A few months back, it had been reported that John Abraham is planning to produce a film based on the life of legendary wrestler Gama Pehelwan, in which he would play the lead role too.
However, it now seems that John has decided to put the project in cold storage. The reason- Salman recently played a wrestler in his last release Sultan and Aamir will also be seen playing a wrestler in Dangal, because of which John feels that a third film on a wrestler would be a big mistake. Confirming the news, John said that he has decided to not go ahead with the film on Great Gama at this point of time. Meanwhile, we have heard that John is gearing up to star in a biopic on Hawa Singh, a soldier-turned-boxer, who had trained boxers like Vijender Singh, Akhil Kumar and others.
John will be next seen playing a cop in Rohit Dhawan’s Dishoom, which also stars Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez.
