John Abraham is known for his looks and stellar performances. Recently, he appeared in ‘Batla House’ which performed decently at the box office. The latest buzz is that John has extended the release of his film ‘Pagalpanti’ for his old friend, director-producer Nikkhil Advani’s upcoming film ‘Marjaavaan’ which is directed by Milap Zaveri.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, John and Nikkhil Advani, who is one of the producers of ‘Marjaavaan’, are best friends. They have worked together in ‘Salam-e-Ishq’ and ‘Satyameva Jayate’. Earlier, John was facing some legal trouble while working on ‘Parmanu’. At that time, John wanted an outsider’s support and Nikkhil helped him in his tough time. And now looks like John is reciprocating with a great gesture.

While talking about shifting his film, John said, “’Marjaavaan’ will benefit from a solo window and Bhushan (Kumar) agreed with me. Milap is a grounded boy and wonderful writer while Nikkhil is a good, solid man for whom friendship is non-negotiable. I have worked with directors who have moved on, but Nikkhil understands loyalty and will work with you irrespective of how a film fares. It’s important for all of us that ‘Marjaavaan’ sets the box office on fire.”

Milap, who had directed John in ‘Satyameva Jayate’, said, “I’m also grateful to Bhushan Kumar sir and Kumar Mangat sir who supported John’s gesture and graciously moved ‘Pagalpanti’ to allow ‘Marjaavaan’ to come on 8th November. This is the perfect example of a friendship that will last a lifetime.”

‘Marjaavaan’ starring Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh and Tara Sutaria along with Rakul Preet Singh will now hit the theatres on 8th November 2019. ‘Pagalpanti’, directed by Anees Bazmee, stars Anil Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz, Kriti Kharbanda, Urvashi Rautela, Pulki Samrat, Arshad Warsi and Saurabh Shukla.
