The actor-producer has apparently roped in director Abhishek Sharma of ‘The Shaukeens’ fame to helm a rather serious film.
Reportedly, titled Shantivaan, the film is said to be an action drama revolving around a hard hitting and gripping subject of nuclear bombs. Apparently, the film is based on real life nuclear tests especially on the second Indian nuclear test done in India – Pokhran II.
It is the series of five nuclear bomb test explosions conducted by India at the Indian Army’s Pokhran Test Range in May 1998. It was the second Indian nuclear test; the first test, code-named Smiling Buddha, was conducted in May 1974.
It is being said that Abhishek had approached John with the script and the actor loved it. However the casting and other details are yet to be finalized and it is to be seen if John too will play a prominent role in the film or no.
