In preparation to play a role on the lines of infamous gangster Manya Surve in Balaji Motion Pictures' upcoming venture SHOOTOUT AT WADALA, John Abraham is not only working on his physique but also brushing up his colloquial Marathi and interestingly Mahesh Manjrekar is helping the actor.
Mahesh being very fluent with Marathi will act as tutor in preparing John for his role. Confirming the news director Sanjay Gupta says, ''I want John to have the basic knowledge of colloquial Marathi as it will help him grasp the minute details of his character. Mahesh is going to help us out. So, he will meet John a few times by the end of the month to discuss the nitty-gritty of Marathi. We are keeping their interactions at the end of February since the film goes on floors in March. So, things will be fresh in John's mind by the time the first schedule kicks off.''
