John Abraham is all praises for his Force 2 co-star Sonakshi Sinha and is proud of her for performing challenging stunts fearlessly for the film.
John Abraham said:
“Sonakshi is very sweet. She is a fantastic co-star. One of my best co-stars, and the work that she has done in Force 2, I really like action and especially the action that she has done. This girl absolutely has got no fear,We had to jump. I asked Sonakshi if she was sure, and she said, ‘I am sure I will jump.’ So from the second floor and third floor, she jumped. I am very proud of her. Watch Force 2. Our director is very special, Abhinay Deo, who made Delhi Belly,”
‘Rocky Handsome ‘is releasing on March 25 and about the response, John said, “It’s just started but the response has been fantastic. The heartening response has been that all sections of the audience have really enjoyed it. Saying anything now will be premature but I very happy with the response.The biggest compliment that I have received is that it is your best film up till date. People have spoken about the action. They have liked the action and they said that on Indian screens, they have not seen this kind of action.We have worked very hard on the action sequences and it’s turned out to be superb,”
“It is a fantastic film. By July, we’ll complete it. And we have still got about 50 percent of the shoot left,” said John at the screening of his new film ‘Rocky Handsome’.
