He is one of the hottest actors with the best body in B-town. Yes, I am talking about none other than John Abraham, who is currently very busy promoting his upcoming rom-com I, Me Aur Main, wherein he will be seen romancing Chitrangda Singh and Prachi Desai.
Instead of the regular interview, the makers of I, Me Aur Main organised for a special date with John at a popular fine dining joint in Bandra.
John breezed in looking dapper in a blue shirt with beige pants. As he entered, he instructed, "No men and cameras allowed and no questions related to my film." Did he just say NO questions related to my film!!! "I just want to have a normal conversation. You can ask me personal questions but be ready to be questioned by me too", He added.
For the next two hours John became a friend, philosopher and relationship advisor. He spoke on various topics including his love life, dealing with controversies, etc. Here is what he had to say on…
Working with an all women's team
"My team is an all women's team. I work only with women as I feel they are more loyal, hardworking and comprehensive. I know that they generally won't take a shortcut. They are more sincere. Women handle my production, my office and my life."
"I know actors who are acting 24 hours a day. If my behaviour in public is consistent with my behaviour with my friends that means I have found my personal space, then I only have to be different when I go on sets to play a certain role. But if an actor takes that larger than life image too seriously and comes home with that, then that is a problem.
I am still rooted because I have my family and school friends who keep me grounded. But there are actors who are living in the air. They are not bad people, in fact they are wonderful, but they are stuck in a trap. If an actor has a certain image then he has to maintain that image and have that lifestyle. This becomes a regiment. The actor becomes more guarded and starts living in isolation of his own world. Female actresses get into this trap far more."
