John Abraham take on OTT platform: With a nearly two-decade-long acting career, John Abraham has appeared in a wide range of movies. He has also produced a diverse range of films. He has been successful in juggling the two roles while maintaining a balance between commercial and narrative-driven cinema. As a producer, he is open to trying out the OTT medium, but as an actor, he prefers to stay with the big screen.
John, who is also a producer, claimed to have "liked the OTT realm," but only as a producer, not as an actor. The 2012 Shoojit Sircar film Vicky Donor and the 2013 John Abraham-starring movie Madras Cafe were supported by his production business, John Abraham Entertainment.
As a producer, he declared that he adores the OTT space and would like to serve the platforms' audiences. He is adamant, nevertheless, that as an actor, he prefers to appear in traditional media over online video.
“I am a big-screen hero and that is where I want to be seen. At this point, I will do films that cater to the big screen. I would find it offensive if someone shut off my film midway on a tablet because they needed to rush to the washroom. Also, I would not like to be available for Rs 299 or 499. I have a problem with it” stated John Abraham.
The last movie that John Abraham appeared in was Attack: Part, which also starred Jacqueline Fernandez, Rakul Preet Singh, and Ratna Pathak Shah.
Ek Villain Returns, John's upcoming film, is slated for release on July 29. The first release date for it was July 8, 2022. Mohit Suri, who also helmed the 2014 film Ek Villain, is the film's director.
