Aditya Chopra’s film ‘New York’ is being directed by Kabir Khan, of ‘Kabul Express’ fame and the storyline is hugely inspired by a film ‘Arlington Road’ made in 1999.Its a tale of friendship and terrorism.
John Abraham and Katrina Kaif who play the leading roles in the film have decided to bury the hatchet and co operate on the sets for the betterment of the film
The story of the film has two main protagonists who run into each other without knowing that one of them is a terrorist. This negative character of the terrorist is being played by Neil Nitin Mukesh .
From reliable sources it is believed that Neil Nitin Mukesh had injured himself while running on the treadmill in preparation for a chase sequence. He wanted it to look authentic, and ran a lot faster than he should have and ultimately had a torn ligament, so instead of doing the chase sequence in sports shoes he had to wear his boots.
Another interesting bit about the film is about John Abraham and how he was denuded for a prison sequence .Since it is set in the US prison, the director wanted to show exactly how they break your spirit in an American prison when they want you to confess to being a terrorist. Although john agreed to be completely stripped off his clothes for the shot, he was quite traumatised by the end of it.
Most of the shooting took place in Philadelphia, and is apparently still under production.
