Actor-producer John Abraham is not interested in commercial success of a film, but more concerned about critical acclamation of his films. He made his production debut with the film Vicky Donor and now he says that he wants to produce different films which have a lasting shelf life.
Vicky Donor tasted the success at the Box Office and was also acclaimed with a National Award. Now John is all set for Madras Cafe's release on August 23, 2013.
"As a producer, I'm not interested in commercial success. What matters is to be critically acclaimed. Vicky Donor was a different film and Madras Cafe is very different from Vicky Donor. So, as a producer, I want to make different and credible films, which will live on your DVD shelf and should be worth it," John said.
John says that the movie is made in a basic budget, but it looks like an expensive film. "This film is a political thriller. It is made in a basic budget, but it will look like a Rs.50 crore film," he said.
Madras Cafe is directed by Shoojit Sircar. John who also starred in the film is currently busy promoting Madras Cafe. The film also stars Nargis Fakhri in the leads.
