John Abraham gets lean for Madras Cafe.
Bollywood’s quintessential poster boy ,John Abraham, known for his ripped and chiseled body will now be seen sporting a leaner frame, to get into the skin of his character, essaying the role of special agent, against an indo-country backdrop in Viacom Motion Pictures,JA Entertainment and Rising Sun Film’s political thriller,Madras Cafe.
Since the actor had to play an intelligence officer,
sporting a body which was more real and naturally lean as opposed to a bulked-up body,John adopted a special diet and fitness routine to look the part.
Says director Shoojit Sircar, “ Yes audiences will see a leaner John Abraham since I didn’t want him to particularly stand out in a crowd , he needed to look like one of them.Hats off to his dedication since he worked really hard on his physique for the film”.
Talking about the warm equation he shares with his film’s lead,adds the director, “John and I are good friends…We have similar vision when it comes to films and are planning a few more together – We do not interfere in each other’s space and enjoy working together”.
Says producer and actor John Abraham, “Madras Cafe has been my dream project and we've been in discussions for years over the subject – We’ve worked extremely hard on the film and are satisfied with the outcome – What I can assure you is audiences will be talking about the film even after they've stepped out of the theater..it is a high-on-content, thought provoking film”.
Presented by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and JA Entertainment and produced by Rising Sun Films and JA Entertainment , Madras Cafe ,directed by Shoojit Sircar is scheduled to release 23rd August 2013.
