John Abraham entered the world of glamour as a model almost 20 years ago. Since then, he has come a long way in his journey of films. John has played a wide range of characters on screen and given a number of hit films to the industry and the audiences. Back in 2012, he also turned a producer with ‘Vicky Donor’ which was a completely offbeat film. His following films as a producer have also been out of the ordinary.
In the recent past, John Abraham has opted for more patriotic roles such as in ‘Madras Cafe’, he played Major Vikram Singh. In his more recently released film ‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’ under the banner of his production house JA Entertainment, he played Captain Ashwat Rana.
‘Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran’ has earned rave reviews from all the fronts and now John is all set to present another out of the ordinary story with his upcoming film ‘Satyamev Jayate’. Though the film has landed trouble with Shia community who has lodged a complaint against the film for hurting their religious sentiments, it is definitely going to be an interesting watch.
John Abraham’s interest in offbeat characters got revealed yet again recently when the actor said that he wanted to portray a popular yet controversial historical figure of India. Recently, in an interview with Bollywood Hungama, the actor said that he wants to play the character of Nathuram Godse.
Nathuram Godse was a right-wing advocate of Hindu nationalism who has assassinated Mahatma Gandhi on January 30, 1948, in New Delhi. He had shot Gandhi three times in the chest at point-blank range. Eventually, he was sentenced to death and hanged at Ambala Central Jail on November 15, 1949.
John Abraham thinks that portraying Mahatma Gandhi would be regular but if he portrays Nathuram Godse, then “it’s a film by JA Entertainment”. Isn’t that intriguing? He talked about a lot more stuff and you can watch the part of his interview here.
