Afer Parmanu, John Abraham is all set with his upcoming movie Satyameva Jayate which is going to clash with Akshay Kumar starrer Gold on August 15. John Abraham said that the two films can release on the same day as the stories are different.
Three films are going to clash on the box office this independence day - Satyameva Jayate, Gold and Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se, which stars Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, and Bobby Deol.
John at the trailer launch of Satyameva Jayate said "Akshay is a friend, I wish him the best. Two films can release on the same day as both the films are of different genres,".
On this Director Milap Zaveri also said, "I wish Gold all the best. I wish and hope all the films that are releasing on August 15 get a positive response and do good business."
Talking about the film John said Satyameva Jayate is a commercial entertainer with patriotism at its core.
"We have spoken about patriotism, corruption. This is an unfiltered commercial film. It has everything from drama to action," he said.
John Abraham and Akshay Kumar are the two actors in Bollywood who are focusing more on movies based on patriotism. The two actors have also worked together in films like Garam Masala, Housefull 2 and Desi Boyz.
When asked if there is a healthy competition between him and Akshay, John said, "I do films that I like in terms of script. I enjoyed making Parmanu and I like this space. I am doing RAW and then I have Batla House.
"It depends on what you want to do at that point of time. Each actor is entitled to choose what they want to do next. Akshay is doing a comedy film next," John said.John Abraham has once again collaborated in Satyameva Jayate with actor Manoj Bajpayee after Shootout at Wadala.
Praising Bajpayee as an "institution of acting", the Parmanu actor said, "He is one of the greatest actors we have in Hindi cinema. Sharing screen time with him is special. For people like me, working with Manoj Bajpayee is like watching a film."
Praising John Abraham and the film Satyameva Jayate, Bajpayee said, "We have worked together and it was a great experience. The attitude of people changes Friday to Friday, but John has remained the same.
"That is why he has come so far and achieved so much. We talk about nepotism and all, here is John Abraham who has been part of the good and successful film as an outsider. I feel that nicety and hard work never fails."
