John Abraham is the first shirtless gangster of Bollywood!
Sanjay Gupta’s upcoming film Shootout At Wadala promises to be a high octane action flick about the Mumbai underworld. John Abraham will play the role of protagonist Manya Surve and will also be the first shirtless gangster of Bollywood.
Sanjay said at the launch of the first look: “This is will be the first shirtless don. You will not get to see anyone else like this in Bollywood. No one will be able to compete with him (John).”
John Abarham also put an action-filled performance at the promotional event.
Asked if there will be item numbers in the film, the director said that Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra have been approached for them.
“There are not three but four item numbers. We have approached few of them. But it’s in the process and it will be wrong to name anyone,” he said.
The film also stars Anil Kapoor, Kangna Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor, Manoj Bajpayee and Sonu Sood.
When John was asked about how he found sharing screen space with Manoj Bajpayee, he said: “He is a good co-star and an excellent actor. He has given many good inputs in the film.”
This first look of the film had an innovative promotional activity as it was launched simultaneously in five different cities – Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Lucknow.
