John's injury won't delay Force

Despite a recent accident when John Abraham fell on a heap of stones, and an injury scare that followed, his latest film Force is well on track.

In fact, the film's producer Vipul Shah states that there won't be any change in the shooting schedule despite Force being plagued with problems at regular intervals.

"Yes, John did meet with an accident, but that shouldn't hamper the progress of Force. We are going ahead with full force. Pun intended," said Vipul when questioned if he was having any nervous bouts due to the recent incident. 

Of course, Vipul was nervous early on when the incident took place when John had to perform a stunt scene on two moving trains. 

However, since a major portion of the film has already been shot and Force is marching towards completion, Vipul is confident that the team would be able to make up for the lost time. 

"Force is already 90 per cent complete and we would be wrapping up the shooting portions in April. This is pretty much as per what we had originally planned and hence there is no worrying factor," said Vipul who gave the reins of direction to Nishikant Kamat of Mumbai Meri Jaan fame. 

In fact, the filmmaker, whose only other production earlier where he hasn't been a director, is blockbuster Singh Is Kinng, is now devising plans around the film's marketing and promotion. 

He is aiming for a release in the August/September timeframe. 

"We could arrive even earlier but then it all depends upon the rush of films in April/May. Depending upon that I will take the final call," said Vipul. "Having said that, Force will definitely release maximum by September, not beyond that."
