No Smoking and apparently the upcoming Aashayein is finding it difficult to get buyers. So even though John thinks he's doing great, we wonder if he's actually making the right moves.
He said, "After hearing the narration, John not only loved the script, he wanted to come on as a partner. So, effectively, the project will have three producers - Madhu K., John and myself." The movie gets its title from the toll-free phone numbers in the US. It will be shot in Boston in April in a start-to-finish schedule.
Let's wait and watch to see if John's career takes the right path post this flick!
