John Abraham: 'Shootout at Wadala will change people's ideas about me'

John Abraham in 'Shootout at Wadala' train stunt
John Abraham has said that Shootout at Wadala will change the public's view of him.

The actor-turned-producer will take on the role of real-life gangster Manye Surve in the ensemble drama.

He told The Times of India: "I think Shootout at Wadala will only do good. Positive thing for me. The film is a re-introduction of John Abraham. I am hopeful that people will see me in a different perspective. It is a very special film for me.

"For me this film is like Sanjay Dutt's Vaastav, which presented Sanjay in a different way and did wonders for him. I am hoping the same.

"We spoke to [police officer] Isaque Bagwan who gave us a lot of information. We did extensive research on Surve. He was a bodybuilder, tough and ruthless. We also met his college friends and his classmates. In 1979 to 1982 he was ruling Bombay. He did not spare his classmates."

Abraham added: "When I came in 2003, most of the underworld was cleared... There was nothing like that. I have not experienced any such thing. We deal in white money. We don't have black money as we are paid by corporate ventures. The underworld thing did not happen to me in my life and I am happy about it. I don't think it exists anymore in Bollywood."

The star recently said that his last film I, Me Aur Main was aimed mainly at women.

It was reported yesterday (April 4) that the actor will be pairing up on screen with Dostana co-star Abhishek Bachchan for a new drama.
