Whenever John Abraham has tried his hand at comedy, the result has been terrific. The action star has been a part of many successful comic-capers, including Dostana (2008), Desi Boyz (2011), Housefull 2 (2012), Welcome Back (2015) and Dishoom (2016), but the Priyadarshan directorial Garam Masala (2005) remains one of the most favourite films of many movie enthusiasts. Also starring Akshay Kumar in the lead role, Garam Masala was one of the most successful films of the year 2005.
Over the years, speculations about a sequel to Garam Masala have surfaced many times but fans are still waiting for an official announcement from the makers. The latest we hear that Garam Masala 2 is indeed on the anvil and John and Akshay have even discussed the idea.
In one of his recent interviews, when John was asked about the plans for a sequel to Garam Masala, he said, “I would love to do Garam Masala 2. Akshay and I have discussed it and we look forward to doing something like that. I still laugh thinking about it. It’s my favourite genre. I love comedy. I am a big fan of Anees Bazmi, David Dhawan, Sajid Khan but I need to be offered a good film. People think that comedy is the easiest thing to do but it’s the most difficult thing to make people laugh.”
Meanwhile, John is busy promoting his immediate release Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran.
