John Abraham has cleared his stand on releasing his movies directly on OTT. The actor has outright refused to do so. He said that he cannot be available for Rs. 299 or Rs. 499.

While talking to Times of India, John said that while he loves OTT as a producer, he has a major problem with the platform as an actor. This actor, last seen in Attack: Part 1, said that he is ‘very clear’ he wants to be seen on the big screen.

“I am a big-screen hero and that is where I want to be seen,” John said. He also shared that he would find it ‘offensive’ if someone shut his film mid-way to rush to the washroom.

Not just that, John spoke in money terms and clearly said that he has a problem with being available for the low cost. “I would not like to be available for Rs 299 or 499. I have a problem with it,” he was quoted saying.

Interestingly, John’s latest film release Attack did not manage to bring in Box Office numbers. On the other hand, people started noticing the movie when it released on OTT. The film is currently streaming on Zee5.

Before venturing into Attack as an actor and a producer, John delivered Satyameva Jayate 2. The movie, which featured him in double roles, was bashed from all corners. This film marked Divya Khosla Kumar’s comeback to acting.

As John continues working on Attack franchise, he is also eager to take the Force franchise ahead. While the original film featuring Vidyut Jammwal (marking his debut in Bollywood) was widely appreciated, Force 2 received a milder response. Nonetheless, John promises that Force 3 will be ‘more powerful’ than the previous films.

John will also be a part of two other movies. He will be seen in Pathaan, featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles. The actor has also announced his movie called Tehran, which marks his first collaboration with Dinesh Vijan. Both the movies are expected to release by next year.
