After beating the goons to pulp in his latest outing 'Rocky Handsome' John Abraham is all set to try something new and hatke.
If reports are to be believed Harnil Degra is scripting a biopic on his father Premchand Degra who is a famous bodybuilder and has approached John to step in as leading man.
A professional bodybuilder from the small town of Hoshiapur in Punjab, Premchand won the Mr Universe title in the short height 80 kg category in 1988. He was also awarded the Achievement Medal by the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness in 2003 and the Padma Shri in 1990. Fitness enthusiast John, who also knows several martial art forms, is keen to take up the part in the rags to riches journey.
A Mumbai Mirror report quoted a source as saying, "John is in talks for the biopic. He has promised that he'll read the script and take a final call on the project."
Do you think that John would be an apt choice for this role?
