David Dhawan gets angry on John?May 4th, 2009 - 10:13 am ICT by Sampurn Wire
Well it seems his expressionless tag doesn’t seem to leave John Abraham behind despite having been in the industry for over six years now. Latest being, the director of his upcoming next Hook Ya Crook, David Dhawan was left furious as John struggled to get his act right.
A unit source informed, “During the recently concluded Hyderabad schedule of Hook Ya Crook, a scene was being shot which required John Abraham do not much as it was a pretty simple scene which didn’t require much acting histrionics. But John Abraham was simply not getting his lines right. After many retakes when he started getting his lines right, he was unable to match his facial expressions for the same. Then again many retakes followed. David Dhawan who has acted with best and worst of the Bollywood’s acting talents is generally known to be a cool chap when it comes to handling such situations but then even he began to run out of patience. When one more shot went kaput, he simply yelled in desperation and avoiding lambasting John in front of everyone and to cool of his own temper he announced for a long break.”
There is joke going around in industry circles for months now that during the boom time, when a filmmaker went to approach John Abraham, he was quoted a price of Rs. 12 crore by the actor. Bemused the director who had earlier directed him in a multi starrer super dud had hit back saying are you charging Rs. 1 crore per expression since you have only 12 expressions on your face while you act? -Sampurn Media
