Bollywood actor-producer John Abraham is busy shooting his next ‘Rocky Handsome’ but says he will make sure to squeeze time out of his schedule and catch all the action of the FIFA World Cup, which will kick off on June 12 in Brazil.
John, 41, a football enthusiast himself, will interact and analyse matches with some of the greatest legends of football on Sony Pix Primetime show- Cafe Rio.
“I am shooting ‘Rocky Handsome’ in Hyderabad. I don’t think I will be able to go to Brazil to catch all the action. I cannot be complaining because I am the producer of the film. However, I am really excited to be a part of Cafe Rio. It is a great platform where you can see me interact and analyse matches with some of the greatest legends of football,” John told PTI.
‘Rocky Handsome’ has been produced by John’s production house JA Entertainment in collaboration with Sunir Kheterpal’s Azure Entertainment. It is the remake of popular Korean film’s ‘The Man from Nowhere’.
The ‘Madras Cafe’ star said that he will be joined by footballers Peter Crouch, Robbie Fowler, Peter Shilton, Mikael Silvestre, Ellyse Perry and Sunil Chhetri.
“It is going to be great and I am looking forward to interacting and discussing football with international greats as well as Sunil, who is the captain of Indian football team and also a very good friend of mine,” he said.
