Bollywood Actor-producer John Abraham feels all Rs 100 crore club films are not great. After the critical and commercial success of Vicky Donor, the actor's production house John Abraham Entertainment and Rising Sun Films have teamed up once again for Madras Cafe.
The movie is a spy thriller and the story is based on the
political relations between India and Sri Lanka. It is set to
release on August 23. "This is a serious film. We believe in making
quality films. I don't know how much crores the film would make. I
feel all Rs 100 crore films are not the greatest movies," said John
on July 11 at the trailer launch of Madras Cafe.
There are two other big release in the month of August.
Chennai Express on August 8 and Once Upon A Time in
Mumbaai Dobara on August 15. "Holidays do get you a good
opening but at the end of the day, the content, quality of the film
will speak. We are confident about our film and its release date.
We wanted a clear open window and we have got that. It is a clutter
breaker film, it is a very special project... we have spent
six-seven years on it," John explained.
The Madras Cafe team has worked hard for this movie and
spent a lot of time to make the content strong. "We want to make
entertaining films with strong content. We want to make quality
films," he added. There were reports that the film has a reference
to Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's assassination and also deals with
the LTTE's activities in Sri Lanka. "The film has no such
depictions. The backdrop of the film is India-Sri Lanka and after
that the entire story is fictional. It is a realistic film. I'm
satisfied with the final cut," director Shoojit
