Team Bollywood Bee got a chance to talk with heartthrob John where he spoke about his movie Parmanu and much more.


Read out here:

  How did you prepare yourself for this role?


Preparing the role mentally was very easy for me because I am a complete patriotic from the heart and because of I am patriotic playing this role was very special and came out easy.


How did the collaboration between you and Abhishek Sharma happen?


I was looking out for something very different. One day I met Abhishek in the office and he gave me an idea about this. We wanted to do something special so we discussed and then came up with the idea of going ahead with this.



  Is it difficult to portray real-life incidents onscreen?


Ya. It is actually very difficult. It is difficult because you get into right issues for example in Parmanu we couldn’t take Abdul Kalam’s name, Chidambaram’s name because of the simple reason that they are real people so we had to fictionalize those names in the movie.



  Any memorable incident that you would like to share that took place while shooting the movie?


I think the only incident that happened on the shooting was it was really crazy hot. We were shooting under 55 degrees under those lights. But our production team was so well prepped that we actually finished shooting 2 days before including the fact that there were sandstorms that actually blew the set away.



What kind of roles challenge you the most?


If the scripts are interesting I would like to do it. My role in RAW- Romeo Akbar Walter is very challenging which I will be shooting from the 10th of June.


What’s next?


Satyameva Jayate releasing on 15th August, RAW will be releasing next year.
