Actor John Abraham, who has been coming up with message-driven films in recent years, will soon be seen in Ek Villain Returns. The actor is going to appear next in Shivam Nair's untitled film. The geopolitical thriller will begin production before the end of 2022.

Confirming the news to Pinkvilla, the filmmaker said, "I have been working on this geopolitical thriller for a while now with Fortune Pictures. A lot of hard work and research have gone into the creation of the story structure and this script. John Abraham is playing the lead in the movie; we will reveal its title shortly.”

Shivam went on to explain that the pre-production plans for the film are underway. Fortune Pictures and Wakaao Films are co-producing the movie.

Ritesh Shah, who has previously worked with Fortuner Pictures on several projects, has penned the script for the project. He said, "Together, we are doing quite a few projects, with John Abraham and Shivam Nair, being the immediate one. Another one is a female-oriented action revenge thriller. I am quite comfortable with team Fortune Pictures; their content identification and curation sensibilities are amazing."

Wakaao is led by Ashwin Varde and Vipul Shah, whereas Fortune Pictures was founded by Sameer Dixit, Jatish Varma, and Girish Johar.

Fortune Pictures are coming up with more line-up of films, including two features directed by Srijit Mukherji, two with Gautham Menon, and one with Anees Bazmee.

We hear that Srijit's first collaboration with the production company will be an urban slice-of-life drama, and his next film will be a thriller based on real events.

Gautham, on the other hand, will helm a romantic musical film with music created by A.R. Rahman. On the other hand, Anees is producing a youthful comedy movie scripted by Jasvinder Singh Bath and Ravi Shankaran.
