Attack, which releases on Friday, April 1, will see John Abraham as India’s first ‘tremendous soldier’.

“I consider that motion is not about six packs and physique. It’s about the depth in your eyes,” John tells Rediff.com Contributor Sameena Razzaq.

The first of a two-part riveting interview:

You are so good at motion and you’ve got a bankable fame as a producer. What, in accordance with you, is your area of interest?

I feel I’ve carved my area of interest as a producer that makes completely different movies, be it Vicky Donor, Madras Cafe, Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran or Batla House.

I’m certain nobody anticipated something from Attack until they noticed the teaser.

When they noticed the teaser, they have been like wow, here is an fascinating story.

I feel I like doing motion.

Action is second nature to me, however it solely works whether it is conceptually completely different or there’s a stunning emotion connected to it.

To reply your query, I would really like folks to consider in JA Entertainment.

They ought to say ‘arre yaar, yeh John Abraham ka manufacturing hai, thoda alag banayega woh.’

This ought to come throughout and if it does not, it might imply I’m nonetheless battling.

I would like folks to say take a look at the observe report of the movies I’ve made.

What are your expectations from Attack?

I’m not in the business of hard-selling crap.

Every movie has act one, act two, act three…

In Attack, the first half is organising the movie and the different half is the climax. It is one hour and 46 minutes.

My director (Lakshya Raj Anand) could be very younger. He is 30 years outdated.

He mentioned, ‘John, I do not need anyone in the cinema halls to choose up their telephones and get distracted. I would like the movie to be so quick and completely different that folks immediately get hooked.’

Hopefully, he has achieved that.

My music director Shashwat Sachdev can also be very younger. He is 28 years outdated.

Sashwat composed the music first after which we shot the movie on that music.

So this movie is made in a different way. It’s not like your common movie.

Attack is the first of many movies the place I gave full freedom to my director, music director, sound designer, motion director and set designer to create no matter they wished to.

I feel it is all come collectively actually well.

Is Attack 2 in the pipeline already?

We have an concept prepared. We do not know after we will begin, truthfully.

The solely purpose why we put half one was my choice as a result of once I noticed the finish of the movie, I felt like yaar, iska second hona chahiye.

It’s not like we’re making half two.

At this level of time, we’re solely concentrating on Attack.

We wish to develop half two however presently, we now have no actors in thoughts and no timeline.

Right now, there are specific set of topics I’m dedicated to.

My subsequent is a movie referred to as Tehran. It’s very near my coronary heart as a result of I like that geo-political area. It’s very Madras Cafe, Batla House based mostly.

It’s very heavy on stunning content material, in the Sicario meet Syriana area.

It’s a really arduous core political factor, however it’s obtained a degree of motion which needs to be wise.

You mentioned in an interview that the majority motion heroes do not know motion. Is that basically the case?

I’ll inform you what I meant.

Action heroes are so proficient in motion, however what makes motion heroes is their angle. I imply that.

I consider that motion is not about six packs and physique. It’s about the depth in your eyes.

When you look throughout the board, the most profitable motion heroes are the guys who’ve an incredible angle, not only a physique.

Is Attack a rehash of movies like Avengers, Universal Soldier, Robocop, Upgrade, Iron Man and so on?

Attack is an amalgamation of many movies, however it’s a story that’s distinctive to India.

It is a narrative about what’s occurring with DRDO, so there’s a lot of credibility.

Like Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran and Batla House you will note a publish script in Attack.

We have made a business entertainer, however there’s some factuality in it.

Yes, probably we now have been impressed by movies like Robocop, Upgrade, Universal Soldier and Iron Man and lots of extra, however we wished to create our personal tremendous soldier.
