“I am pretty excited about the film. Right now I am reading the script and dwelling into the details of my character. I am really glad to be a part of it,” Abraham told PTI.

The gangster movie revolves around a young woman and her boyfriend who is a hitman for an underworld organization. The producers say that the movie will be full of action and violence and the characterization of the movie will be its USP.

John is certainly enjoying global fame after his recent movies did good both in the domestic and international markets. Dostana was shot entirely in the United States and enjoyed a good run in the American theatres.

Fresh from its success, Abraham is now gearing up for the sequel. Yes, Dostana 2 is on it’s way and to confirm this, we have the guy himself.

Dostana-2 is definitely on. I really can’t confirm if I am a part of it but I am hoping for the best,” the actor said.

John had been shooting for his movie New York in the Big Apple for the past couple of months. The movie also stars Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh and is based on the disturbed lives of the ordinary people after the World Trade Center terror attacks in 2001. The movie will release in June this year.
