Akshay Kumar and John Abraham have worked in several movies together such as Desi Boyz, Housefull 2 and Garam Masala. Through the years, they have maintained a pretty strong bond. Speaking at the success party of Parmanu — The Story Of Pokhran, he had been asked how he feels about the box office conflict with his buddy Akshay. “Akshay is a celebrity in Gold, and I am a celebrity in Satyameva Jayate. That is a film maker’s decision. It is about Excel Entertainment and T-Series, so I don’t have any say in that whatsoever. So far as competing with Akshay is concerned, I wish to make it clear that he is my older in the industry. I like him, and I have always wished the best for him, and I am certain that he’ll also want the best for me,” John stated.
The dream that united our nation,
The dream that began in 1936,
The dream that took 12 years to become a reality.

Since Parmanu is doing well and has resonated with the audience, John Abraham and manager Abhishek Sharma were asked when they’re expecting a National Award. John said,”We hope we make it into the National Awards. I believe it’s going to be well deserved on the part of our manager, Abhishek Sharma. It’s a good, commercial, enjoyable and content-driven film but it’s too premature to talk about our odds of winning a National Award. We aren’t over-confident people. We believe we will deserve anything the jury will pick for our movie but at the same time I think people loved the film and that is important for all of us.”
Speaking about starring in over 45 films and finishing 15 years in the film industry and how things have changed in time, John Abraham said,”See it is cyclical. If your one film does good, then people laud you for it, and you receive a bouquet of blossoms for it, and if your movie does not do well, then you get brickbats for it. So I think I’ve become a classic horse in this business. Now I know exactly what works for the film and what works in the mind of people.”
John Abraham is starring in Satyameva Jayate which stars Manoj Bajpayee and can be helmed by Milap Zaveri. Akshay Kumar starrer Gold is a biopic on Indian Hockey Team winning a gold medal at Olympics post Independence. Both the movies are scheduled to launch on August 15, 2018.
