John Abraham to do a political thriller!

John Abraham will soon be seen in a political thriller about LTTE’s activities in Sri Lanka, the movie being titled Jaffna. The film will be directed by Shoojit Sircar. John will co-produce the film.

“John is a politically aware actor. He reads the newspaper every morning, knows what’s going on in the world. He is clued in to the dynamics of the separatist strife in Sri Lanka. The minute I told him about my film ‘Jaffna’, he was on board,” said Sircar.

John will have to make a few trips to Sri Lanka, to get a hang of the political situation in the country.

“I am no stranger to themes of separatism and extremist violence. My first film ‘Yahaan’ was about Kashmiri separatism. And now ‘Jaffna’ would be carrying the theme of extremism to another extreme,” said Sircar.

The director is not willing to talk much about John’s character in the film. However, he says that the actor will have to work very hard to live upto the film’s story.
