Bollywoods’ hot action hero John Abraham who is also known for his romantic side is getting ready to unveil his creative aspect directing a film. John who is not in news now a days leaving his fans wonder what happened with him,when asked the reason why critics are writing him off even before he started, he says “But I’m used to being written off every two or three years,” and admits that he failed to understand the nuances of bollywood industry. Explaining in detail John says “I was doing what I thought were interesting films, like No Smoking (2007) and Water (2005), but they tanked in India. Then came Dostana (2008), which was huge. After that, my movies didn’t perform well again, and everybody resumed predicting the end of my career. Until Force (2011) happened.”
Presently John is focusing his energies on his production venture JA productions. But the actor doesn’t want to divulge any information about it saying “I don’t want to go into the details now. There’s still some time before things are finalised,”. He further adds , “But I’m interested in directing films in the near future. They’ll be commercial projects.”. Shoojit Sarkar is directing his first project Vicky Donor on his production banner. A kind hearted person,John supports various NGOs and is presently associated with SIKSHA in achieving 100% literacy rate.
Speaking about social service which is close to his heart he says “I’ve always been interested in charity because my mother is a very active supporter of various causes,” he says, adding, “It’s important for me to use my celebrity status to draw attention to issues that concern us today. I don’t just want to be known as the guy who walked out of the sea showing off his butt in yellow briefs (popular introductory scene in Dostana).” And he rues saying “not given to charity by nature ..Even in times of tragedy, we don’t really step up. Less than one per cent of this country actually cares about donating.”. John doesn’t want to start an organization of his own but want all to follow Salman Khan in serving the society. He says “I’d like to set up my own fund, but only when I have enough financial backing to support it myself like he does (with the Being Human Foundation).”
