John Abraham to star in sequel of 1999-superhit Sarfarosh?
MUMBAI: Aamir Khan’s superhit flick of 1999, Sarfarosh, is set to have its second installment, and John Abraham is likely to play the role of ACP Ajay Singh Rathod (which was played by Aamir Khan in Sarfarosh).
According to Mid-Day, film director John Matthew Matthan has approached John Abraham for the lead role and that the film will focus on the Naxal movement in India. “Abraham and Matthan are in advance talks for the film.
The sequel will revolve around the Naxal movement and red corridor in India. The first installment touched upon this topic in passing. There is a possibility that it will take off from there,” the report says.
When John Matthew Matthan was asked about his plans of casting John Abraham in the lead role, the director did not reveal much about the film’s cast and he told mid-day: “I am scripting Sarfarosh 2 now, but it is too early to give out any details. We are in talks with a few actors. I can’t confirm the cast.”
Sarfarosh 2 is expected to go on floors after John Abraham wraps up his prior commitments. As of now, the team is looking for production houses to back the venture.”
Sarfarosh was also directed by John Matthew Matthan. The film featured veteran actors such as Aamir Khan, Sonali Bendre and Naseeruddin Shah in pivotal roles. The film showcased a police officer’s journey to cease cross-border terrorism.
The action-thriller emerged as a hit and it received massive appreciation from the audience as well as critics.
