Meanwhile, his boss is facing a threat from a rival don and is in no mood for John to quit on him. To ensure his compliance, he takes Shalini hostage. John is given 36 hours to kill five specific targets or she dies. Racing against the clock, can he save Shalini in time?
"When Sanjay F. Gupta offered me 'Karam', I thought it was going to be an action film. But he said it was an emotional love story between my character and his wife. It was a very, very special film. Honestly, I found it pretty easy to play the intense character. My career was actually supposed to be launched by Sanjay F. Gupta. It was supposed to be with his film 'Musafir'. That didn't work out, but when we came across the script for 'Karam', we decided to go for it."
