John Bechara Recession ka maara

 If there is one actor who is severely hit by recession and the current economic woes looming Bollywood, it’s John Abraham. Even with his buffed up bod and killer looks, John isn’t considered a safe bet in filmdom - a sign clearly visible by the actor’s nose-diving price and constant battle to bag films.
And joining the long list of closed projects is the actor’s dream film that is now on the brink of being dropped.
The film is question was John Abraham`s much loved project, which was to be directed by his old friend Sabal Shekhawat. But John’s dream came crashing down when the producers Studio 18 backed out of the project citing recession as the reason. However, not willing to let go John is now contemplating to back the project himself.
Our source said, “Studio 18 had loved the subject and John was extremely keen to work on the film. Sabal Shekhawat, who is among the finest ad filmmakers, was supposed to direct the film. John had loved this spy thriller. Everything was set and Sabal was in Turkey finalising the locations when he received a call from Studio 18 saying that they were no longer keen on doing the project due to its budget.”
Confirming the news, a source told a news daily, “Studio 18 wanted to reduce the budget, but Sabal does not want to compromise at all on the creative front. He was of the opinion that the film required a certain mounting and he clearly was not in favour of reducing the budget. John was cool about it as he is committed to Sabal, as the director was the one who gave John his break into modeling. John has now taken it on himself to see to it that the project goes on the floors immediately. In fact, another producer is now set to make the film as well.”
Talking about the film, John said, “Studio or no studio, the film will be made. I have complete faith in Sabal and at no point, will I let him down. I will always stand by him like I do with my directors. There is no question of the film not happening; it is very much on course.”
