John Abraham won everyone’s heart by his spectacular performance in the last released Parmanu. And, the actor will be upcoming with another flick titled as Satyameva Jayate but one thing about the film is very high, highlighting that is its clash with Gold. Regarding clash with Akshay Kumar’s Gold with whom he has worked in films like Garam Masala, Desi Boyz, Housefull 2 and Dishoom, he said:

“Akshay is a friend and I will only hope that Gold does well. I love him and he feels the same. We are not so close but we speak generally also. We have the same lifestyle and on screen we have the same physicality. We are happy throwing each other around. When we meet we love spending a lot of time with each other and hopefully we work with each other soon. I love the comedies I did with him. I saw Garam Masala recently and felt it was really funny. It was simple and not adult. I would like to do something like that now, or even something like Housefull.”

John talking about his upcoming film Satyameva Jayate said, “It is a cat and mouse kind of a story. It is filmy and fun. It has got dialoguebaazi, action, romance and drama. A pure commercial film is a rarity today and Satyameva is just that.”

“But it has underlying issues like corruption, degeneration of society with women, children, animals being targeted. You want to hit people who are responsible for this, you want that angst out and my character does just that. So, Satyameva becomes that aspirational film,” John further adds.

John is very open to taking the risk and this is the reason why he worked with, SMJ director, Milap Zaveri, “It doesn’t matter to me. Abhishek Sharma had Shaukeen before I did Parmanu with him, Shoojit Sircar had Yahaan before I did Vicky Donor and Madras Café with him, Kabir Khan was a war documentary filmmaker before I did Kabul Express and New York for him. I don’t go by people’s track record, I have no fear,” he says.

The Parmanu actor added, “I understand that today’s young crop of actors only want to work with A-list directors because outside of them, they are scared that they will fail. Without the top-line directors they will fail, I can guarantee you. They don’t want to work with regular directors. Even as a producer I have no fear of failure because my content is strong and I know that a good director will manage to pull it off. The only actors who will work with new directors are Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. These two will work with anybody and everybody.”
