John Abraham undergoes 12 day action workshop for Rocky Handsome

John Abraham“>

What’s with these bone-crunching actioners on Gandhi Jayanti? In 2013, it was the Ranbir Kapoor starrer Besharam. In 2014, it was Hrithik Roshan‘s Bang Bang. Now for Gandhi Jayanti 2015, it’s the stylish John Abraham actioner Rocky Handsome.

Laughs the director Nishikant Kamat, “I don’t know if Gandhiji would approve. But we’ve tried to make a film that takes the action genre in Hindi to another level.”

John Abraham, who is keen to be a new kind of action hero, attended a 12-day action workshop in Bangkok to get the stunts right.

Says Kamat, “I’ve done one kind of action with John in Force. No we’re doing another kind in Rocky Handsome. The idea is to take the action genre in Bollywood to another level. Here the action will be in a very authentic space. Audiences will actually wince when a blow is dealt.”

Kamat is a highly original creator. Yet he continues to be saddled with remakes.

Laughs the director, “I admit Rocky Handsome is a remake of a Korean film. But so different from the original. Likewise when I remade Force with John I completely re-wrote the script. Somewhere I feel I become attached to a film and then want to give it my own interpretation.”
