Influenced by the 1911 the football match held in the pre-independence era, the upcoming project of Nikkhil Advani ' 1911 ' is based on an incident of real life in which a barefoot team will play the East Yorkshire Regiment to win the coveted IFA Shield.
This achievement not only meant as much as a football award. It also inspired the nationalist movement in India that ultimately caused India to achieve independence in 1947. John Abraham will become the legend of the movie and will be on the walls at the last of next year.
Nikkhil said in an interview that he was very eager to make ' 1911 ' even though the concept was near to his core and will quickly begin to write the project. He said that the movie is based on the Mohun Bagan and East Yorkshire Regiment's famous football match, which ultimately sparked the nation's freedom struggle.
He also disclosed that for nearly five decades John's squad had been working on the script. There were earlier reports that the movie would be directed by Shoojit Sircar, but Nikkhil finally came into the image.
He introduced the loved the concept and the reality that it was a patriotic-angled timespan film. After 'Batla House,' which earned generally positive reviews, the movie will see John and Nikkhil will reunite again.
