Bollywood actor John Abraham’s love for bike is known by all. John’s fans praised his stunning biker avatar in Dhoom. And now he is ready to take his passion to the silver screen with his next project.
He has teamed up with Ajay Kapoor of Kyta Productions to co-produce a biker movie that will be directed by Rensil D’Silva and will go on floors in the coming months.
The untitled film will be John’s third tie-up with Ajay Kapoor who has previously co-produced John’s hit Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran (2018) and the upcoming espionage thriller RAW (Romeo Akbar Walter).
Today John shared some photos with the producer and director of his upcoming biker film on his Instagram. In the post he also revealed that the shoot for the biker flick will begin this year.
He captioned the pictures as, “A story that is close to my heart. Excited to kick start this journey with @ajay_kapoor_ and director #RensilDSilva. Shoot begins July 2019. @johnabrahament @kytaproductions.”
The film is currently in its pre-production stage and the shooting will start in July 2019.
In a press statement John said, “A story around motorcycles is very close to my heart. This is a story about human relationships. I decided to develop a film on riders and their love for motorcycles in-house two years ago. A lot of research and time has been spent on the subject since then. I’m happy to have Ajay Kapoor and Rensil on board for this project. I am especially excited that we will film the action sequences in the Isle of Man, the home of racing on real roads!”
Laurence Skelly, Enterprise Minister of the Isle of Man Government, commented, “The Isle of Man is the home of road racing and, whilst the TT is what we are principally known for, we also have a rich series of annual races on our roads which draws crowds from around the world. We are pleased to welcome this interest in our Island and the proposals build on both our motorcycling heritage and our strong pedigree as a stunning location for TV and film. We look forward to John Abraham’s film presenting the Isle of Man to the vast Indian cinema audience for the first time.”
Director Rensil D’Silva said, “I’ve grown up on films like Days of Thunder and Top Gun and it’s a dream come true to make an adrenaline pumping, emotionally charged bike racing film like this with John.”
Co-producer of the film Ajay Kapoor said, “I know how passionate John is about motorbikes. It has been a pleasure collaborating with him and his production company so far on all our projects, and it will be an absolute treat to see him play a biker now! We look forward to our other collaborations with him in future too.”
John is currently waiting for the release of his upcoming film RAW- Romeo Akbar Walter where he will be seen as spy. The film will also feature actor Jackie Shroff, Sikander Kher and Mouni Roy.
