Did John Abraham have a fallout with Shoojit Sircar on football biopic, ‘1911’?

Has Shoojit Sircar and John Abraham’s great friendship come to an end? The two of them not only created a sterling magic in Madras Café, easily one of John’s best films, they also produced together Shoojit’s  game-changing directorial debut  Vicky Donor and had promised each other many  promising joint ventures including a film based on a a true-life footballer titled 1911.

Five years back, 1911 was to be made with Shoojit and John Abraham as co-producers and Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead. Khurrana had even roped in his brother Aparshakti Khurrana (a national-level footballer) to be coached in football.

A pity that the project has slipped out of Shoojit’s hands. A self confessed football enthusiast he vowed to cast only real-life footballers in the film.
