John Abraham has been way too impressive so far in all the promos we have seen from his upcoming movie ROCKY HANDSOME. But one wonders why the movie is named so!
Hence, at the recently held trailer launch, we asked John Abraham about who came up with the idea of such a title and John pointed towards Nishikant, who later revealed, “John will always want to take credit for the title, but I was the one to decide it. It all started when we decided on the title as JOHNNY HANDSOME, because of John. I saw his look, which is why there's handsome. JOHNNY HANDSOME was made long back and Johnny was very direct. I was the one who thought about Rocky, not John.”
John Abraham said, “I'm happy with the name ROCKY HANDSOME as I'm a fan of Sylvester Stallone, who is known for ROCKY. It's a really catchy name and I give him the credit for all the research he did.”
“And also it does justice to the subject. He's called both Rocky and Handsome in different places,” added Nishikant Kamat.
When asked how it feels working with Nishikant again after their blockbuster action film FORCE, John said, “I think I can only see it as an advantage and we have taken the film on next level. We created a benchmark with our last film and this has taken on next level.”
ROCKY HANDSOME, directed by DRISHYAM and FORCE mastermind Nishikant Kamat, is the official remake of the Korean film THE MAN FROM NOWHERE, as confirmed by Nishikant at the event itself.
