Bollywood hunk John Abraham is all set to woo the audience with his upcoming film Madras Cafe. Madras Cafe is said to have based on true events about a covert operation conducted in Sri Lanka in the late 1990s. The actor at the promotions of Madras Cafe talked about the allegation that some organisations have made on the movie.
John was asked by the reporters at the promotional event that what he has to say about Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa, who is said to have secretly invested in Madras Cafe. The actor said, " It's not true that Rajapaksa secretly financed my film. Viacom 18 Motion Pictures is the producer of my film. They would feel bad about these rumours and therefore Im clarifying again that it has not been secretly financed by anyone other than my producers."
Some people had said that John Abraham's Madras Cafe shows the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam in a bad light. Clarifying on this, John Abraham said, "We have not called anyone 'terrorists' in the film. We haven't taken sides... This film doesn't take any sides. We probably will show them (those opposing) the film.
Madras Cafe is directed by Shoojit Sircar. John Abraham is playing the role of an Indian intelligence agent in the film. While Nargis Fakhri, who is the female lead, plays an international reporter.
