Sports based films have caught the fancy of Bollywood film makers. Shah Rukh Khan’s Chak de India set the trend. Then came John Abraham’s Goal and Mukesh Bhatt’s Jannat.
Now, John Abraham is playing the protagonist in a cricket based film titled Hook Yaa Crook being produced by UTV Motion Pictures and directed by David Dhawan. Shreyas Talpade plays a pivotal role in the film.
The latest buzz is that Team India cricket skipper MS Dhoni will briefly appear in this film. In fact, Dhoni and John are buddies.
Hook Yaa Crook is said to have been inspired by the Hollywood comic flick The Longest Yard starring Adam Sandler.
The shooting of this film is now in progress.
