John Abraham to star in Rensil D'Silva's untitled biker film
Produced by Ajay Kapoor’s Kyta Productions, the untitled film will go on floors in July.
Fifteen years after Dhoom (2004), John Abraham will be seen in another biker film, directed by Rensil D’Silva. Produced by Ajay Kapoor’s Kyta Productions, the untitled film will go on floors in July.
“A story around motorcycles is very close to my heart. This is a story about human relationships,” says John, adding, “I decided to develop a film on riders and their love for motorcycles in-house two years ago. A lot of research and time has been spent on the subject since then.”
Rensil D’Silva says, “I’ve grown up on films like Days of Thunder and Top Gun, and it’s a dream come true to make an adrenaline pumping, emotionally charged bike racing film like this with John.”
Ajay Kapoor adds, “I know how passionate John is about motorbikes. It has been a pleasure collaborating with him and his production company so far on all our projects, and it will be an absolute treat to see him play a biker now.”
The film’s action scenes will be shot in Isle of Man, home of the International Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) motorsport event.
Technical Consultant on the film is Peter Duke, head of the motorsport video company Duke Video, whose father was a six-time World Motorcycle Champion and six-time TT winner. “We’re delighted to be working with John and the team, and to see how the cinematographers portray the spectacle and thrill of this mind-blowing sport to Indian audiences. I think they will be impressed,” says Peter.
