It seems director Shoojit Sircar has a script ready for Johnny boy and he’s totally confident that the beefy hunk is going to love it because it’s based on Football.
It seems director Shoojit Sircar has a script ready for Johnny boy and he’s totally confident that the beefy hunk is going to love it because it’s based on Football. The director and the actor are crazy about the sport and doing a movie based on it seemed like a foregone conclusion.
But if you remember John has already done a movie based on Football before titled Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal. The film turned out to be quite a dud and it ended up scoring slings and arrows instead of goals. John fell flat on his face and how!
I hope this whole Football thing doesn’t turn out to be a li’l jinxed for the stud. The film will apparently revolve around Mohun Bagan’s triumph against East Yorkshoire Regiment in 1911. It was quite a defining moment in the history of Sports as Mohun Bagan was the first Indian team to have defeated a foreign team. Trusting Shoojit’s directorial skills, I think the filmmaker will do a great job of enlightening the audience about this historical moment through celluloid.
The only glitch and hitch, whatever you call it, is Johnny boy. He still seems to be mastering the art of how to give the right expression. And the last thing we want is the makers to transform a victorious Mohun Bagan story to a Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal kinda debacle…
