My body turned black-n- blue during training: John Abraham

Mumbai : The trailer of much-awaited Nishikant Kamath directorial ‘Rocky Handsome’ has been released today in Mumbai where John Abraham, who plays the lead, said that training for the action shots in the movie turned his body into black and blue, but he feels the pain paid off.

“My body turned black and blue during training, but it paid off,” he said.

John added that the action scenes were real without usage of any VFX.

A huge fan of Sylvester Stallone, John feels himself to be an underdog like the American actor as he has not yet arrived in the film industry.

He also expressed his disappointment over Stallone’s miss out at the Oscars this year.

“I was disappointed when Sylvester Stallone missed out on Oscars,’ he said.

The whole team of ‘Rocky Handsome’, excluding the leading lady Shruti Haasan, was present for the trailer launch event.

Speaking about Shruti presently shooting for her upcoming movie in London, John clarified, “Shruti has a special appearance in the film.”

‘ Rocky Handsome,’ which also stars Nathalia Kaur, Nishikant Kamath, Nora Fatehi, Divya Chalwad, and Sharad Kelkar, is an official remake of 2010 Korean film ‘The Man from Nowhere.’ The film, which marks the acting debut of Nishikant Kamath, is slated to release on March 25. (ANI)
