Tinsel town's macho stud John Abraham is all set to feature in an off-beat political thriller about Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam's (LTTE) activities in Sri Lanka.

Titled JAFFNA, the flick will be directed by Shoojit Sircar. Actor John will himself co-produce the film. Jaffna happens to be the capital city of the Northern Province of Sri Lanka.

Interestingly, VICKY DONOR, an upcoming film that apparently deals with the concept of sperm donation and infertility, too has been directed by Sircar and produced by John. JAFFNA will be the duo's second movie together.

If the buzz is to be believed then John is likely to visit Sri Lanka in order to understand the sensitive subject properly.

Shoojit's debut film YAHAAN was a love story set against the backdrop of the insurgence in Kashmir. The film, which featured Jimmy Shergill, Minissha Lamba and Yashpal Sharma, failed to achieve box-office success but received critics' appreciation.

Reportedly, John will be seen promoting VICKY DONOR shortly before its release. He is likely to talk about the issue of sperm donation as a part of the promotion campaign.
