Mumbai, May 7: After the success of "Shootout At Wadala", director Sanjay Gupta will work with John Abraham again in an action-revenge saga, which he says will be totally new for the Indian screens.

Directed by Gupta, underworld crime thriller "Shootout At Wadala" revolves around gangster Manya Surve, played by John and it has opened to positive response at the box office.

"We have already found one (script), but this is not the best time to announce. Yes, we will take the 'Shootout' franchise forward, but before that John and I will be doing another film," Gupta said here Tuesday at John's residence.

"We are getting ready for that and it'll be a big action-revenge saga, something never seen on Indian screens. Hopefully, we will surpass Manya Surve," he added.

John has gifted Gupta with a Yamaha V Max as a gesture of gratitude.

"This I have done only for Sanjay because we share a special relationship. We have been in touch since the time of 'Zinda'. I would surely not do this for anyone else. I would love to gift him another bike, hopefully, if we have another hit," John said.

New Delhi: Indian actor John Abraham, who essays the role of a dreaded gangster in the upcoming crime drama 'Shootout at Wadala' believes that the film will widen the reach of his audience and prove his acting prowess.

The model-turned-actor, who started his Hindi film journey with 'Jism' in 2003, has been part of commercially successful films like 'Dhoom' and 'Dostana' but feels that its time he shifts his focus to other genres.

"I think in every actor's career there is a certain film that changes the way his life pans out. For me, 'Jism' was that first film that made the difference in my life. For me it was not made, it just happened.

"But I think there is a calling in an actor's life and 'Shootout' will increase the band width of my audiences and there will be new audiences which will come to see John Abraham," said Abraham.

'Shootout at Wadala' has been written and directed by Sanjay Gupta. It is the sequel to 2007 film 'Shootout at Lokhandwala', and is based on the book Dongri to Dubai written by Hussain Zaidi.

Besides Abraham, the film also stars Anil Kapoor, Manoj Bajpai, Kangna Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor and Sonu Sood in lead roles.

The film will dramatize the first-ever registered encounter by Mumbai police, where gangster Manya Surve (Abraham's character) was shot dead.

"Manya Surve was a gangster but we have not tried to glorify him in the film. The film is also about the love story between Surve and Kangana's character which tragic and it turns out beautifully in the film," Abraham said.

When asked how he prepared for the role, the actor said, "In terms of visuals we had just two passport size photos including one of his body after the encounter, which was totally bullet ridden body. We met a few people including police officers, who were part of the encounter."

'Shootout at Wadala' is slated for release on May 3.

With the sensational news about the dazzling cameos of Priyanka Chopra, Sunny Leone and Sophie Choudry in ‘Shootout At Wadala’, having created a splash, the film’s fourth female dimension comes in the form of the heroine, Kangana Ranaut.

Kangana plays the role of Vidya who is Manya Surve’s (John Abraham) love interest. While there is no mention of Vidya in S. Hussain Zaidi’s best-seller ‘Dongri To Dubai’ (from which a part of the film has been inspired), director Sanjay Gupta learnt of her existence through his interaction with the Police while researching the film.

Reveals Sanjay, “The Police know about Vidya. So do the residents of Mumbai’s Dadar and Agar Bazaar areas where she is folklore. Many believe that she betrayed Manya, which led to his encounter. No one knows what happened to her after Manya’s death.”

On his decision to cast Kangana, he adds, “The role of Vidya was written originally with Vidya Balan in mind, as we needed a powerhouse actress to pull off the film’s emotional dimension. When it didn’t work out, we opted for Kangana, as she is a fantastic actress. She has really stood her own amid the men in the film and delivered a knock-out performance.”

Interestingly, Kangana’s de-glam cotton-sari look, make-up and hair have been styled on the lines of Shabana Azmi’s character from ‘Arth’. Concludes Gupta, “She’s done something she hasn’t done before.”
