The year 1999, Aamir Khan teamed up with director John Matthew Matthan and the result was Sarfarosh. However, post that John has only directed two films, Shikhar (2005) starring Ajay Devgn, Shahid Kapoor and Bipasha Basu and A New Love Ishtory (2013) starring Himesh Reshammiya, Raqesh Bapat and Niharika Singh, both of which have been Box Office disasters.
Recently, John Matthew Matthan has teamed up with John Abraham for Sarfarosh 2 in which he is set to reprise ACP Ajay Singh Rathod, the character that was previously done by Aamir Khan. Sarfarosh opened to critical acclaim and went on to win the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment.
Sarfarosh was one of the biggest hits of 1999 and starred Aamir Khan, Naseeruddin Shah and Sonali Bendre in the lead roles. Now director John Matthew Matthan will be working on Sarfarosh 2 and John Abraham has confirmed that he will be stepping into the shoes of Aamir Khan for this project.
“John Mathew Matthan and I are co-producing the film. We are still working on the script, but, yes, the film is happening for sure. We plan to go on floors next year. He is probably the only director whose house I went to after seeing Sarfarosh,” stated John who is all set to turn producer for a Marathi film titled, Savita Damodar Paranjape.
According to John, he is geared up for the action-drama, which will be different from the original. He is in fact very excited to reprise the role. He is a big Aamir Khan fan and is ready to take on the challenge.
John Abraham was recently seen in Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran and is now all set for Satyameva Jayate, which is slated to release on August 10. 2018. He is also a part of Nikkhil Advani’s Batla House, which is about the Batla House operation, followed by Romeo Akbar Walter – RAW, which is being directed by Robbie Grewal.
As far as Sarfarosh is concerned, the film had dealt with cross-border terrorism and it reportedly took the filmmakers seven years of research to make the film.
Here’s wishing team Sarfarosh 2 all the best.
