John Abraham likely to work opposite Hollywood actress Liv Tyler
The lure of the west is quite irresistible for our bollywood brigade, after several stars like Ash and Sush trying their hand in Hollywood; it’s now the turn of hunk John Abraham to try his luck. John’s film with Deepa Mehta ‘Water’ has received a lot of appreciation in the West and according to sources now the actor is being considered to play a role opposite ‘Lord of The Rings’ Hollywood beauty Liv Tyler. Sources claim that John is being considered for the role of a Mexican in a film tentatively titled ‘The Bad and The Avon’.
John is being considered for the role due to his international appeal and look. However John has not yet confirmed the news right now, as things are still being worked out. We hope that this is not one of those projects which is only talked about but never takes off. Hopefully John will make his presence felt in Western Cinema too. John is extremely happy with the response that his film ‘Kabul Express’ received during the Toronto International Film Festival.
John will also be doing a film directed by Nagesh Kukunoor in association with Percept Picture Company. Percept and Nagesh have joined hands and will be doing two more films with Nagesh after Dor. The film has been titled ‘Aashayein’ and will star John Abraham in a pivotal role. Nagesh is known to make his brand of films which have a more realistic theme to them and he is also known to prefer working with talented actors and not superstars. However Nagesh claims that he has seen some of John’s films and that John fits the role completely. Also John has the available dates that Nagesh is looking for. Perhaps by roping in John, Nagesh is now trying to woo commercial and mainstream cinema after having received critical appreciation for his films.
John will be seen playing the role of a gambler who discovers a new meaning of life after he realizes he has only ninety days to live. He finds a new meaning to fortune and life through certain events that take place in his life. Currently John is waiting for the release of his film Kabul Express. The film is a docu-drama by Kabir Khan and has been shot in Afghanistan; while shooting the film John even received death threats and later John even developed an infection and had to be hospiatalised while shooting. The film also stars Arshad Warsi.
