Shoojit and I are planning to make a film on football: John Abraham
John Abraham is now taking his interest in sports forward by planning to make films on football, motorcycling and boxing.

Mumbai: After winning critical acclaim for his last release, 'Madras Cafe', based on the Sri Lankan civil war, actor-producer John Abraham is now taking his interest in sports forward by planning to make films on football, motorcycling and boxing.

"We are making a film on sports... Shoojit has quite a few ideas. The only thing I could reveal is the film is about football, it is based on that. We are still in development stage and we will make an announcement on it," John told PTI in an interview here.

"No, it is not a biopic on any sports personality but it is based on a true story. It is amazing, adventurous, commercial and will be fun to watch for the audience," he said.

There are other areas of sports as well that the 40-year-old actor wants to explore through films.

"Besides this, there are two-three films on sports as that is my area of interest. And one is on motorcycling, that we have started scripting, the other is in space of contact sports (meaning boxing, wrestling etc)," John said.

Ask him if he would be acting in these projects the reply seems affirmative.

"I don't know that yet. I think in all probability I will be the first choice for my own production for these films. Then we will look out for others," he added.

Post the success of his two home production films 'Vicky Donor' and 'Madras Cafe' John insists he will make sure the next film will be even better.

'Madras Cafe' was a spy thriller, which traced the political and military histories of the neighbours and covered the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and Lankan rebel group LTTE's activities through the eye of an agent, played by John.

"The film did not have a typical Bollywood song, dance hero and it did half the business of a successful film. This shows there is audience who want to watch these kinds of films as well.

"This segment of audience will grow as the youth is getting more and more aware. I want to create that kind of new and entertaining cinema as a producer and actor," John said.

He says the audience has proved that they are open to see qualitative cinema.

By accepting 'Madras Cafe' they have substantiated their liking towards this space of cinema... I respect the audience. I have always said audience is my god father but today I feel they are hero of my films, he adds.

John also said that he is happy to see that the attitude of the film industry towards him has changed now.

"I think the film that began changing things was 'Force', then I had hit films like 'Desi Boyz', 'Housefull 2', 'Shootout at Wadala', 'Race 2' and now 'Madras Cafe'. I think 'Madras Cafe' has changed people's perception completely about
me... it has done a completely 360 degree turn," John said.

"People look at me in a completely different light. I would like them to know that this is how I always was... it is only that I gave myself an opportunity as a producer to do it finally," he said.

The actor-producer is busy shooting 'Welcome Back' and 'Dostana 2' and is also looking forward to begin his third production tentatively titled 'Hamara Bajaj'.
