MUMBAI: ‘Shootout At Wadala’ stars Anil Kapoor and John Abraham were spotted at the Mumbai airport, returning from Bangalore.

The duo was in the idyllic garden city to shoot certain portions of their upcoming action flick, which releases next month. Both John and Anil were seen in shades of midnight black, perhaps in an attempt to look more serious and sinister, as required by the roles they play.

John is playing the role of feared gangster Manya Surve in ‘Shootout At Wadala’, while Anil Kapoor will essay the role of Mumbai’s retired encounter specialist ACP Isaque Bagwan, who is a real life character, in Sanjay Gupta’s ‘Shootout At Wadala’.

Anil recently revealed that he having a reference point for a role makes the actor’s job easier.

“In this film, I play ACP Isaque Bagwan. He is a real life person who did the first encounter in Bombay. So my character is inspired from him. Somewhere I feel that it becomes less challenging. Sometimes you do such a character that does not have any reference point, so it becomes difficult,” said Anil.

“Besides, this film is inspired from the book ‘Dongri To Dubai’, few incidents have been taken from that book. So as an actor or director or filmmaker, your work becomes interesting. I would not say it becomes easy, but somewhere we enjoy doing that,” Anil Kapoor added.

The film also stars Tusshar Kapoor, Manoj Bajpayee, Kangna Ranaut and Mahesh Manjrekar and is slated for a 1 May release.
