John Abraham miffed with Blue director
John Abraham is blue alright; the actor isnít taking nicely to Anthony Dísouzaís public claims to have approached him for his next two films. After the first week collections of Blue, the filmmakers went on to tag the disaster of a film as a boxoffice hit. However critics and audiences say otherwise. To distract the attention newbie director Anthony Dísouza went on to announce his next two films, one being the sequel to Blue and one being Aerial, a film sources say loosely based on the Tom Cruise starrer Top Gun. However what miffed the rather cool and calm actor was when Anthony claimed that he had zeroed in on John for both the roles.
A source close to John reveals, ďJohn didnít take it well at all, while he has utmost respect for any director whatsoever, he was angry that Anthony told the media that John would be a part of his next two films. Which however is completely untrue and he was upset that Anthony would want to gain publicity by making such a claim. He later on spoke to Anthony about it and the director apologised in return. John only believes in the power of a script and not cheap publicity, considering Blue wasnít well-received by the audience, he knows what to keep in mind before accepting a film.Ē John recently confirmed to the press saying, ĎI have immense respect for Anthony and the fact that he wants to work with me.
However, I am neither doing any film titled Aerial nor any underwater film. I am also not doing Blue 2.íWhen StarBoxOffice contacted Anthony Dísouza about the same, he replied, ďAt the moment I am going through scripts and had only thought of making the sequel to Blue and Aerial. However that wasnít set in stone and as far as John goes, I had hoped to star him in my forthcoming film but havenít approached him or spoken to him as of yet. I will do that when I zero down on a good script or story.Ē If thatís the case we wonder why the hue and cry for eh!
