Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta said his film Shootout at Wadala will have protagonist Manya Surve, played by John Abraham, as the first shirtless mafia don in Bollywood.
"This is will be the first shirtless don. You will not get to see anyone else like this in Bollywood. No one will be able to compete with him (John)," Sanjay Gupta told reporters during the first look launch of his film in Mumbai.
John Abarham also put an action-filled performance at the promotional event.
Asked if item numbers figured in the film, the director said that Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra have been approached for them.
"There are not three but four item numbers. We have approached few of them. But it's in the process and it will be wrong to name anyone," he said.
The film also stars Anil Kapoor, Kangna Ranaut, Tusshar Kapoor, Manoj Bajpai and Sonu Sood.
Asked about how it was to work with Manoj Bajpayee, John said: "He is a good co-star and an excellent actor. He has given many good inputs in the film."
This first look of the film had an innovative promotional activity as it was launched simultaneously in five different cities - Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Lucknow.
