Bollywood actor John Abraham and owner of Indian Super League team Northeast United FC, who has been named the brand ambassador of Arunachal Pradesh Tourism, says he would like to shoot an entire film in the northeastern state.
‘I just told (State Tourism Secretary Dr Joram Beda) that I would like to take an entire film to Arunachal Pradesh and he corrected me by advising that not an entire film, take one schedule and then you see. I am excited to explore it and we are responsible as filmmakers and we hope it grows in the arena of tourism. Rangoon was shot there and we hope even we shoot our film there,’ John said here.
The actor also feels the region has been alienated. ‘Historically and geographically we have alienated the Northeast from the rest of India. I think it’s really sad. I think it’s high time that we include the Northeast in India.’
John Abraham says the right time to visit Arunachal Pradesh is from October to February. ‘The ideal time to visit Arunachal is from October to February. After mid-February, it rains and in October it’s fantastic so that’s the right time to visit Arunachal Pradesh,’ he said.
John, who is bike lover, also says he would like to go there for biking routes. ‘I would like to take time off personally to go there and would like to go there for biking routes. I have done more than 3,000 miles in Europe so I would like to go to Arunachal Pradesh to explore the space. The second thing what I like is the white water rafting.’
Indian Super League Season 3
The Indian Super League Season 3 is coming up and for the first time the opening ceremony will be celebrated in Guwahati on 1 October. So, it is likely that John Abraham will be in the Northeast for some time and he might also look out for some shoot locations for his film.
