John, 41, a football enthusiast himself, will interact and analyse matches with some of the greatest legends of football on Sony Pix Primetime show - Cafe Rio.
"I am shooting Rocky Handsome in Hyderabad. I don't think I will be able to go to Brazil to catch all the action. I cannot be complaining because I am the producer of the film. However, I am really excited to be a part of Cafe Rio. It is a great platform where you will be able to see me interact and analyse matches with some of the greatest legends of football," John told PTI.
Rocky Handsome has been produced by John's production house JA Entertainment in collaboration with Sunir Kheterpal's Azure Entertainment. It is the remake of the popular Korean film The Man from Nowhere.
The Madras Cafe star said that he will be joined by footballers Peter Crouch, Robbie Fowler, Peter Shilton, Mikael Silvestre, Ellyse Perry and Sunil Chhetri.
"It is going to be great and I am looking forward to interacting and discussing football with international greats as well as Sunil, who is the captain of Indian football team and also a very good friend of mine," he said.
