Post-'Vicky Donor' success, I'm taken seriously: John Abraham

John Abraham

Actor John Abraham, who turned producer with critically acclaimed 'Vicky Donor', says the industry people have started taking him seriously post the success of the film.

The film, starring new-comers Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam, was a surprise hit at the box office in 2012.

"After I turned producer last year with 'Vicky Donor' things have changed for me. Industry people have started taking me seriously. I think somewhere that was the turning point. They all understood that content matters to me," John told reporters here today.

"I did films like 'No Smoking', 'Kabul Express', 'Water' which were different and ahead of their time. For me 'Vicky Donor' was a big turning point."

The 40-year-old model-turned actor-producer, who has completed a decade in Bollywood, insisted he believes in doing films across various genres.

He would be seen next in Kapil Sharma's 'I Me Aur Main', Sanjay Gupta's 'Shootout at Wadala' and Shoojit Sircar's 'Madras Cafe'.

"I want to do films of different genres. Like 'I Me Aur Main' is slice of life, 'Shootout at Wadala' is action and 'Madras Cafe' is a political thriller," said the actor, who made his debut with 'Jism' in 2003.
