JOHN IN NEWS
John Abraham’s Rocky Handsome may have had an open playing field in Bollywood but it seems to have failed going up against this week’s mega Hollywood release - Batman V. Superman. The film raked in just 5.29 Crores on Friday which was far below expectations. Disappointingly, the numbers dipped on Saturday as it made just another 4.34 Crores. Add to that the 1.77 Crores it made from paid previews on Thursday and you have a fairly low opening of 11.40 Crores in the first two days. It seems highly unlikely that the film improve much in the days to come. On the other hand, Kapoor And Sons is still going strong well into the second week. The movie has raked in 57.23 Crores in nine days which is a fairly impressive figure. Did you watch John Abraham's Rocky Handsome? What are your thoughts on the movie? Do share them with us in the comments section below.

Varun Dhawan who is currently in Abu Dhabi shooting for the second schedule of Sajid Nadiadwala’s Dishoom along with John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez met with an accident during the filming of a scene. Being an action – adventure film, Varun Dhawan had to do some stunts which he was super excited about. During one such stunt where he runs and has to jump over a car, after many takes he injured himself and nearly passed out. The shooting was stopped and a doctor was immediately called on set. Varun’s blood pressure had dropped. Everyone around was very worried about Varun but after 2 hours he stood up and wanted to shoot again. The entire team wanted him to rest it out but he went ahead and gave the best shot of the stunt. Dishoom, Sajid Nadiadwala’s action adventure film, directed by Rohit Dhawan starring John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez is slated to release on July 29.
John Abraham and Varun Dhawan sounded like an explosive combo from day one and the latest still from their upcoming movie Dishoom definitely does not disappoint. The dynamic duo are up to some serious badassery in this first look of the movie. While John is riding a bike, Varun can be seen standing in the side car as they are chasede by some goons on motorcycles. The whole thing has a very Indiana Jones kind of vibe while the pose itself reminds us of Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra’s iconic Jai- Veeru moment from Sholay. The actors themselves shared the image on Twitter and seem very excited about the film. Directed by Varun’s brother Rohit Dhawan, Dishoom is slated to release on 29th July, 2016.
So the big news is that John Abraham has been hospitalized in Budapest after shooting an action sequence for Force 2. We hear that the actor even had to undergo surgery on his knee after having the blood clots removed. Apparently, the injury wasn’t a major one but it worsened because our hunky John insisted on carrying on shooting even after the incident. But there is some good news for the actor too. None other than Christiano Ronaldo himself signed a special jersey for John and of course the 42 year old had to share it like a regular fanboy. The signed autograph on the jersey reads, “To my friend John Abraham, wish all the best to you and to NorthEast United.” NorthEast United Football Club is the ISL football club owned by John and surely this jersey will prove to be a massive morale boost to the entire team. John himself has assured his fans that he is getting better everyday and will return to the sets very soon. Get well soon John! Tags: John Abraham, Force 2
