Mumbai, Oct 28 (IANS) John Abraham will not only be acting in filmmaker Abbas Tyrewala's second venture '1-800-Love' after the hit 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na', he will also be co-producing it.

'1-800-Love' is a quirky, witty and savagely funny look at the man-woman relationship and writer-director Abbas roped in John for the project, after having worked with chocolate boy Imran Khan in his debut film.

The filmmaker, who's still polishing up the movie's script, says John decided to jump in as a producer the minute he heard the narration.

'After hearing the narration, John not only loved the script, he wanted to come on as a partner. So, effectively, the project will have three producers - Madhu K., John and myself,' Abbas told IANS.

Incidentally, '1-800-Love' gets its title from the toll-free phone numbers in the US.

John, who's currently shooting in New York for Kabeer Khan's film on terrorism entitled 'New York', is now looking out for roles that would challenge him as an actor. After Anurag Kashyap's 'No Smoking' and Nagesh Kukunoor's to-be-released 'Aashayein,' Abbas seems to be the director John needed to get his creative juices flowing.

Abbas' movie is set to be shot in Boston in April in a start-to-finish schedule and the filmmaker has now headed for the hills to write the final draft of the script, a source close to him said.
