Mumbai: Bollywood actor John Abraham’s film “Force 2” is all set to release on Friday and he believes it is an “important and legitimate film” in the country’s current situation.
“I think ‘Force 2’ is an important film for India right now. It is the first legitimate film after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to demonetise Rs 500 and 1,000 currency notes. It’s a game-changing film,” he said.
John, who is reprising his role of ACP Yashvardhan was speaking to media during the promotional interview on Thursday.
“After US Presidential election and demonetisation, people want some relief and ‘Force 2’ will bring a break for them. I would like to say all, that come and enjoy the movie,” he added.
Sonakshi, his co-star in “Force 2”, seconds him.
She said: “It is a coincidence that our film matches the current situation perfectly. Although we started to make this film one and half years ago, the film talks about many issues that reflect today’s society but not in a preachy way.”
“The film has been inspired from some true stories. ‘Force 2’ is a gripping and intense film,” she added.
Producer Vipul Shah feels that ‘cash shortage’ would not affect much to the movie as there are many ‘cashless offers’ to book tickets.
“There is so much stress on people and ‘Force 2’ will give the audience a break and help them de-stress. With this hope, we are bringing this film on the scheduled date,” he said.
Sonakshi feels demonetisation has affected everything including films but the entire team is hoping for the best.
“We are positive. We made a good film and very proud of it. It is not a matter of numbers but a good film is releasing. So whoever can afford should definitely go,” she said.
