'Banana' is a slice-of-life film, which traces the journey from adolescence to teenage. "We are excited about Sajid Ali being launched as a director from our banner.
Just like people did not expect anything from 'Vicky Donor', I guarantee people may not expect anything from 'Banana' but I am sure it will bring back lot of memories when you watch it," John told PTI.
The film will mark the debut of Imtiaz Ali's younger brother Sajid and go on floors in November-December. John has had a successful run at the box office as a producer with his two films 'Vicky Donor' and 'Madras Cafe' getting a positive response. He will next be seen in Anees Bazmee's 'Welcome Back'.
The film is a sequel to 2007 hit film 'Welcome' and John is the new addition in it. "We have started shooting for 'Welcome Back' and we will finish it in January. My character is completely different in this film and I am looking forward for the audience reaction," John said.
He is also working on the sequel of gay comedy 'Dostana', starring him and Abhishek Bachchan. "Karan Johar will make the announcement on 'Dostana'. I am not the producer there so I will take a step back. Abhishek and I are very excited about the film," John said.
