JOHN ABRA­HAM:

SMALL SCREEN REACHES OUT TO MORE PEO­PLE

Fiji Sun - - Showbiz - Feed­back: com.fj jy­otip@fi­jisun.

Ac­tor John Abra­ham con­sid­ers the small screen a plat­form which gives wider reach to films than the big screen it­self. “I think the small screen reaches out to far more peo­ple than the big screen does. I have no­ticed there are cer­tain films, like Force. It be­came a far big­ger film when it re­leased on tele­vi­sion than it was on screen,” John told IANS over e-mail. John’s Rocky Hand­some pre­miered on Sony Max last Sun­day, and he feels it must have got a wider reach. The ac­tor-producer says while TV mul­ti­plies the reach of con­tent by sev­eral times, the medium can’t be com­pared to cin­ema. “You can’t com­pare the two, very hon­estly. The two are to­tally dif­fer­ent ve­hi­cles and they serve their pur­poses mu­tu­ally, ex­clu­sively and in cor­re­la­tion with each other.

“So I can’t re­ally com­pare,” he said. John is cur­rently gear­ing up for the re­lease of his up­com­ing film Force 2”, which also fea­tures Son­akshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Bhasin.

The film is the se­quel to the 2011 ac­tion thriller Force di­rected by Nishikant Ka­mat. Mean­while, John Abra­ham will wrap up his up­com­ing ac­tion film

Force 2 by mid-Septem­ber, al­most two months be­fore the movie hits the­atres.

The Dishoom star is cur­rently film­ing the last leg of the Ab­hi­nay Deo-di­rected ac­tion-thriller. “I am do­ing ac­tion se­quences now. It is com­ing out fan­tas­tic,” he said. Times of In­dia
