• John Abraham will make films on refugees in India

    23rd June 2015

    Actor-Producer, John Abraham had recently lunched with Barlin, a Somalian refugee who is an Indian social worker, Sri Lankan refugees Divya and her sister who are currently residing in Tamil Nadu, the Rohingas from Myanmar and a few Afghani and Iranian refugees.

    John is inspired by their daily life stories and he would make a film about refuges in India. He said, "India is a great country and we are accommodating as many people as we can. But Divya and her sister still had to seek special permission from the Tamil Nadu government to come and visit me today. The youth needs to be aware of such permissions that refugees need to seek."

    John's last production, 'Madras Café' already explored the Sri Lankan crisis and the plight of refugees in India today. He concluded, "As an actor and producer, I will only do films that are close to my heart, film which carry a lot of weight and are meaningful."
