It seems like John Abraham has been a little bit busier than we thought since he was on sabbatical after his 2019 release Pagalpanti. According to the latest news, John Abraham’s action thriller Attack will be theatrically released on January 26 on Republic Day. The movie is written and directed by debutant Lakshya Rai Anand.

The movie was earlier scheduled to release in March 2020, but the raging pandemic and lockdown restrictions made it impossible for a theatrical release and the film was indefinitely postponed.

Jacqueline Fernandez was last seen in the Disney+Hotstar release Bhoot Police, a horror-comedy while Rakul Preet Singh played the romantic interest of Arjun Kapoor in the comedy movie Sardar Ka Grandson. John Abraham too was a part of the film. He played a cameo role.
