Don't react to praises or criticism in the industry, says John Abraham

by Vibhuti Gupta, Thursday, June 14, 2018

Bollywood's handsome hunk John Abraham has gained much appreciation with his latest release Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran, co-starring Diana Panety. But over the time, he feels that he has now become an old horse of the film industry when it comes to taking praise and criticism in his stride.

John has worked in almost 45 Bollywood movies in over 15 years

Talking about the industry and the evr-changing perception of audience and media about his career, John said, "See it's cyclical. If your one film does good, then people laud you for it and you get a bouquet of flowers for it and if your film doesn't do well, then you also get brickbats for it. So I think I have become an old horse in this industry. Now I understand what works for the film and what runs in the mind of people."

According to him movies made on issues of national interest get noticed. His latest release Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran is based on the nuclear tests conducted at Pokhran in 1998.

Asked if he is expecting a National Award for his film, he said: "We hope we make it to the National Awards. I think it will be well deserved on the part of our director, Abhishek Sharma. It's a good, commercial, entertaining and content-driven film but it's too early to talk about our chances of winning a National Award. We are not over-confident people. We think we will deserve whatever the jury will decide for our film but at the same time I think people loved the film and that is important for us."

John and Akshay Kumar share a really close bond with each other. They have earlier worked in Garam Masala, Desi Boyz, Housefull 2 and Dishoom together. But on this Independence Day, Akshay's Gold and John's Satyamev Jayate will clash with each other.
