Let's glorify our brave soldiers: John Abraham

Friday, March 08, 2019

Macho actor John Abraham said on Monday that his upcoming film is not a chest-thumping nationalist project and he himself would like to stay away from jingoistic movies.

Directed by Robbie G the espionage thriller chronicles the story of a spy who goes to Pakistan.

"It's very important to make films with good stories. If tomorrow, there's a great patriotic film, I would love to do it. But I would not like to do jingoistic films. I am not anti any other country, I am not anti any other religion.

"I'm very pro-secular and I would like to make films that reflect the true nature of this country," John told reporters here.

The actor said the film looks at people from an objective gaze and doesn't colour anyone with judgements.

"Romeo Akbar Walter  a very objective film. No one is bad or good in this, it's just how you look at things. We are not depicting any other side as the bad side. It's a story of a spy who goes across, but it's a different story than 'Raazi' or many of the other stories”

"It's not jingoistic, typical flag saluting film. It's very different and that's why we are proud to be associated with it." Directed by Robbie G the espionage thriller chronicles the story of a spy who goes to Pakistan. John said the project's key requirement was "extreme research" and the team did just that as it's a sensitive topic and there's a sense of responsibility riding on them.

The actor, however, said there's nothing wrong in making films about war heroes.

"If you look at Hollywood, it makes fantastic war films and they glorify their brave soldiers, so why can't we? I think it's a great time for India, the audience."
