Mysskin to Direct John Abhraham

Mysskin’s Yuddham Sei which has Cheran playing a CB-CID officer  along side debutant Dipa Shah in the lead, is nearing completion and sources close to the film’s unit say that the shooting for the film is over. The film will be ready to hit screens soon and  while Cheran has started work on Muran,his next project with Prasanna.

Mysshkins will soon be making his big Bollywood debut with a John Abraham film. This still-untitled Bollywood film is being produced by UTV Motion Pictures and has John Abraham playing the lead. “Bringing John on board did not happen all of a sudden. I have been interacting with him for quite some time now,”Says Mysshkin

 “It would be a full-on action film in which the story happens over 12 hours. John watched my earlier Tamil film Anjathey on DVD, to get to know more about my style of filmmaking and he was very impressed. He called me to Mumbai to narrate the script and once he listened to it, he fell in love with the role and decided to go ahead.” added the director.

Mysshkin gives an assurance that this would not be a remake of his Tamil hit, but a fresh script. To an enquiry about whether John asked him to make any changes in the theme to make it more commercial, he was quick to respond, “Oh, no. It is an out-and-out action film. So the question doesn’t arise. All the same, I hardly watch Hindi movies, which I guess, is a blessing in disguise. I will stick to my story and whatever it demands will be scrupulously incorporated.”

As for the heroine selection, he said no leading lady had been finalised yet. He was still fine-tuning the script and in all probability, the movie would go on the floors in January 2011.
