Sarfarosh was one of the biggest hits of 1999, revolving around an Indian police officer played by Aamir Khan, and his quest to resolve cross-border terrorism between India and Pakistan.
John Matthew Matthan, who directed Sarfarosh, will be directing it sequel as well as co-producing the film with John Abraham.
As per reports, the project is still in scripting stages and is expected to go on floors by next year.
Talking about the Sarfarosh 2 and filling Aamir Khan’s shoes, Abraham said, “I love Aamir Khan. I am his big fan. It’s a challenge but it’s a different character, different story, but the ethos is the same. It’s going to be very exciting.”
John Abraham has been creating a niche for himself by taking on projects centered on the subject of patriotism. His last film Parmanu was based on the 1998 nuclear bomb blast test explosions conducted by the Indian army, and his next projects are Satyameva Jayate, Batla House, and Romeo Akbar Walter – RAW – all based on the theme of national defense.
