"I have got two films that are female-oriented and they are fantastic. But to convince a studio that I want to sell this and make it into a certain price is an effort. No matter what we say about changing times, it is still an effort. It is an ongoing battle," John told PTI in a group interview here. The 46-year-old actor is also making his debut on the digital platform as a producer.

"I am developing two web-series... I have been developing them for two years. It will take some more time. We have got the rights of a best selling book, it is an interesting book. I can't reveal the name. They are hard hitting but I don't see myself acting in it," he said. The actor says the boom in OTT platforms has fundamentally changed the cinema viewing experience.
