John Abraham, known for making content-rich, critically acclaimed films, is now gearing up to produce a biopic on the Indian wrestler the Great Gama, in which he will play the title role. Gama, born 1880 in the Punjab, remained unvanquished for his entire career spanning more than 50 years, and was awarded the Indian version of the World Heavyweight Championship on 15 October 1910. Produced by JA Entertainment and Rising Sun Films, the biopic on Gama will be directed by Parmeet Sethi. Considering that John will be playing one of the world’s greatest wrestlers, it is understandable that the famous Abraham physique will be on display for his fans in the film. Says Parmeet Sethi, “Gama is the only wrestler to have the distinction of being undefeated in his career span of 50 years and his story is yet not told to the world … . We felt this made an interesting subject that should be highlighted, and needed to be penned down. The only actor who came to mind was John. While he has a great physique to go with the subject, there is something about him that is extremely honest and positive. Its a different character and something he hasn’t done so far in his career.”
