John Abraham and Akshay Kumar have turned like the ‘brand ambassadors’ of all the patriotic films in B’Town, at least according to the netizens. Time and again, upon every subject related to the country is raised, one assumes that it will be either of the actors playing the lead. Now, the Pagalpanti actor is opening up about the same, and says all the different kind of films only go to Ayushmann Khurrana these days!
John Abraham is currently busy promoting his upcoming comedy-drama, Pagalpanti, which consists of an ensemble cast of Arshad Warsi, Anil Kapoor, Urvashi Rautela, Pulkit Samrat, Kriti Kharbanda amongst others. During one of the interviews, John was asked about what he has to say on people linking or stereotyping him and Akshay Kumar to every patriotic film that maybe possibly be made.
To this, in a conversation with Pinkvilla, the actor replied, “A lot of people say Ayushmann makes the best choices in films. Fantastic choices, like Bala, Dream Girl and others. But do you also know that the different kind of films only go to Ayushmann today? So what I am saying is the patriotic film might just come to Akshay or me, sometimes you don’t go to a film, it just comes to you. Akshay and I have had a laugh about this also. It doesn’t affect us. I think it is great especially at the time when the feeling of being Indian is the highest.”
Clearly, John is giving it back to all the haters, and could it be done in any better way?
Meanwhile, Pagalpanti is produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar’s T-Series and Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak’s Panorama Studios and co-produced by Vinod Bhanushali, Shiv Chanana, Aditya Chowksey and Sanjeev Joshi.
