John opens up on clash with Akshay at box office
John Abraham's "Satyameva Jayate" and Akshay Kumar's "Gold" will face-off at the box-office this Independence Day but the "Madras Cafe" star says the love the duo shares would stay the same. John will be back on screen after his recent hit "Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran" with director Milap Zaveri's thriller "Satyameva Jayate", while Akshay will be seen in Reema Kagti's sports drama "Gold".
Release of films is a producer's decision, says John
"Akshay is an actor in 'Gold' and I am an actor in 'Satyameva Jayate'. So that (the release of films) is a producer decision, between Excel Entertainment and T-Series," John said when asked about the clash. "Akshay is my senior, I love him and have always wished the best for him. I am sure he will also want the same for me," he added.
John Abraham hopes Parmanu gets him a National Award
When asked how he would react if "Parmanu" finds a spot at next year's National Film Awards, John said he also hopes the film makes it to the prestigious tally. He, however, added, "But, it's too early to talk about our chances of winning a National Award. We are not overconfident. We think we will deserve whatever the jury decides for our film."
Three exciting new movies set to release on August 15
The duo has worked together in films such as "Garam Masala", "Desi Boyz" and "Housefull 2". Besides, "Satyameva Jayate" and "Gold", "Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se" will also release on August 15.
