Actor turned producer John Abraham, a half Malayali, is planning to rope in Malayalam superstar Mohanlal in his next film 'Jaffna'

'We are also looking at regional films. I am producing a Marathi film. Definitely, I would love to produce a Malayalam film. We have one of the best actors in our country there - a gentleman called Mohanlal. There is so much to learn from him,' John, who turned producer with 'Vicky Donor', told IANS while talking about his future plans.

'I hope he has a role in 'Jaffna'. We are planning to do it together,' added the actor who will co-produce the film. To be directed by Shoojit Sircar, 'Jaffna' is an off-beat political thriller about Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam's (LTTE) activities in Sri Lanka before it was decimated by the Sri Lankan Army in 2009.

After making a success as a producer, does he plan to write scripts? 'I don't know about writing, but maybe I will think of direction at some point of time,' he said.
