John Abraham has been honoured with Pride of the Nation award for exploring the story behind India’s former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination in Madras Cafe. The award was presented to the actor by Anti Terrorist Front’s chairman M S Bitta.
The movie which revolves around the sensitive issues like the Sri Lankan civil war portrays John in the role of RAW agent. Despite the movie being banned in certain cities, Madras Cafe managed to break the clutter of commercial films and emerged as a hit.
And now being inspired by real life patriotic stories, John also has future plans to make a movie on Abdul Hamid who was awarded with the Param Vir Chakra for his courage during the 1965 Indo-Pak war.
