John Abraham Teams Up With Viacom 18 For 'Jaffna' and ?Hamara Bajaj'Movie Talkies – Thu 22 Nov, 2012 12:00 AM IST
Actor-producer John Abraham, who had teamed up with Eros for his maiden production venture Vicky Donor, seems to be shifting his loyalties as far as his upcoming films are concerned. Buzz has it that Abraham has decided to co-produce his two production ventures Jaffna and Hamara Bajaj with Viacom 18.
Sources claim that after director Shoojit Sircar was miffed with Eros for not pushing ‘Vicky Donor’ for the Oscars, John too decided to side with Sircar and changed his business loyalty by hooking up with Viacom 18. Furthermore, the fact that Viacom 18 successfully promoted Gangs Of Wasseypur and OMG Oh My God seems to have helped in titling the balance in favour of the production house.
Incidentally, both the films Jaffna, a political thriller and Hamara Bajaj, a light-hearted comedy, will be directed by Shoojit Sircar.
