Mumbai, March 24 (IANS) Actor John Abraham is full of praises for his “Force 2” co-star Sonakshi Sinha and is proud of her for performing challenging stunts fearlessly for the film.
“Sonakshi is very sweet, she’s a fantastic co-star, one of my best co-stars and the work that she has done in ‘Force 2’, I really like action and especially the action that she has done, this girl absolutely has got no fear,” John said at the screening of the film, “Rocky Handsome”.
“We had to make a jump, I asked Sonakshi if she was sure, and she said, ‘I am sure I will jump’, so from second floor and third floor she jumped. I am very proud of her. Watch ‘Force 2’, our director is very special, Abhinay Deo, who made ‘Delhi Belly’,” John continued.
“It is a very fantastic film, it will be completed in July, and we have still got about 50 percent of the shoot left,” said “Rocky Handsome” actor John. Sonakshi was also present at the screening and said that she is excited about the film.
It is the first time in “Force 2” that the John-Sonakshi pair will be seen on the big screen.
The film promises to be bigger than the first part, which was directed by director Nishikant Kamat and starred Genelia D’Souza, who was also present at the screening with her husband Riteish Deshmukh.
“Rocky Handsome” is releasing on Friday and about the response, John said, “It’s just started but the response has been fantastic; the heartening response has been that all sections of the audience have really enjoyed it. Saying anything now will be pre-mature but very happy with the response.”
“The biggest compliment that I have received is that it is your best film up till date, people have spoken about the action, they have liked the action, they say that on Indian screens they have not seen this kind of action.”
“We have worked very hard on the action and it’s turned out superb,” he added.
“Rocky Handsome” also stars Shruti Haasan and Kamat as a villain.
