'Madras Caf?' Inspired By Hollywood Thriller 'Body Of Lies'?

Much has been reported about how John Abraham, who turned producer with breezy comedy Vicky Donor, will be next making a political thriller named Madras Cafe, a film in which he will also play the lead role.

 

Now, it has been learned that the movie is probably inspired by the Russell Crowe-Leonardo DiCaprio starrer thriller Body Of Lies, which revolved around the adventures of an undercover CIA agent, played by Leonardo, and his unscrupulous handler, played by Crowe.

 

Though John did not reveal if the movie is inspired by the Holly thriller, he did admit that Madras Café has the same pace as Body Of Lies and that it will be shot in several locations, including Mumbai, Delhi, Kochi, Kanyakumari, London, Bangkok and Colombo.

 

Apart from Abraham, the film, which is being directed by Shoojit Sircar, also stars Nargis Fakhri, who will be seen playing the role of a journalist.
