Lakshya Raj Anand, a debutant filmmaker, has spoken on working with actor-producer John Abraham, whom he has known since his first film as an assistant director in ‘New York.’ Working with an action star, according to the filmmaker, isn’t the same as working with a director.
Lakshya Raj Anand remarked about working with actor-producer John: “I have known John since my first film when I was an AD in the movie ‘New York’,” He has watched me grow since then, and he is the most personable and easy to deal with.
“What makes it really special with John is he is both actor and producer on this film, the germ of this idea was created by us together in a room.”
The debutant director Lakshya Raj Anand added, “Working with him isn’t like a director-actor thing, it’s like we are one team. Our main point was to get amazing action scenes, shoot it at a higher scale and give audiences a new way of storytelling.”
The first instalment of the ‘Attack’ franchise is focused on a world where future battles would be conducted using technology and artificial intelligence (AI)
Jacqueline Fernandez, Rakul Preet Singh, Prakash Raj, and Ratna Pathak Shah round up the excellent cast.
John Abraham’s Action Entertainer ‘Attack’ is presented by Jayantilal Gada (Pen Studios), John Abraham (JA Entertainment), and Ajay Kapoor Productions.
