Mumbai: Bollywood actor John Abraham is all set to enter the Marathi film industry as a producer with a film which will go on floors next year.
The “Dishoom” actor has roped in director Swapna Waghmare Joshi, who has currently helmed “Fugay”.
“I am doing my first (Marathi) production with Swapna. We are hopefully starting in March. It is a fantastic script. I am really lucky to be working with her. I am very excited for that,” the actor told reporters here last night.
John said the Marathi film industry is coming out with top quality content, something which the Hindi film industry should learn.
“Marathi cinema is the most superior cinema today. I just hope it doesn’t reach a point where it starts getting corrupted. We need to see the balance, though this happens in every industry…,” he said.
“Hindi films should learn from Marathi, even Malayalam films, because the content in their films is far superior than ours. We need to borrow this kind of talent to make great cinema in Hindi,” the actor said.
He was speaking at the trailer launch of the Marathi film “Fugay”.
The movie stars Swwapnil Joshi and Subodh Bhave in lead roles. “Fugay” is scheduled to release this December.
