John Abraham is playing the lead role in Anees Bazmee’s upcoming film Pagalpanti and the director recently revealed how he zeroed in on John to play the protagonist.
Bazmee, who has previously worked with John in Welcome Back, said, “The cast is really special because I have worked with Anil Kapoor in so many films. This would be my eleventh film with him. Also, I have earlier worked with John Abraham in Welcome Back (2015). In that film, he hardly had two comedy scenes. His expressions in those scenes were so impressive that back then, I had told him that one day I would like to direct him in a full-fledged comic role. When I approached him for this film, he said that he was really fond of comedy movies and was keen to do something like this.’’
Pagalpanti also stars Ileana DCruz, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Kriti Kharbanda, Urvashi Rautela and Saurabh Shukla among others.
